Highlights Nov/Dec

Dear Readers
As the term ends we are delighted to share some more successes and events with you all. Have a wonderful Christmas and New Year.


Trip to the Houses of Parliament

Our Year 12 & 13 Politics students recently had the opportunity to have a tour of the Houses of Parliament on.  They saw the House of Commons in action debating the current workforce crisis in the NHS, and how pharmacists might be deployed in working in the community through diabetes and hypertension clinics.  Following this, a tour of the House of Lords to listen to a lively debate on Carbon Emissions with an emergency tabled issue on Prison Populations. It was great to see Parliament in action. 

Students were joined by our local MP, David Simmonds, to follow-up questions about how different these two houses were on the day.  Students participated in a workshop looking at how Think Tanks and Pressure Groups work within our democracy to lever influence and generate change.

All students were a credit to the Pinner High School community and demonstrated the excellent value of responsibility as future voters. 

Additionally, we received a wonderful email from a member of the public:

" I would like to congratulate you on the lovely pupils my sister and I met on the Metropolitan Line on Tuesday evening about 8pm. They were on their way back from the House of Commons.I am sorry that I do not have any of their names. A couple of them gave up their seats for us, and we had a great chat with five or six of them. They are a credit to your school and their parents. They will know who they are! "

Computer Science

All Year 7 and 8 students and those studying Computer Science in Years 9, 10 and Sixth Form participated in the Bebras Computing Challenge 2022 in November.  Bebras is a challenge which introduces Computational Thinking to students and gets them excited about the world of Computer Science.  Out of the 470 students entered, 29 PHS students were awarded the Gold Award – this is awarded to the top 10% of students nationally!  Outstanding!
