Faye submitted a fantastic piece for the Diversity Week Creative Task - to create a Pride flag out of anything - Faye decided to use her younger sister!


The Great HAPU Bake Off had some fantastic entries from our students! Below are just a few of the great cakes we received!


One day a happy thought floated on a warm breeze infecting everyone it touched with joy, even those who were trying to social distance. Ms Smeltzer


One Day… the free-man unplugged the societal controlling auxiliary-cord from his mind, only then… was he free from the low frequencies stifling his mind. Growth Mindset Mr Headley


One day, the inscriptions in my diary will enter my life as a physical manifestation of and wrapped in God's undying love. Ms C Thompson


‘One day a teacher gazed outside her window. She thought about what it would feel like to be a fleecy cloud in the sky.’ Ms Lewis


One day a man battled to walk against the torrents of winds. “I feel old” he said to himself, “my knees are hurting”. Mr Ahmad


One day I attended, in altered attire, a formal assembly of bumptious coves who joyfully spoke in bellicose barks of days of yester year. Mr Winter


One day humanity realised that history repeats. Spanish flu conquered the world but in time retreated and faded into history. Covid19 will eventually do the same. (26 words but I tried) Miss Garner


One day. The dinosaurs were missed by the asteroid. They formed the first civilisation and learned forms of communication and we unfortunately never existed. Rohan, Sixth Form


One day, the final choice made by Roosavelt resulted in the deterioration of the atomic bombs never happening and a potential land invasion of Japan. Nickoy, Sixth Form


One day Herbert the mouse snuck into the Brown’s house through the tiny hole in the skirting board; it really annoyed Gerald the cat. Ms Pengelly


One day the world will go back to normal, invisible threats recede and the sun melts the façade. Hibernation ends revealing the new normal Mr Contreras


One day, the world will end. It will end in fire, in blood, in anguish, and humanity will burn – those that do not learn. Ms Claoue De Gohr
