Harrow Way Year 8 students spent the day working with former police officer Dean Coady, OBE about the dangers of knife and street crime. Dean, from Urban Pure Solutions, specialises in delivering innovative, interactive workshops designed to engage and educate young people on street dangers.

Commenting on the session, which proved an eye opener for the young students, Head of Year 8 Victoria Ford said: “With the rise in street crimes across the country, we wanted to ensure that our students are as aware as they can be regarding the dangers of knife and street crime. Dean’s session was incredibly engaging and hopefully students are now much more informed on how to keep themselves safe.”

PiXL Unlock App – Improving Vocabulary

January 31st, 2020 Comments off

This week has seen the launch of a new educational app Unlock to which every student will have access in tutor time once a week as part of our drive to improve students’ literacy skills. In assembly, Mr Mann and Mrs German talked about the importance of having a wide vocabulary. Did you know that the average person uses between 20000-40000 words every day?

Sometimes, we come across new words that have a vague meaning or even different meanings depending on context. We may avoid using new terms to avoid looking foolish. This app teaches words explicitly to overcome this problem. Read more…
