Why our young people value the opportunities at HEHS
Our annual expedition to CERN in Switzerland to see the world’s largest and most powerful particle accelerator—the Hadron Collider—is just one of the Science highlights of the year. Postponed for the last year by Covid, but links are still open and we are looking forward to being able to travel again as soon as Cern reopens.
“To have the opportunity to see what you read about in text books brought to life is truly amazing and helps me understand the importance of what we learned. It really brought home to me the international scale of the whole operation and has prepared me well for further studies.” – Chandler Low
The key contact for Cern is Dr H Mehta. Please email email@example.com for further details.
It is well known that the ability to present and debate confidently to a wide range of audiences is one of the most important life skills we can have in order to be successful. Debate Mate is a fantastic, national debating programme for students facilitated by students at the best universities, providing our students with the opportunity to practise these vital skills such as speaking, listening and critical thinking.
“I never used to watch the news, but now I do because at Debate Mate we talk about what’s going on in the world. I want to be Prime Minister one day, and that’s all because of Debate Mate.” – Jessica Woolf

The Brilliant Club, a highly academic but enriching organisation that aims to increase students’ access to the country’s top universities. This is aimed at all years and involves students working with PhD tutors on a specific, supra-curricular thesis and completing an extended written assignment on this topic, the winners of which are published in the national magazine, The Scholar.
“The Brilliant Club was an amazing intellectual experience and I am ecstatic that my essay was published. I’d highly recommend the Brilliant Club programme as excellent preparation for university.” – Kush Pattni
