The year 8 football team won through to the Quarter Finals of the County Cup with an impressive 4-3 win against Wyvern School. The lead changed hands on various occasions and we looked comfortable at 3-1 with 10 minutes to go. However, Wyvern kicked into gear and scored two good long range goals. Harrow Way who had looked very dangerous in the break all game then broke away to score the final goal in a very tight game between two excellent teams. Man of the Match was Aston Mussell for another al action performance in centre midfield.
Harrow Way Community School Food Technology students will be growing their own fresh produce, herbs and spices following a generous donation from The Worshipful Company of Glass Sellers of London. The funding of £981.00 will finance the purchase of nine glass garden cloches (low protective structures which act like greenhouses) to be planted up and maintained throughout the year by the Food Technology students and teaching team.
Andy Brockett, Liveryman and Trustee of The Worshipful Company of Glass Sellers of London visited the school this week to present the donation commenting: “Glass is a fundamental part of everyday life but we invariably take it for granted. We are therefore very keen to support projects which stimulate interest in glass in all its aspects as well as the various careers associated with the industry. We look forward to seeing how the students benefit from the glass cloches and how the school build their use into the curriculum”. Read more…
On Friday 14th October, Year 11 Media students attended the Cheltenham Literature Festival. Their morning was spent in a workshop with Deputy Editor of The Times, Emma Tucker and columnist Phil Collins. After learning how the newsroom worked, and a brief visit to the Waterstones tent, they then attended The Times Live debate, listening in as some of the leading Times journalists debated the important issues of the week. It was a fascinating and enjoyable day, with Emma Tucker commenting on how mature and intelligent our students were.
