We are delighted to announce that this year our annual production will be… Sister Act!
Sister Act is based on the original film starring Whoopie Goldberg and has only just been released for schools for one year only before it goes on tour around the UK.
Sister Act tells the hilarious story of Deloris Van Cartier; a disco diva whose life takes a surprising turn when she witnesses a murder. Under protective custody she is hidden in the one place she won’t be found – a Convent! Disguised as a nun and under the suspicious watch of Mother Superior, Deloris helps her fellow sisters find their voices as she unexpectedly rediscovers her own. A sparkling tribute to the universal power of friendship, sisterhood and music.
This is going to be a fantastic show and we would love for you to come and support us.

Haven High Netball Tour – Liddington 2017
Haven High Academy Sports Faculty organised and conducted another successful PGL Netball Tour to Liddington, Swindon. The tournament itself was organised and officiated by England Netball, with the students gaining the best possible game play and umpiring experiences with many receiving individualised coaching from the England officials. Three teams in total attended the weekend comprising of Year 7 / Year 8 and Year 9 students. During the student’s spare time they were provided the opportunity of experiencing outdoor adventure activities like climbing, Zip wire, Jacobs ladder and many more. All Haven High teams consistently displayed effort, determination and positive game results over the weekend and benefitted hugely from the experience offered from this Netball Tour. Our Year 9 team worked their way through to the semi-finals and achieved 3rd place overall within their age category. They were presented their medals by England professional Eboni Beckford-Chambers.
In March, the Science Faculty launched their new event – Parents in Science – whereby students and their parents come in to Marian Campus and carry out an evening of Science practical and investigation.
The KS3 evening was well attended and all students (and staff) had a fantastic evening. Below are just a hand full of photos showing the exciting evening. We had some expert help from our Sixth Form Applied Science students, and the Year 7 and 8 APCs, Miss Matson and Mrs Phillips.
Similar events will run throughout the year, with another being held on Tuesday 16th May 2017.
Since the Ofsted report of December 2016 Haven High has now received a very positive report following a monitoring visit from Her Majesty’s Inspectorate. The report is now available on the school website and will appear on the Ofsted website shortly. Full paper copies are available, upon request, from the front office.
A group of year sixth form students have been given the amazing opportunity to be mentored by local business people in the industry they are hoping to work in. Facilitated by Project Lumen whose goal is to raise aspirations in Lincolnshire. The students went to Grimmes local factory for a networking event, where they met with their business mentors and received some great connections and ate some delicious food. The students will now meet with their mentors in the business environment for further support with their careers.
Year 9 & 10 students have been given the exciting opportunity to create a brand new potato based ready meal for Brantsons, if successful these products will be sold in Tesco stores nationwide. The students recently presented their ideas and progress to mangers at Branstons who were amazed by their progress. Branstons asked the students to taste test the current products on the market (Photos attached), they really enjoyed this challenge. They are about to start trialling the product for future taste testing with sixth form students.
This talk is aimed specifically at an audience of parents and carers, taking into account their own experience and understanding of the subject. It will be tailored to support the group to explore their own understanding of self-harm and any fears they may have within a safe space. By providing a safe space to explore the issue it will help parents and carers realise they are not aloe and that other support is available to help them care for the young person in the most effective and appropriate way.
Duration: 1 hour
- The talk covers five main areas, including:
- Introduction and assurance that this will be safe space
- What is self harm (and what it isn’t)
- Why people self harm

This talk will help you to:
- Increased understanding of self-harm
- Increased confidence in talking to, and supporting, a child around self-harm
- Understand what options for support are available
