2 teams of Y7 and Y8 students entered the prestigious ‘F1 in Schools’ competition, and competed at the regional finals at the National Centre for Motorsport Engineering’
So we’ve got a book club for grown-ups
The last day of the Christmas term always goes with a bang at Hope Valley College.
Well done to the Y9 boys for a battling performance in last week’s 5 a-side tournament at Glossopdale.
Played some terrific football in the tournament at Chapel on the evening of Dec 4th, eventually finishing third in a very close contest.
The Hope Valley College climbing club visited the Works climbing wall in Sheffield recently, with so many students that it had to be two separate visits.

Every school offers clubs and activities for children to do. At Hope Valley College we do the same. What makes us different is the variety and uniqueness of what is on offer. Our staff feel passionate about enrichment because it develops excellent relationship with students and it broadens the horizons of students. We aim to give our students unique and sometimes life-changing experiences. Many of our enrichment activities are core to our curriculum, for example our outdoor education programme. Other activities are extra-curricular, like our many trips and visits, some of which are overseas.
