Harrow Way Community School put its stars of 2022 centre stage recently at their celebrated Presentation Evening. The Class of 2022 were back in force for the annual event which recognises academic endeavour and success, hard work, commitment and personal achievement. Former students joined proud parents, teachers and governors as the school showcased their successes.

Warmly welcoming the students, Headteacher Mr Serridge proudly praised his former Year 11s having seen them overcome the unprecedented challenges that the pandemic years had thrown their way. Commenting on the cohort Mr Serridge said: “We all know that the Class of 2022 students did not have an easy time with their secondary education, with national lockdowns during Years 9 and 10 resulting in lessons being delivered remotely. They were also the first cohort in the last three years to sit the summer season of exams. That did not hold them back, and I could not be prouder of our students who have shown both resilience and a commitment to their studies.”

Special guest speaker for the evening was former Harrow Way student and 2011 Head Boy Daniel Falcone. Daniel, now a freelance host/presenter specialising in e-sports and video games, working for companies such as Amazon, Activision Blizzard and Coca Cola,

gave an enlightening talk and showed an enthusiastic film clip highlighting his career achievements. His presentation had three strong themes: not to be put off by personal disappointments and failures, be prepared to embrace/accept change and to follow a career path that you enjoy.
