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. With the aim of encouraging future STEM careers and an opportunity to put the arts and creativity back into design, the next generation of Harrow Way designer and engineers spent an exciting day with Stannah’s experienced and season professionals.

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. The prize to aim for was the possibility of work experience at Stannah for the winners and discussions about future STEM careers with current Stannah employees and their various roles within the company.

Andover 215 Project

November 9th, 2018 Comments off

Harrow Way Art Department have been busy over the last couple of weeks decorating wooden cut-outs of WW1 soldiers for the Andover 215 Project. The project is in remembrance of the 215 men from Andover who lost their lives in the First World War. The pieces will be displayed in Vigo Recreational Ground on Saturday 10th November between midday and 2.00pm. These figures will then be the centrepiece of an emotional art piece in the evening between 5pm and 7pm.

Nine of our ten soldiers were decorated by Year 7 students and one by Year 9 students. Year 7 & 8 students have been busy creating poppies during art lessons, which are on display in the English Block Foyer.

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.

Harrow Way Lay Career Foundations with Construction Trip

October 29th, 2018 Comments off

Harrow Way continue to push careers to the top of the agenda with a recent trip to Foreman Homes and VIVID to give students an insight into the construction industry. The Year 10 students were given behind the scenes access to the construction site in Charlton where the region’s largest private home builder and Hampshire’s largest provider of affordable homes are building the Peake Meadow development.

The trip was led by Year 10 Progress Leader David Cade who said: “Without the opportunity to explore in-depth the career potential of an industry it is very easy to miss the possibilities. Yet, as our students discovered, the career opportunities in the building sector go way beyond the professional construction trades. With the construction industry currently experiencing a boom there is huge potential for students to experience a rewarding and fulfilling career.” Read more…
