Hatch End High School Production Society

Hatch End High School Production Society has been in existence for over 30 years and stages a large, West End quality, annual musical production open to all students. Pupils have the opportunity to work both on stage and behind the scenes, or play an instrument within the accompanying band/orchestra. Past musicals have included - Disney's "Beauty and the Beast" and "The Wedding Singer". In February 2018, the Society marked its 30th anniversary and the opening of the refurbished Great Hall with a show involving both current students and over 20 alumni - it was a wonderful evening with lots of positive feedback. To mark the future, the students also ran a Roald Dahl Workshop for over 50 primary school students.

This year, Hatch End High School, Cedars Manor Primary School and Woodhall Primary School students performed two spectacular performances of Fantastic Mr Fox, based on the popular Roald Dahl story. We are very proud of our students and staff who made this show a triumph, particularly as this was our first full scale production since the Covid-19 pandemic in 2020.

"I have been given such a range of opportunities to perform both at school and in the wider community which have really developed my confidence and self-esteem. In addition, the Society is like a family and I have gained life-long friends from all year groups and walks of life"               Daisy Suffield, Alumni.

Local Care Home Connections

Prior to Covid, Hatch End High School would invite up to 100 Senior Citizens to join us from local residential homes and the local community for a Christmas Party and singalong. The Covid-19 pandemic meant a change of direction - if the Seniors could not come to us, it meant we reached out to them. We set up a link with Kent House Residential Care Home in Harrow and wrote to the staff and residents all through the Lockdowns. Performances and workshops have continued but at 'outside' settings at the care homes. Students also painted a range of artwork to mark festivals, which they displayed around the home and we sang carols outside. We also continue to design, make and produce individualised Christmas Cards for the residents of Kent House and Rowanweald Homes, and supply hampers during the holidays.

Local Primary School Christmas Party – December

Prior to Covid, we have invited a number of students age 6-8 years from a local primary school to join us for a Christmas Party. The session involves the students taking part in a Christmas craft session, a paperchain competition, party games and a visit from Father Christmas to hear a Christmas story.

We are very proud of these events as we think it is very important to meet, entertain and learn about members of our wider community.  Our students are expected to interact with our guests and this also provides a range of excellent learning opportunities:

  • Catering students prepare the eating areas, bake and serve the food, tea and coffee wearing their official “whites”. This is a superb opportunity for them to cater for large numbers and learn to work under pressure.
  • Health and Social Care students have to write letters inviting students in from the local primary school, risk assess the working area, plan a range of suitable craft activities and games and consider any special educational needs of the visiting students. The party is always a real eye opening experience for them as they have to entertain up to 60 young students for an hour and half and this is real hands on vocational experience. The Health and Social Care students also support the Senior Citizens’ Party – helping to decorate the room and talk to the visiting people.
  • Music and Performing Arts students and students who play instruments and belong to the school choirs sing and perform – another great opportunity.

We have not let Covid deter us adapting as far as possible to ensure we could continue. We held a competition for students to write stories about Bears at Christmas - entitled "The Twelve Bears of Christmas", stories written by staff and students at HEHS and illustrated by A-Level Art and Design students was produced and distributed to all primary schools in Harrow.

We also recently created and produced another book based on overcoming adversity - once again illustrated and issued to all hospitals in the NW London Health Trust and Great Ormond Street Hospital.

We are currently offering Arts-based sessions called “ARTLETS”. We are happy to visit schools and work with a class or year group for up to a maximum of 2 hours – usually we offer a one hour session, but could do more if asked. The sessions are planned based on discussion with staff on a curriculum area(s) they would like boosted or emphasised.  We also offer areas of PCSHE/safeguarding. These sessions are tailored to other school’s needs.  This is a great opportunity for partnership working. Our students really enjoy the challenge of having to be creative in planning a very concise but fun session on a set theme – making sure that learning is taking place. This helps our students understand the importance of planning and breaking work down into bite size chunks in order to progress and emphasises the importance of using a variety of medium to deliver topics.

Local French School Experience

We regularly welcome a number of students from schools all over the world! Most recently, we have had visitors from France, as part of a 'day's experience' at Hatch End High School, whereby French students partner with Hatch End High School students to fully experience a British School.

Students spend an hour looking round the school to understand how a British School works and then have an hour of direct conversation work with our students in a session booked in the Great Hall. We always conclude each session with a group photo, to mark the partnership and publish the visits in our respective newsletters. This event usually occurs twice a year and is also a great opportunity for our students studying French to try out their language skills.
