    Well that sounds great
    I waited this long because I wasn't sure if I would like it or not.

    :^D more people going! Yes! ;_;
    X^P mines 10th August, and from the pics I've seen its so cool. Does anyone know if your activities depend on the subject you chose? For example, do only the people who chose sports get to do the 16k hike? Or does everyone get to do the same thing, and then at the end we split into our subject groups to do the final community thingy...?

    ._. Sorry, my question phrasing skills suck.

    You are put into groups of your subject, then you do activities with them, the first week, you do the same activities as the other groups, but week 2, you do certain activities depending on your subject. eg Photography (my group) went to a Nursing home to talk to them and take pictures, while the sports group went to the nursing home to teach them sports.

    I got sent a letter which talked about 3 dates, 2 of them being the introductions to english lit and mathematics (5th and 13th june) which i couldn't attend. The only other date (that i remember anyway) was on the 20th of August. Im worried that i missed some other event because surely the 20th of August couldn't be the induction day right?? I read on the school website induction day is supposed to tell students what they can study over the summer to help prepare them for the sixth form, if that's true then the 20th is way too late. Im almost certain i missed something... could someone fill me in please??

    The two dates (5th and 13th) were optional speeches about certain subjects. I was not able to go to any of them either. It doesn't really matter, they were optional. The next date that you should've got was an Induction day date, mine in particular was on the 29th however they varied. You seem to have not got that. The last is the results day date (20th of August) where you go to HWSF and give in your results and enrol, in which they give some paperwork. That is not the induction day. You should've received a letter in June/May in which it tells you about the optional events, which house you are in and your induction. I don't know how compulsory the induction day was, but it had useful information.

    I reread the letter and i cant believe i misread the induction date (which was on the 1st of July). Not a great start to the year -_- . If its not too much to ask could you (or anyone else) tell me what happened on the day? What information did you find out? I'll email the school and ask for more details.

    The principle first gave us a speech which consisted of a lot of bridges, talking about how much you should love a subject and what they expect of us. It was quite interesting tbh. Then there was a tour of the building while current hwsf students were studying, it was practically like the open evening in which you talk to the students and teachers. Then the students are given a random piece of paper consisting of half of a Shakespearean quote (Well, at least mine did), and we had to find the other half (which is with another student), when we are paired up, we played a few ice breakers and then were put into a group for a competition, the competition consisted for scientific, mathematical, and englishy(?) problems which you have to solve. Then they check which group got the highest and that group wins (They don't win any sort of prize). Then another open day sort of event occurred in which you get also a reading list of the subject which you picked, that reading list is not compulsory, but they do recommend reading some books out of that. Then they talked about meeting on results day and getting enrolled.

    This was the key information (Correct me if I'm wrong):

    20th of August: Come in, give your results by 3pm, get information, walk out

    They provide a laptop tablet hybrid for a small fee for use, or you can bring your own

    The reading lists (Just name your subjects, and someone can send you the subjects reading list)

    The history of your house and what it matters within hwsf (its practically the houses within Hogwarts just with a lot less history and behavior has nothing to do with it).

    Hope this helps
