At the end of each term HAB girls have the opportunity to write a postcard to praise someone in our school community. They do so anonymously and 'post' them to be delivered. The idea came from one of our brilliant Year 9 girls.

Year 11

In year 11 students will use knowledge gained from Theme A, B, C and D to carry out a research project. Students are given the chance to engage in a topic they found interesting in the previous Themes in years 9 and 10. This project will develop skills of investigation, problem solving, advocacy and campaigning. Theme D and E will enable students to explore current issues that impact on modern society, engaging them with what it means to be an active citizen and preparing them for their next steps in today’s global world.

In Theme D students will study the power and influence citizens in the UK have. They will look at case studies examining ways in which citizens have co-operated to improve society through actions such as campaigning, petitioning, lobbying and giving speeches. They will then engage in practical experiences of taking these citizenship actions themselves to address an issue of their choice as required by theme E by carrying out a research project.
