Mr Reed and Mrs Cook took 35 pupils from years 7, 8 ,9 and 10 to Twickenham rugby stadium to watch the new England rugby team in an open training session. The students got to watch some rugby legends, as well as future stars, honing their skills as well as listen to some interviews with head coach Eddie Jones and new captain Dylan Hartley amongst others. Some pupils were even lucky enough to get their tickets, rugby tops and rugby balls signed by the players. The school would like to thank our guest coaches Charles Grey and Dave Gregory who came along as volunteers in order for the trip to run. They also freely give up their time every Thursday to help coach the boys rugby. Mr Gregory took some photos of the day which can be seen here.

On the 18th of January in their assembly, 7JG celebrated the work of Martin Luther King and his legacy. The Power Point Presentation was running on a loop while students were entering the Auditorium. This gave each student a chance to learn a bit about Martin Luther King and watch a short video of his speech ‘ I have a dream’.
The main assembly theme, however, that 7JG worked very hard to organise and present, was called ‘ Globalisation and its impact on the environment’. Every student from 7JG took part in the organisation and the presentation of the assembly and sent a clear message to fellow students that we all are responsible for our environment and should do our best to help improve it. Students watched, with great interest, a video about a 12 year-old- girl who spoke in front of delegates from many countries at the first Environmental Convention in Rio. After the video all Y7 students were asked to think about what they can do to help the environment. Each student wrote on a piece of paper what they are going to change from then on so they can help our school community and the environment. It was clear, in students writing, that the message to safe and care about the environment sent by 7JG has reached everyone. Tutor Presentation

Harrow Way’s Year 8 football team made the journey to Mountbatten School on Tuesday evening to compete in the last 16 of the Eastleigh, Winchester & Andover District Schools Cup. After an unconvincing first half display, the side went in to the break 1-0 down.
A highly motivated and passionate team performance saw Elliot Smith score a fine individual equaliser with just 15 minutes to go. The team held up and delivered an impeccable second half performance which saw the game finish at 1-1. The cup fixture had to be settled so the match went in to extra time, an acrobatic display from goalkeeper Jed Trengove alongside some superb defending from Keaton Harris, Frankie Fisher and Casey Mellor kept the scores level and the game went through to a penalty shoot out.
