International Women’s Day

Monday, March 27th, 2017

"Each year, the Humanities faculty at Hamilton College celebrates International Women's Day with visits from women who have made great achievements or who have had successes in a range of areas. We aim to open the girls' eyes to what they can do and what they can become. We have previously had guest speakers from the world of business, sport, education and politics (attached are pictures of Natalie Bennett (Green Party) and Emma McClarkin MEP (Conservatives))... they show our girls that there should be no limit to their ambitions, and are able to answer questions and discuss the dreams that our girls might have, and how to go about achieving them"

October 16-18th 2016 30 students in Years 9, 10 and 11 worked through their half-term holiday as they were lucky enough to be on the annual school visit to the European Parliament in Brussels. They met and discussed Brexit with MEP Emma McClarkin, who talked to students about her views on trade, immigration and the future of Britain outside the EU. As always our students proved excellent ambassadors for Hamilton asking many challenging questions.

Tuesday 1st March

Friday, March 4th, 2016

This week an incredibly talented cast of Hamilton students have performed each night in a brilliant production of the well-known Broadway musical 'Little Shop of Horrors'. We are unbelievably proud of our pupils who worked tirelessly to rehearse for their shows and really did put on a performance of such a professional standard. There were show-stopping dance routines, toe-tapping musical numbers and first-rate acting performances on each and every evening - not to mention a 7foot, all-singing, flesh- eating plant taking centre stage! We really hope you had a chance to catch our show. The students and staff are already looking forward to next year!
