The final tenant of our curriculum offer is the HHS Enhanced Curriculum. Our wide-ranging enrichment and extra-curricular programme allows our pupils to develop their passions and interests, as well as gain confidence and self-belief.
Enrichment at HHS forms part of the school day. Each pupil has a choice of enrichment options to sign up to each term, including: Sport, Dance, Technology, Creative Writing and Journalism, Music, Art, Drama, Coding and Languages. Additional clubs, such as Homework and Debating, will also be timetabled.
Regular trips and visits make the most of museums, universities and all that the cities of Leeds, York and Newcastle have to offer. There are opportunities to participate in outdoor pursuits to build confidence and leadership skills via CARES Bushcraft and the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme. Pupils have access to NSAT events such as: Spelling Bees, Debating competitions, Maths challenges and Sports days. Pupils can also participate in our annual shows, music concerts, the school choir or take up instruments.
