50th Anniversary Tree Planted

December 7th, 2018 Comments off

As part of the National Tree Week celebrations we have planted a Wild Cherry at the front of school. The tree was part of a bid from the tree council and we were fortunate to be able to find a rain free window in which to plant it. The students who have been instrumental in the work of the school around the environment, working with Andover Trees and as United Nations Plant for the Planet Ambassadors were the students who took responsibility for safely planting the tree. The students wanted to thank Wendy Davis from Andover Trees United who has supported the students with their plans and work throughout the last few years and continues to work with them weekly. Mr Badby, our site manager is also a crucial part of the work with the trees around the school site, and he was again on hand to help. The group plan to replace and replant up to 50 trees around the site before Christmas to develop our lovely school site further for everyone’s benefit.

Year 7 Girls Football – Match Report

November 22nd, 2018 Comments off

The year 7 girls football team played only their second full-sided match of the year, in terrible weather, against St Edmunds in Salisbury on Wednesday 21st November.

With boundless energy and enthusiasm, the girls worked hard and produced some excellent attacking opportunities. Daisy and captain, Jisa, created excellent spaces on the wings, attacking at speed when they received the ball. Annabelle was solid in defence, working with Carys, Lily and Evelyn to prevent scoring opportunities. Player of the match Libby changed from striker to goalkeeper in the second half, producing some fine saves. A final result of a 7-0 loss does not credit the hard work and positive attitude of the team.

Team: Libby, Jisa, Luana, Carys, Lily, Amelie, Ysobel, Evelyn, Olivia, Daisy, Annabelle.

Harrow Way Green Meets Stannah Grey

November 13th, 2018 Comments off

Celebrating its 151st year with the launch of the Joseph Stannah Foundation, Stannah hosted their own ‘Green meets Grey’ STEM day recently.

Year 10 students from Harrow Way and three other local secondary schools were all invited to an ‘Apprentice style’ day. Working in mixed teams, overseen by a Stannah employee and mentor, the brief was to design a stair lift for a person with a specific disability before presenting their ideas to a team of judges from Stannah.

Strong Victory for the U16 girls in the Football County Cup

November 9th, 2018 Comments off

Harrow Way 4, Romsey School 0

The Under 16’s girls had a comfortable win against Romsey School on Wednesday in the first round of the County Cup. Harrow Way had the majority of the possession and went into half time 1-0 up through a slick cross into the box by Sky slotted in by Katie.

The defence of Chloe, Amelia, Lucy and Tumi, along with mids Paris and Jasmine were solid, preventing any kind of attack from developing, leaving keeper Ruby with little to do. Three goals in the second half secured the well-deserved victory.

The first came via a corner. Amelia’s volley was saved by the keeper but came back out to Sky who struck it into the top right hand corner. To make it 3-0, Shannon scored from a wonderful strike from the top of the box. The final goal was a great team effort, finished by Anita from the 8 yards out.
