On Thursday 1st December, Harrow Way Year 8 boys football team travelled to John Hanson. This was a must win game for both sides but early on John Hanson were strong up front scoring from a volley early on. This was followed closely by another goal from John Hanson after a great one-two.
Harrow Way were two nil down at half time but determined to get back into the match. The second half was a great battle with Harrow Way goalkeeper, Finn Belbin, making some excellent saves. Good pressure from Harrow Way forced John Hanson to make a mistake and give away a corner. This resulted in a goal from Mason Ardron on the goal line.
Despite fighting hard, Harrow Way were unable to equalise, so the final result ended up 2-1 to John Hanson.

50 Year 7 students went on the ‘Warner Bros. Studio Tour: The Making of Harry Potter’ on Monday 21st November.
The aim of the trip was to give students an exciting introduction to the world of English and Media. The students were be able to explore some of the original sets used in the Harry Potter films, as well as getting up close with the original costumes and props from the film series. Through gaining an insight into the process by which J.K. Rowling’s magical vision was brought to the screen, we hope students will be inspired to read the book series, and to appreciate the hard work and talent that goes into producing blockbuster films. The trip is also an excellent grounding for when Year 7 study the Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone this year in English.
Harrow Way Year 10 History students have been learning about crime and punishment in the Middles Ages from one of the UK’s top supplier of professional heritage services, Cotswolds Archaeology. With a Saxon burial ground found close to Harrow Way earlier this year the focus of the talk was the discovery at the new Aldi site and the relevance this has to the students’ current studies.
Archaeologist Jez Clutterbuck explained how the 124 skeletons were found, sharing some powerful images of skeletons with their hands tied behind their backs, skeletons without limbs and even one or two random heads without their bodies. The students were fascinated to hear about the positioning of the bodies with some found as expected for a normal grave site of that time, lined up evenly in rows next to each other. However, the majority of bodies found were simply discarded on top of each other, haphazardly placed. Read more…
