Classrooms and Outside Areas

Staff and pupils take great pride in our school and its surroundings


Science at Stone Hill continues to engage and challenge our pupils. We had a trip before Christmas to Doncaster Minster with our year 8 pupils to look at “the moon”. We learnt a lot of moon facts and also did some cross curricular English and Art work

Food Technology

Careers in catering. Year 8 went to Toby Carvery to complete a fruit and vegetable workshop. All students loved learning about different fruits and vegetables and even got to try some exotic fruits like mango, passion fruit and sharon fruit. Students looked at different roles and responsibilities at Toby Carvery as well as how they recycle and cater for people with allergies. All students successfully completed the Chef School course and received a trophy, a medal and a carvery. Well Done Year 8. 


Class 3 visited ‘The Point’ to take part in an interactive music performance for part of a project called ‘We Speak Music’. They got to listen to and play a variety of musical instruments. They really enjoyed dancing to the music and even composed a piece of summer themed music! Upper school choir were lucky enough to perform at Hill House School alongside their pupils as part of Robin Hood Festival. They enjoyed performing some of their favourite songs. Stone Hill performed \’Don\’t Stop Believing\’ by Journey and \’Count On Me\’ by Bruno Mars. They also sang \’This is Me\’ from The Greatest Showman and \’You\’ve got a Friend in Me\’ from Toy Story. All pupils showed outstanding behaviour and it was a pleasure to see the two schools performing together. A few pupils also got the opportunity to take part in a musical theatre workshop. This was run by Mrs Scott who taught them the song \’It\’s a Hard Knock Life\’ from Annie and they added some dance moves as well.  


Year 8 Enterprise –Dragons Den – Inventors and Entrepreneurs. All year 8 children took part in an entrepreneurial activity in which they had to work in small teams to develop a new video game. Each team planned a story board of the game, wrote up the rules for their game and produced a games case for display in a shop. They also designed a logo for their game and then had to ‘pitch’ their ideas in front of the ‘Dragons’. The children showed confidence and creativity, excellent team work and communication skills and delivered some fantastic presentations. Well done Year 8!  

School Council Elections

School Council Election Day took place on the 11th October 2019. The election was planned and organised by School Councillors from the previous year. It was a very successful event; well done to the School Councillors for their valuable input. Newly appointed School Councillors were elected to represent their class and are looking forward to being involved in this year’s School Council and making a difference to the school. Last year’s School Council were actively involved in many achievements; a few to mention were Christmas disco, helping to achieve Eco-School Silver Award, Outdoor classroom, Outdoor stage, and many more. This year’s School Councillors will continue to work towards achieving the Green Flag Award for Eco School, the most prestigious eco Award a school can achieve. The whole of Upper School has been involved in the \’Make your Mark Campaign\’ (voting for Youth Parliament). The School Councillors have met and allocated additional jobs of responsibility. During this meeting Chairperson, Vice Chair, Assistant Secretary and Assistant Treasurer were appointed. We have had further meetings and been instrumental in making a positive contribution to the school. Some of the School Councillors have also been involved in interviewing for a teaching post. Those that took part did an excellent job. They were very confident and a credit to the school. They gave positive feedback to the interview panel about their preferred choice and reason for this decision. Their view was of similar view to the interview panel. I am sure this year’s School Council is going to be very successful in making a difference again. We will update you in the New Year.

Lower School children and staff have recently begun the \’Weekly Mile\’!
