The Columns

Welcome to The Columns, HSD's Newsletter: by pupils, for pupils!


Packed full of features ranging from baking recipes and staff interviews to TV recommendations and tips on staying active, the publication was started during Covid-19 lockdown by a team of Senior Years pupils.

Originally the newsletter was called Quarantimes, before becoming The Term Times in September 2020, and then taking on its current name - The Columns - in August 2021.

If you'd like to contribute to the publication, the editorial team would be delighted to hear from you. Please contact the Editor Sahar Jafferbhoy or Head of English, Mrs Tevendale.  

The Columns comes out on a Friday.

You can find the latest editions, and previous copies of Quarantimes/Term Times, below:
