One of the best things about doing poetry is when teachers get in touch with details on how they’ve used them for their classes, discussing writing & wider sociopolitical issues. This Y9+ worksheet done by Ms. Bailey is great: pls use if u wish https://t.co/Gp8FX9VwdC

Love it; the more students can see that separate ideas in Physics can be connected in a knowledge "web" the better! Definitely trying this with some of my classes. https://t.co/aa3XXiIHh5

There's more to come, so watch this space...


Literacy Lions

Our Literacy Lions are Year 8 students who mark peers’ work for capital letters, apostrophes and full sentences. Our Literacy Lions are chosen because they are confident about grammar and we also train them in techniques to help them support other students.

Reader Leaders

Our Reader Leaders are girls who help younger students with their reading. Reader Leaders are trained in phonics and comprehension and help girls in years 7 and 8 with their reading during tutor time. The results can be dramatic. “There are students who have made two years reading progress in one year,” says Amy Morris, Head of Learning Innovation.


Audio library

We’ve asked some of our most book-loving students to record extracts from their favourite books, to encourage all students to enjoy reading. The recordings are made in the HAB audio studio. Listen to our students reading from their favourite books.


Spoken Word events

Our Spoken Word events are a platform for HAB girls to share their outstanding creative writing. Students, teachers and parents are all invited to the regular showcase events, which also include music and singing. “We have some fabulous writers here at HAB and we want to give the girls a regular platform for sharing their work,” says Ms Morris.

We very much look forward to seeing you in the library soon!
