I would like to start with a huge thank you for your continued support for your children and the school over this extraordinary period. All of our lives have been shaken and changed in so many ways and this “new normal” is set to be with us for the coming weeks. We also send our sincere thoughts to those who we know are really struggling – those who themselves or their families are sick and hospitalised – those who have lost their jobs – those who are finding it so hard to cope and manage. We all do need to be strong for our children and I am sure that we will emerge with new ways of working, new hobbies and hopefully better and more thoughtful citizens. I am also aware that many of you are volunteering, whilst others as key workers are employed for long hours tackling this pandemic.

As you will be aware, the situation with the coronavirus outbreak is changing rapidly and we are committed to keeping you updated on the latest guidance. On Friday 13th March I wrote to all parents and carers, clarifying what will happen to students’ learning in the event of a school closure. The letter and guidance are available on the ‘letters’ section of the website. Our priority is to maintain the delivery of high quality teaching and learning to our students as far as possible.
For the first time, Year 10 students represented the school in the annual AMSP (Advanced Mathematics Support Programme) Maths Feast competition. The event looks to challenge students in teams of four on challenging content related to their current studies and beyond. This year questions ranged from simple GCSE problems all the way up to the appearance of Further Maths A Level content, with one of our two teams getting almost full marks on this round!
All throughout the week beginning Monday, 10th February everyone here at Fearnhill took part in the Hertfordshire wide ‘Feeling Good Week’.
The purpose of the week? To boost the emotional and mental wellbeing of our students and staff by running a series of special events and activities and to inform where support and help can be accessed within the wider community.
The result here at Fearnhill? An absolutely fantastic and positive week for all our students and staff many of whom participated in activities they had not done before.
