Bonfire Night 2018
Rob and his team set to work building a massive bonfire beyond tumbledown and harvesting the pumpkins and giant courgettes for the girls to carve. Meanwhile the girls started work on their skits with their form teachers.
After a through check for sleeping hedgehogs the bonfire was lit to the delight of the girls who gathered round with sparklers in hand. After much shrieking and fun everyone was ready to tuck into a delicious hog roast provided by Else Farm Butchers washed down with mulled wine and home make butternut squash soup.
Once everyone had been fed is was time to gather in the gym to watch the skits. This year’s highlights included a Hanford version of Strictly Come Dancing and Little Red Riding Hood while a few brave impressionists gave us their version of Mr J with iPad and Mr J doing a silly walk.

The final results are in for this year’s senior school scholarships and Hanford is delighted that out of a year group of 22 girls thirteen awards have been achieved. Academic scholarships were awarded by Cheltenham Ladies College, Heathfield and St Mary’s Calne to three girls in addition to an exhibition for St Mary’s Calne andRead More
