Achievement Assembly @ NHJS Friday 5th October

As you can see from the photographs in today’s blog, we had quite an entertaining achievement assembly to say the least! As part of Book Week, Mrs Slater (English HOD), invited all of the boys to dress up as the person who is their hero or heroine.

The staff also took part and sported some amazing costumes. You can see two of our staff heroes in The Nottingham Evening Post tonight, along with a selection of boys dressed up as their heroes!

Mrs Slater judged the costumes after a parade at morning break and the prizes for the most original costumes are as follows:

Achievement Assembly…


Saif in Year 3 collected his certificate for knowing the x2, x5 & x 10 multiplication facts by heart.

In case you are wondering I chose to come in as Sir Edmund Hillary

James, Dhruv, Patrick and David came home victorious yesterday afternoon, having won the inaugural Year 6 Maths Challenge at Dagfa House. Well done boys!


Faramir, aka Dan picked up his Bronze foil award-let’s hope he’s ready for any Orcs on the loose!


Following the recent successful Y5 trip to Normandy, the following boys received prizes for the effort they had put into their workbooks whilst away on the trip.

Congratulations go to Yousef, Gabe, Tom Joshua and Razeen.


Rohan brought in his medal to show everyone for winning the David Lloyd U9 Tennis competition last Sunday.

Nottingham Half Marathon

Another first for our achievement assembly, as I presented Batman aka Mr Caldwell with his medal for running the half marathon in 1 hour 27 minutes and 16 seconds finishing 180th out of the 6,607 runners. His target was 1 hour 30 mins, so he was chuffed to beat it as you can see from the photograph.

Congratulations also go to Oliver and Isaac who both completed the mini marathon.


Our U11’s played two matches against Grangemount on Monday 1st October where we drew our first match 1-1 and lost our final match 3-1.

Student of the week…

Goes to Will for being the first student to attain 10 ‘stickers’ in the back of his home school diary. He is the first student to receive a merit certificate at NHJS this academic year. Congratulations Will!

Stickers awarded for displaying positive behaviour by all members of staff. Pupils stick them on the grid in their diary. Once they have received ten stickers, they are asked to see the Headmaster for a certificate who will then allocate ten housepoints to their on-going total.

  1. Boys, you looked fantastic dressed as your favourite heroes. Your costumes were really imaginative and creative. Well done to all you Mums & Dads who had to sort out costumes from scratch. I wonder what Mrs Slater will come up with next year!
