    Rugby’s newest secondary school – Houlton School – is set to feature on BBC One TV programme ‘Dom Digs In’, which will air for the first time this Thursday. The programme, which is hosted by Dom Littlewood, will explore the construction of the brand-new Houlton School ahead of opening to its very first Year 7 pupils in September 2021. Located in the Grade II listed former Rugby Radio Station, the 11-18 academy is positioned in the heart of Urban&Civic’s new residential development at Houlton. With building works on the school progressing well and on programme, the campus, which is being delivered through a partnership between the developers at Houlton, Urban&Civic and the Department for Education, will see the Grade II listed buildings transformed to become the heart of the school.

  • Pupils celebrate World Book Day with a difference
    4 Mar 2021

    WORLD Book Day became the latest event to take place under lockdown on Thursday (March 4) – but that didn’t stop pupils at Henry Hinde Infant and Junior Schools from marking the occasion. Instead of going to school dressed in their pyjamas or as their favourite book character, children took part in a host of fun reading and writing activities in school and at home. Throughout the week, staff at the Infant School chose a range of classic bedtime stories to read to pupils at home as part of a series of short videos, while each year group picked an author to learn about, explore their books and carry out a range of challenges linked to the stories. And Year 2 pupils who were in school had the chance to set up their own reading dens, to share their favourite books with their friends.
