Gardening Club

Whilst we have all been enjoying our summer break, Mother Nature has been helping to continue the hard work of Gardening club. The various seeds and plants have grown over the break (unfortunately so have the weeds) and the children’s hard work of last term has delivered a bumper harvest.  The pictures below show this week’s pickings but we are confident that over the next few weeks similar harvests will follow.

All of the produce has now been delivered to the school kitchen so that Mrs Parsons’ and her term can turn it into tasty home-grown dinners

A Wonderland Adventure

Carr Hill Musical Theatre Club meets for only an hour and fifteen minutes every week.  In such a short time they rehearsed and then presented an amazing, curious production of ‘Alice, the Musical’.  Children from year 1 to year 6 were involved all of whom had worked hard to learn a number of songs and dance routines as well as some complicated dialogue. Full article with photo's and video can be found HERE.

The Great School Run

Once again, pupils enjoyed taking part in the annual Great School Run.  Everyone from age 4 – 11 ran the six laps of the field to complete a 2km course. Full article HERE


Wednesday 7th July saw Years 3 and 4 testing their trebuchets. Clearly, many hours and lots of thought had been put into the building of these Roman inspired weapons. The range of designs and materials used was amazing. They included trebuchets that were ten centimetres tall and made from lollipop sticks to those that stood nearly a metre in height and made from welded metal. The full article can be found HERE

Awards Ceremony

At Carr Hill we pride ourselves on being able to offer good quality adult, family and community learning with the support of North Notts College.

With no exceptions, the recent ‘English for Beginners’ and the ‘Creative Crafts’ courses, were just that – great quality learning and a comfortable place to learn and make friends.  We are very proud that the students on both of these courses were nominated for an award for their achievements.

On Thursday 18th June, two of our parents, Renata Mazurkiewicz and Edyta Tworzowska, along with Vanessa Smith, Parent Link Teacher and Bev Fullwood, Extended Services Co-ordinator went to County Hall to the annual Adult Learners’ Awards Ceremony.  After a very tasty buffet and entertainment, our parents were presented with their certificates for their achievements on the ‘English for Beginners’ Course.  Although not everyone was able to attend, we would like to congratulate all of the parents and family members who took part and hope that this will be the start of many more opportunities in the future.

Keep a eye out for our courses coming up in the new school year

Display Boards

Around school we have many display boards that celebrate some of the amazing work that the children produce. We thought that it would be nice if this work could be shared with those of you who do not get chance to come and visit the school on a regular basis. So HERE is a selection of the schools displaysClick on any image to see the full sized image.

I know that a child’s years at primary school are among the most important of his or her life. Here at Carr Hill, we want to provide education of the highest quality - education that provides the very best opportunities for your child.

I hope that this website will give you a sense of what Carr Hill stands for but at the same time, I know that this site alone cannot answer all your questions about us and I would encourage you to contact or visit our school.
