International Women’s Day

In the past we have celebrated International Women’s Day in different ways. The theme this year is “Balance for Better”.

During pupils’ registration periods, they will have the chance to explore the theme for this year in the form of discussion or debate.

We aim to produce a display in school that includes photographs of pupils and staff adopting the ‘Balance’ pose (see below). Photographs will be taken in school over a period of time, but if you would like to take a photograph outside of school and send this is, please feel free. This may be taken in a preferred location. Please only include images of HMS pupils. Photos can be sent to

There is also a competition for pupils to write a short biography of a woman that has made or continues to make a difference in society. The biography can be no longer than 400 words. The deadline for this biography is the last day of this Spring term.
