Primary Town Football Tournament

March 22nd, 2019 Comments off

On Thursday 21st March. Harrow Way hosted the Primary Town Football tournament. This involved sixteen teams across two rounds of competition and over one hundred and fifty budding footballers. With competition at an all time high and Balksbury not willing to release their grip on the Cup every team fared well in the preliminary rounds with goal scoring kept low throughout.

Once teams hit their stride in the knock out phase the keepers were made to work hard and the finishing was of an exceptionally high level. A special mention to Portway C who collected the Fair Play Award for sporting behaviour during the first rounds. The eventual winners of the Plate competition were Balksbury B and the eventual Champions of the Cup competition were Anton A. A huge congratulations to our winners and a fantastic effort from all other teams.

Jez Rolfe, Year 10 Lily Beetles, Year 9
In January, Photography Students were set the challenge to take photographs for a live competition run by the Rotary Club. Students were required to take a portfolio of 3 images responding to the theme ‘The Beauty of Nature’. There were over 100 entries from year 9 and 10 students and even more from schools across the country. I’m pleased to say both Jez Rolfe and Lily Beetles were awarded the position of runner up in each of their age categories. A very well done indeed to Lily and Jez and to everyone else who entered; a fantastic experience for all. I hope you enjoy viewing their photographs as much as we have!

History Lesson Follows in the Footsteps of Jack the Ripper

March 15th, 2019 Comments off

Harrow Way Community School history students were given a grisly taste of London’s historic crime scene during a recent trip to the capital. Year 10 students followed in the footsteps of the serial killer Jack the Ripper, visited the Tower of London, notable for its famous and infamous prisoners, and explored life behind bars at the Clink Prison, which, dating back to 1144 is one of England’s oldest and most notorious prisons.

Commenting on the trip designed to give the students an insight into crime and punishment from 1000AD, Curriculum Leader for History Christina Brown said: “Thankfully London 2019 is very different to London 1144 and indeed the 19th Century when the Ripper was roaming the streets. Equally, the legal and prison system are also very different and visiting these famous locations, giving students a sense of the crimes carried out all those years ago and the means of punishment was captivating for our students and when we manage to do that, we find the learning truly comes alive!” Read more…

KS4 Girls Football Tournament Success

March 6th, 2019 Comments off

Harrow Way’s team, made up of players from Years 9,10 and 11 were victorious in a triangular tournament held at John Hanson on Tuesday 5th March.

The girls won the first game, against John Hanson, 3-0, with Sky scoring early on in the first and second half and Katie scoring the third.

A great result in the final event as a team for these girls.

The Year 9 team played extremely well to qualify from their group with good wins over Test Valley B team and Rookwood to gain a place in the Cup Semi-final. Here they played Test Valley A with the scores tied at half time. The game went into a sudden death play off where Harrow Way eventually sunk the winning points. In the final they played very well with some great ball handling but they eventually lost 7-4 to John Hanson in the final. The games were played in great spirit with fantastic team work from all.

Good Win for Year 10 Rugby Team

March 4th, 2019 Comments off

On a lovely Spring like day, the Year 10 rugby team produced a great performance that showed immense character and team work. Toynbee School scored the only try in the first half to lead into the second. However, a rousing performance built on a dominating scrum and breakdown helped Harrow Way score two tries, one an individual effort from Billy Morledge from our own 22 yard line and the other a powerful line break from Rob Blake. Both were converted well by Max Graham. Final score Harrow Way 14 – Toynbee 12.
