Many congratulations to our 2017 leavers on a strong set of A-Level results.

18% of all results were graded A*, more than double the national average, at a time of more stringent qualifications being introduced. 85% of results were graded A*/ A/ B, making it another successful year for Notting Hill & Ealing and the girls themselves.   11 girls gained 2 or more A* grades, and 24 girls (almost a third of the year) gained 3 or more A grades.

These results that show how much effort the girls, and the staff who support them, have put into their studies during their time at school and is just reward for their endeavours. The girls now head off to a wide range of courses and universities whether it be Maths at Durham, French and Russian at Oxford, History of Art at Edinburgh or Music at Guildhall School of Music & Drama. It has been such a pleasure seeing every girl finding the right path for them and doing so well. 

They should be rightly proud of what they have achieved as are we.

We are delighted to announce that Leila Brown (NHEHS 2011) is a winner in the GDST Emerging Talent Award for Engineering 2017. 

Leila who studied Mechanical Engineering at Leeds is currently on a three year training scheme as a Rehabilitation Engineer with the NHS. Her work aims to make daily activities easier for people with complex needs, arising for example from disability or injuries, by using engineering principles and solutions.

The panel of judges was so impressed by Leila’s application that they have made a grant to pay for her to attend a conference (Oceania Seating Symposium) while she is on an elective in New Zealand.

Leila commented ‘This is an incredible opportunity to meet other clinicians, manufacturers and suppliers in the rehabilitation field and I have no doubt that attending will help me in my career progression as well as in my current role. I am so grateful for this award, and cannot thank the judges and the GDST enough for making this wonderful opportunity a reality.’

Girls from Years 7 and 8 joined teams from 13 other GDST schools around the country for this year’s GDST Day of Dance at the University of Bath.

During the day they attended  workshops in commercial street dance, contemporary dance, release technique and musical theatre which provided new experiences of different styles.  These workshops also provided the chance to learn routines and perform them.  For our team the day also proved the perfect opportunity  to perform a dress rehearsal of their competition routine ahead of their appearance on 9 July in the regional heats of the Dance Challenge UK competition.

A perfect summer evening brought the first NHEHS runway show, a new initiative, conceived and organised entirely by sixth formers.

The theme of ‘nature and its elements’ brought us pieces  inspired by water, coral reefs, air, waves, flames, crystals and flowers.  These were true couture items, one off creations made with love and passion.  They showed real technical skill and design flair.  They were fitted specially for their models whose make up complemented the pieces perfectly and who ‘walked’ with an aplomb and confidence that would have graced any Parisian catwalk.

Our judging panel of fashion insiders (all Notting Hill & Ealing alumnae),   Antonia Kraskowski currently fashion editor at the Daily Express, Shailina Parti, buying and merchandising director at Jigsaw and Lucy Dartford, fashion PR and director of LDPR, gave expert feedback to all the designers before reaching a decision on their winners who received the prize of tickets to London Fashion Week.

All proceeds from the evening will go to two charities chosen by the organisers – The Mango Tree and SEED.

Sixth form students of Politics and History have been to Washington DC.  This was certainly a fascinating time to visit Washington, with the city at the centre of the world’s attention. 

The trip began with a full day walking tour of all of the major monuments and memorials, enjoying stunning weather and learning a great deal. A particular highlight was being able to stand in the footsteps of Martin Luther King Jr. at the Lincoln Memorial. On subsequent days visits to important political centres such as the Capitol Building and the Supreme Court offered the opportunity to rub shoulders with real American politicians and helped to bring both the A Level history syllabus and the Government and Politics syllabus to life as both demand an understanding of how these institutions function.

There is such a range of museums in Washington DC that it is impossible to get bored. There were visits to the American History Museum, American Indian Museum and the Natural History Museum. Soaking up American culture at the Washington Nationals baseball game was a favourite moment for many – even if it was hard to understand who was winning and why!

 

Evensong

The Senior Chamber Choir was invited to perform Evensong in St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle.  This is the fourth time the choir has performed here and as always we were honoured to be given this opportunity to sing in such a beautiful, historic location.

The chapel itself is an impressive structure, with the oldest parts dating back to the 1300s and is home to centuries of important history.  The choir accompanied the service, singing a variety of appropriate religious music in between the readings and the prayers.  Special mention must go to Miss Bushell who sang the lead Cantor part, normally performed by a church official.

The choir performed wonderfully and received many positive comments from the congregation. This incredible opportunity not only gave the choir a chance to showcase their abilities in such a stunning location, but also allowed them to play a part in a service which brings together members of the community.

Year 4 have been  experiencing Indian culture.

The girls wore beautiful, colourful saris as they took part in various activities including traditional Indian dancing and attending an Indian carnival. They also channelled their inner Zen through the practice of Ashtanga yoga and meditative breathing.

This week, the Junior School was a hub of activity with inspiring assemblies, hands-on workshops and exciting demonstrations all centred on science, technology, engineering and mathematics as the girls got involved in STEM week.

Visitors included science broadcaster, Dr Emily Grossman, who encouraged them to follow their dreams and explained that absolutely anyone can be a scientist and Dr Martin Carette who put the girls’ engineering and design skills to the test.  We also welcomed Editor in Chief of the New Scientist,  Sumit Paul-Choudhury and Professor Juliet Pickering from Imperial who introduced Year 5 to some of the mysteries of  astronomy.  The NHEHS Senior school students also came along to run workshops including demonstrating their amazing lego-build robots while Year 12 chemists welcomed us to the senior school labs for some hands on experiments.  Finally, a firm favourite with everyone were the fabulous Bubbly Maths Pals whose show used unusual props to illustrate the mathematical fundamentals of shape and measurement. How many teachers can you fit in a cube?

Summer term sports fixtures are now well underway.  

We began the term with athletics against St Augustine’s and Godolphin and Latymer fielding teams from Year 7 – 10.  Standout performances included  a throw of 21.03m in the javelin from Year 9 captain Vicky N. while Alex M. (Year 10) put in strong performances in both hurdles and javelin.  Elsewhere on the track, Eva Maria W. (Year 7) recorded 5mins 40 secs in the 1500m and we had two outstanding winners in the sprint races with Jasmine P. (100m) and Isabella H. (200m) from the Year 8 team.

On 4 May, our Year 10 and 9 A and B rounders teams played against Godolphin and Latymer and though we didn’t record any wins the Year 9 A team put in a strong performance which led to a close result.  The Year 8 A and B teams were also in action, this time against Latymer Upper, and produced two wins.  Excellent news for Miss Munroe who continues her run as undefeated rounders coach.
