We also plan to hold a uniform sizing day over the summer and we'll have more information towards the end of the summer term. This is not a compulsory event, but we appreciate that some of you may value an opportunity to see the sizing of the uniform before placing an order.

Summer provision

During the summer break, we hope that our students and their families will have time for some rest, relaxation and to enjoy some free time. We hope to be in a position soon to send you details about the ‘Head Start for September’ pack of activities, with ideas of activities to try over the summer.

We know some families might worry about what their daughters have missed, because of Covid, and how they will catch up. We want to reassure you that it is our responsibility to ensure that your daughter has every opportunity to achieve her full potential at HAB. We recognise that there will be learning gaps to be filled when your daughters return and have very carefully planned our curriculum so that every girl has the chance to reach her full potential. We will take great care to support your daughter with this and we are very confident that it is achievable for all girls.

September start dates

Once your daughter has had her Year 7 induction day on Thursday 2nd September she will attend every day thereafter.
