Virtual Open Evening

Welcome to our Virtual Open Evening event!

I would like to extend a very warm welcome to the families of Year 5 and 6 students across the Borough. The Hewens College Virtual Open Evening is designed to give you a flavour, both of the life and learning of students at the College, and to open a window to the improvements that have taken place here over the last 18 months. The Hewens mission is 'To Change the World' - we meet this challenge head on with excellent teaching, a kind and caring environment and with the highest expectations of our students. Enjoy our collection of videos and, pandemic allowing, we hope to meet you all very soon.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at hewenscollege@trhat.org. I am hoping to be able to offer tours of the College for individual families pending changes in government guidance, so if this interests you, please do watch our website and our social media (Twitter and Instagram) for further information.

Stephen Waldron,
Principal

 

In light of the current situation, we are not able to hold our Open Evening this year in the traditional way. Instead, we have prepared a Virtual Open Evening experience.

All information for this event can be found by clicking on the links below. Please note that the virtual tour will not be premiered until 6:00pm. However, you will need to press play for it to start at its scheduled time. In the meantime, please enjoy your virtual visit as you gain an insight into our ethos and values, and a sense of our community spirit!

College Uniform Orders

During this unprecedented time, we have arranged for uniform to be sold online. You will need to register your details in order to proceed; this will allow you to make your selection, pay for your order online and then arrange for a convenient time for collection. We do encourage you to use the sizing and measurement guide that will be available on the website. A hard copy of this guide has already been provided to the parents, guardians and carers of those students who will join us in Year 7 in September.

Due to government recommendations, there will be limited opportunity to try on any garments, so please do use the guide mentioned above. We can assure you that any exchanges will only be considered if all the tags and packaging are intact. We will also wait for 48 hours before returning the garments to the stock pile before someone else is able to purchase it; this is in line with the guidance that most retail outlets are following. We hope you find this new system of transaction helpful.

Cashless Catering System

We have introduced a new cashless catering system - IPayimpact. This means that in an attempt to eliminate cash payments, parents, guardians and carers are requested to pay for their child's school meals using our online payment system. This will provide you with a convenient, secure and verifiable way of making online payments for school meals as well as uniform.

Students will need to be registered to be able to purchase items from the canteen. Once registration is complete, you will have access to your account statement and will be able to manage your payment history and automate online payments. Students will then be able to make payments by simply placing their finger on the reader, with recognition done through our biometric technology. The software will then automatically deduct the value of the items from the student's account. 

This is a simple and secure way for parents, guardians and carers to make trusted cashless payments and efficiently manage school purchases. If you have any queries or wish to discuss our new cashless payment system, please contact the College at hewenscollege@trhat.org.

Trust Transportation

The Trust is able to offer specialist transport provision to access our sites. As such, we have a fleet of transportation we utilise to transport students across sites. To access these provisions, students are required to follow our stringent prevention practices as advised by the government for any public transportation.  The minibuses go through a rigorous cleaning regime following each journey and it has been made mandatory for students to wear face coverings for the full duration of their journey. We will continue to issue frequent communications to ensure all necessary precautions are taken and that all staff are up-to-date with the official published government guidance.

Studio Colleges

In Key Stage 4, we offer two further pathways at Parkside and De Salis Studio Colleges. We offer industry ready subjects that can easily be transposed to industry by combining academic and vocational learning together with real work experience. This enables our students to become experienced, qualified and highly employable young people and through high quality classroom learning alongside practical work related activities, students will develop the skills, experiences and qualifications necessary to succeed in an increasingly competitive employment market.

As a Trust, we have collaborated with a number of well-established companies to host many events, enabling us to forge long-term relationships, exposing our students to valuable opportunities and providing them with engaging, rewarding and memorable experiences. Previously, we have had the opportunity to work with VIPs from the Cayman Islands and InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG).

Parkside Studio College is an exciting opportunity for students who wish to pursue their vocational interests in the fields of Creative Media, Hair and Beauty, Hospitality, Health and Social Care, and Sport. With specialist, industry-standard facilities, students can learn practical skills in a workplace environment, alongside their core subjects. Students have the opportunity to undertake real workplace visits and experiences, such as through Hayes FM – which is on site at the College – the Trust’s day care nurseries and links to companies such as the InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG).

At The Rosedale Hewens Academy Trust, we have a lot of initiatives to promote reading.
