May 24th, 2021 Comments off

Former Harrow Way head boy Mark Todd returned to the school this week having successfully completing his Masters degree at the University of Oxford. Mark, who studied physics at the UK’s top university, visited the school to meet Headteacher Michael Serridge and current students.

Commenting about his time at Harrow Way and how it helped him forge a successful path to Oxford he said: “One thing I really liked about Harrow Way was the amount of subject choice we were given.

Two of their presenters, both recently graduated from university, joined the Year 10 students to deliver Study Sensai and Student Elevation.

They need to know how to structure their notes, improve their memory, how to learn independently and use practice papers effectively. These skills are vital for effective GCSE preparation and were all incorporated into the Study Sensai session.
