Bohunt School Radio project launch, Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory, a collaborative community art spray paint project, explosions in Science with Jon Tickle, highlights from the new Sixth Form, tales of expeditions and Geography turning into the vibrant nation of Nigeria were just some of the wonderful sights on offer to the huge crowds at our Open Evening last Thursday.
Families flocked to enjoy the ‘Festival of Learning’ Open Evening. The atmosphere was electric with prospective students and their families immersing themselves in a range of exciting activities and experiences, guided and encouraged by the current Year 7 and 8 cohorts.he evening was a chance for parents to familiarise themselves in the wealth of opportunities available – from outstanding academic provision to ‘Big Expeditions’. Families learned about how the house system allows individual students to be known, nurtured and challenged and hear about the School’s superb track record for GCSE results, due to the outstanding teaching that has led to Bohunt’s Teaching School designation.
As always, it was an excellent opportunity for students to bring their talents to the local community. The immersive dance video and projection installation, the live music dance and drama performance including student bands, big band, and string ensemble and the launch of the brand new Bohunt School Radio project were just some examples of the performing arts on display.
Science once again showcased a fantastic learning experience, ably assisted by Jon Tickle who returned to Liphook once again to perform a fascinating show of experiments and demonstrations. Visitors could interact with robots in IT, exercise their maths ‘circus skills’, explore the globe interactively in humanities, debate global affairs with the student politics group and get stuck into the outdoors with demonstrations and talks from both staff and students involved in the varied Outdoor Education programmes.
Parents commented on the enthusiasm and professionalism of the young tour guides, many of whom have only been students at Bohunt for a matter of weeks, and were glowing in their praise of the older pupils who were leading sessions and activities across the curriculum range.
Neil Strowger, Headteacher of Bohunt School, said:
“Bohunt School is proud of its high standards and exceptional achievements. These are largely due to culture of innovation, the provision of fantastic learning environments and a wealth of opportunities for students that develop leadership, ambition and self-esteem, as well as outstanding attainment. The level of interest in Bohunt this evening, and the superb summer GCSE results are testament to the hard work of our students and staff in making our ambitious educational vision reality.”
This is not the only opportunity to experience Bohunt School’s ethos of ‘Enjoy – Respect – Achieve’ in action. On Wednesday 3 October the School is delighted to welcome prospective A-level students and their families to the Open Evening for Bohunt Sixth Form, which opened in September 2017 and has already seen 100% A* achievement for its Y12 cohort at EPQ. Bohunt Sixth Form offers both outstanding teaching and exceptional enrichment opportunities to students from all schools in the area. Go along from 6.30-8.30pm to find out just how much is on offer.
