U16 Girls Reach English Schools' National Football Final
Created: Wed 5th Feb 2014 at 10:15:09, Last Update: Mon 10th Feb 2014 at 09:09:48

Congratulations to the U16 girls team on reaching the English Schools' National Final yesterday. The girls travelled to Laurence Jackson Sports College in Middlesbrough. After a nail biting 80 minutes the score was level at 2 - 2. No chances were converted after extra time which meant the game went onto penalties. After the first 5 automatic penalty takers the score was 4 - 4 which meant sudden death. . . . Click here for full article.

11th January - Number 24

18th January - Number 33 - Not Allocated

25th January - Number 11 - Not Allocated

Good luck!


The 49 club is run by the Friends of HGS. You can join the 49 club by enquiring via the Business Office at school, who will give you all the details. Ring Mrs Illingworth on 01924 402202 for more details and an application form.  Essentially you pay a pound a week (in quarterly instalments by standing order) and you “own” a number between 1 and 49. If your number comes up in the Saturday National Lottery lotto draw as the bonus ball, then you win half the prize fund. The rest of the monies go to a fund to be spent by the Friends in support of the school.

Schools Performance Tables
Created: Fri 24th Jan 2014 at 11:58:26, Last Update: Fri 24th Jan 2014 at 11:59:03

Once again we are delighted with our showing in the DfE official performance tables, which were published on Thursday. Those who take the Yorkshire Post, or visit the BBC or Daily Telegraph web site will have spotted that by a particular measure we have been ranked as the fifth highest attaining school in England at GCSE, and 32nd on the new "Advanced Academic" measure. Taking a call from the Yorkshire Post I was naturally rather pleased to hear that we were considered to have "unequivocally the best results in Yorkshire".

This accolade is a tribute to the ambition and hard work of our fabulous students and outstanding, dedicated staff, and we are exceptionally proud of the progress our students make.

I must, however, as I always do, remind everyone to take great care when drawing conclusions from the ranked tables published in newspapers. The DfE does not produce ranked tables. These are compiled and published by others from the official performance data. the DfE tables show a range of indicators and no single figure on its own can ever tell the whole story. Parents and other interested parties should always take account of a full range of information including hard data and other factors when considering the effectiveness of a school, judging it or choosing it. Happily I can report that HGS performs very well on all the published measures, and would encourage people to take a look.
