Under 13’s Cricket Success

July 14th, 2017 Comments off

On a lovely Summers evening the under 13’s cricket team played their semi-final of the District Cup. Harrow Way scored 118 from 14 overs with Josh Banks Williams and Will McDermott both scoring well and eventually hitting the enforced retirement score of 30. Wellington Academy made a brave effort in their innings but 3 wickets from James McDermott and 2 from Alex Pardy (in two balls) won us the game. Well done to the whole team for solid fielding and batting displays. We are due to play John Hanson in the final next week.

A Golden Celebration to Mark Harrow Way’s 50th Anniversary

July 14th, 2017 Comments off

Harrow Way rounded off their 50th anniversary year in style with a hugely successful fete at the weekend with hundreds of former students, teachers and members of the local community enjoying a wonderful afternoon of reminiscing and a trip or two down memory lane. Joining the many students from the 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s and beyond were four of the school’s headteachers and as many as 40 former members of staff.

Commenting on the 50th celebrations headteacher Michael Serridge said: “In September 2016 we looked at what we could do to mark our 50th anniversary, coming up with a number of exciting ideas such as this fete, a coffee morning, a 1960s day for the students alongside a commemorative newsletter and wall graphic. Everyone within the school is enjoying the celebrations and it has been great to meet and hear the many stories about the school and the difference in ‘education’ from past students, teachers and headteachers”.
