Hammond University opens its doors!

On Tuesday 10th October, the children were ushered through the doors of Hammond School to embark on their new Hammond University courses. Offered for the first term this year, Hammond University sees pupils at Hammond School choosing a subject to study which isn't offered on the conventional curriculum and which is taught by teachers with a personal and strong interest in the topic. 

The first day saw the children enjoy three sessions on their chosen subject - from yoga to cooking, sewing to fitness, song writing to photography, and many more selections. Across the building there was a real buzz amongst the children and staff as the courses got underway and it was delightful to watch.

The second Hammond University day will be on Tuesday 21st November, and after the course is finished all the chidren will 'graduate' in their chosen course and parents will be invited to see an exhibition of their work.

Good luck children - we will be excited to see you become Hammond University graduates by the end of the term!
