Whitwell Hall Camping Trip

Netball Update by Ruby Antonio-Hall (9SG)

Key Stage 3 students offered ‘not to be missed’ trip.

Hewett School students have loved camping at Whitwell Hall in previous years.

Places are still available for the ever-popular camping trip to Whitwell Hall in Reepham. The trip is open to all Key Stage 3 students and takes place in June. It has proven a great success in the past, with a range of activities to suit all interests. For creative types, there is a craft studio where students will try their hand at pottery, drawing classes and even t-shirt printing. The more adventurous can take part in canoeing, archery and air


-rifle shooting with fully qualified professionals. There will also be a day-trip to Sheringham where students will go swimming and enjoy some fish and chips before returning to camp. Campers will depart from school on Monday 9th June and return on Friday 13th June. The total cost is £135 which can be spread across several payments. Visit the school shop or speak to Miss Ross and Miss Atherton for more information.



On Tuesday 21st January, our Year 9 netball team took part in a competition match against Hethersett Old Hall. It was a heated match to begin with, as Hethersett took the first goal. But the Hewett School came back fighting, with Charlotte Connolly and Ruby Hall making the score equal by half-time. As the game progressed, Hewett managed to keep up the great performance they had displayed in the first half. Although we lost the match 117 to Hethersett, Hewett played to the best of their ability and kept positive. On the coach home, Ruby Hall was declared player of the match, but honestly the whole team deserved it, and we couldn't have done it without our teacher, Miss Lawrence.
