The School Visitor

HORRIS HILL SCHOOL PUPILS IMPRESS HRH THE DUKE OF YORK WITH THEIR ENTREPRENEURIAL PRESENTATIONS 

Horris Hill School is honoured that His Royal Highness The Duke of York KG, is The School Visitor and came to visit us on Friday 13th October.

Headmaster, Giles Tollit: “We were delighted to welcome The Duke of York to Horris Hill again and to share with him our outstanding recent results and to show him the model for our current theatre project, which will be of huge benefit to both the school and to the local community.

The Duke of York then joined all Horris Hill Pupils for a “Dragons Den” style “Pitch Battle”, where 15 boys impressed him with their entrepreneurial pitch presentations for a whole host of ideas.  The two winning presentations focused on a personal transportation device and smart internet-connected furniture.

He encouraged the boys to continue their creative and “out of the box” thinking and seize all the wonderful opportunities available to them.
