January 15th, 2019 Comments off

Italy’s beautiful Bay of Naples provided the perfect backdrop for a Harrow Way school Geography trip. Students from Years 10-11 experienced first-hand the geographical impact on land and people as they enjoyed four days in the bay, famous for its rugged coastline, archaeological riches, the mighty Vesuvius volcano and the lost city of Pompeii.

Rebecca Calder, Curriculum Leader, Geography/Humanities said: “This area of Italy is rich in wonderful examples of Geography in action! This was an invaluable experience for students to see geographical processes, landforms and how people of the region prepare for natural hazards. We are also always very keen at Harrow Way to provide students with opportunities which enable them to try something new, to enjoy foreign travel, appreciate a foreign country’s heritage, sights and culture.

KS3 Girls Indoor Football Tournament

December 13th, 2018 Comments off

Harrow Way hosted a very successful girls indoor football tournament on Wednesday 12th December, with 8 teams from 5 schools taking part. With the competition split into 2 pools, each team were to play 3 games, with the winner from both pools playing a final.

‘Harrow Way 2′ was a completely Year 7 team, and they played fantastically well, with 3 close fought games, only going down 1-0, 1-0 and 2-0.’Harrow Way 1’ only had 2 out of their 5 players from Year 8, but were superb, finishing an unbeaten joint 1st from their pool.

A 2 minute golden goal game against Winton to decide who was going into the final was played, with Faith slotting in a goal with just seconds left. The final against John Hanson 1 was much the same, with the score remaining 0-0 through the duration and into extra time. A sudden death penalty shoot out determined the result, with Harrow Way narrowly missing out on overall victory.

An excellent tournament, all girls played superbly, and looking forward to the rematch tournament in the New Year.

50th Anniversary Tree Planted

December 7th, 2018 Comments off

As part of the National Tree Week celebrations we have planted a Wild Cherry at the front of school. The tree was part of a bid from the tree council and we were fortunate to be able to find a rain free window in which to plant it. The students who have been instrumental in the work of the school around the environment, working with Andover Trees and as United Nations Plant for the Planet Ambassadors were the students who took responsibility for safely planting the tree. The students wanted to thank Wendy Davis from Andover Trees United who has supported the students with their plans and work throughout the last few years and continues to work with them weekly. Mr Badby, our site manager is also a crucial part of the work with the trees around the school site, and he was again on hand to help. The group plan to replace and replant up to 50 trees around the site before Christmas to develop our lovely school site further for everyone’s benefit.
