    Caryl Hart, whose prizewinning books have sold hundreds of thousands of copies worldwide, visited Hill House this week to speak to over 380 children about her exciting stories for girls and boys. Everyone in the audience received a free copy of one of her books, and had a great time!

    In the morning 185 Hill House pupils from Nursery to Year 2 heard Caryl talk about her life, her books, and her writing process. Caryl then helped them to create some fun stories.  In the afternoon Caryl enthralled 200 Reception pupils and staff from four local junior schools: Richmond Hill Primary; Balby Central Primary; Hatchell Wood Primary and Crowle Primary.

    We are delighted to invite you to join us for an evening of fantastic music and entertainment at this year’s Sixth Form Revue on Tuesday 20 March.

    The evening’s theme will be ‘A Night at the Oscars’, where we will be celebrating music from the movies.

    Doors will open at 7.00pm, tickets cost £10.00 per person and include a drink and nibbles. Hill House School pupils go free. All proceeds will be shared between two charities, ‘Parkinson’s UK’ and ‘Weston Park Cancer Charity’, organisations close to the hearts of this year’s Upper Sixth cohort.

    There will also be a raffle, with proceeds from this going towards Milly Everatt’s fundraising effort for “Beauty with a Purpose”, part of her new role as ‘Miss Lincoln’.

    The dress code for the evening is smart.

  • Beauty and the Beast

    Published 09/03/18

    The Lent term saw the biggest Senior School production to date – Disney’s Beauty and the Beast. The production used two stages to convey the key areas of Belle’s village and the beast’s castle, with the cabaret-style seating for the audience acting as the route between the two.

    Sixth Form students, Rebecca Vernon and Hannah Powell, directed and choreographed the entire show, running rehearsals with efficiency and enthusiasm. Katie Smith and Ella Hudspeth, also of Hill House Sixth, were instrumental in creating interesting and believable looks for each character through their passion for make-up and costume design.  

    In the build up to the show, many of the key characters including the protagonists, Cogsworth, Lumiere and Mrs Potts spent lunchtime with the Nursery and Junior School. This ‘character lunch’ allowed the actors to really get into the role and respond to groups of very excited young children who were delighted to receive an unexpected visit!

    During the production run, large audiences of both senior and junior pupils, parents, governors, staff and their families, friends and former students enjoyed the show. Acclaim was heaped on all the cast and crew members, with some deeply compelling performances by pupils from year 7 to Lower Sixth. A large number of debut performances by pupils who were cast in significant roles continued to show that drama at Hill House really does discover, grow and develop talent.

    Looking forward, the next Whole School Production will be ‘Seven Brides for Seven Brothers’ and this, too, promises to showcase the talent we have here with a cast ranging in age from 7 to 17 years old.
