School Inspection Update – Social media challenge

Police are warning parents to be vigilant about the below social media challenge:

In the School Inspection Update July 2017, Ofsted wrote,

“We would like to draw attention to a potentially harmful social media challenge to young people called ‘the Blue Whale Challenge’. This international challenge, labelled as a game, is being heavily promoted on social media sites. The reference to ‘blue whale’ is the first part of this challenge, which encourages children and young people to self-harm by drawing, with a blade, a blue whale on themselves. The challenges continue over 50 days and become more serious and dangerous in nature. Internationally, there have been reports of several deaths that have been attributed to the challenge. The police are warning parents to be vigilant about this challenge.”

Hawkley Hall High School Press Release 2017

Hawkley Hall High School maintains its high academic performance. In the familiar measures we know, Hawkley Hall’s Y11 students achieved 71% 5 or more A*-C (grades 9-4 in English and Maths) in their GCSEs.

In the new government measures, Hawkley students gained 72% in the ‘Basics’ measure (9-4 in both English & maths). Based on strong performance across all subjects it is likely that the schools Progress 8 score is going to be very good, once again. These new measures demonstrate both high attainment and very strong value added progress during the five years education at Hawkley Hall High School.

We are delighted for our students. They worked very hard and were very focused on the end goal which was to get the best possible results in their GCSE exams. We would like to thank our staff, our parents and governors for their support enabling our students to fulfil their ambitions.
