NHTS students are currently taking part in voting for the best teenage novel of 2015!
We have joined hundreds of schools across the country who are shadowing the Carnegie Children’s Book Awards and reading shortlisted novels by amazing authors including Patrick Ness and Geraldine McCaughrean and posting our reviews online.
We are holding a celebration event during the Carnegie Award Ceremony on June 22nd to see whether the judges agree with our choices!
The group are enjoying swapping, discussing and reviewing the best of teenage fiction and we are sure that the Carnegie Awards will become an annual feature on the NHTS calendar.

Joanne, whose books are published in over 50 countries, joined students to discuss her life as a writer and share her many enchanting experiences with them. Students also took part in a question and answer session and writing workshops with the popular author. Joanne had students and staff spellbound with her truly memorable visit and we welcome her back, for tea and biscuits, anytime.
A group of our Year 9 students have been working with a group of students in Ecuador, South America. Spanish is the official language of Ecuador and our students sent some of the work they have been studying in their Spanish lessons to the students over there, along with some NHTS branded goodies and information about our school. Below is a photo of our students’ parcel arriving in Ecuador.
The UK Maths Trust annually hosts the UKMT challenge, which is split into two age categories. Thirteen year old Tyler took part in the senior challenge, which is designed for A-level students, and secured 2nd place despite being 6 years younger than his nearest competitors.
Maths teacher, Mr Rohit said: “Tyler is a superb mathematician, way ahead of his current age group. His achievements have been recognised by an international maths organisation and he will be going on to compete in the British Maths Olympiad”.
Congratulations to Tyler on this fantastic achievement.
