July 9th, 2019 Comments off

Harrow Way’s star rugby player Mikey Summerfield is making a bid for an international place with the Irish national rugby team. The Year 11 student attended three countrywide trials to make the final squad for the Irish Exiles, a team which specifically identifies and develops potential Irish players in England, Scotland and Wales. Mikey will tour with the exiles, playing three matches for the team during August.

Mikey has been an avid and committed rugby player since he was eight years old training every week with Andover Rugby Club. As well as initially playing for Harrow Way he was selected by professional club London Irish to join their Developing Player Programme (DPP) when he was in Year 8. Selected from across Berkshire, Hampshire and Middlesex Mikey trained twice a week with the club progressing from their bronze scheme through to the Gold AASE scheme – Achieving Academic and Sporting Excellence, which is targeted at talented 16 to 18 year old students who have the aspirations and potential to play at the elite end of the game.

June 7th, 2019 Comments off

On a lovely Summer’s day at St Cross Cricket Club the best under 15 cricket teams met for a days competition. All teams showed some great cricket skills and it was played in a competitive but sporting manner.

Harrow Way played four 8 over games and won against Perrins and Applemore College. All Harrow Way players performed very well but special mention has to be made to Oliver Banks Williams for playing for an age group up and opening the batting all day, James Pay for a great bowling spell where he was on a hat-trick, and Neo ‘Boycott’ Black for hitting his first ever six for the school.

Year 11 Last Football Match Ends in Defeat

April 5th, 2019 Comments off

On Wednesday 3rd April, the so called “Class of 2019” had their final football fixture of their time at HWCS versus Test Valley. With performances in the district league tapering off since the beginning of the season, HW saw themselves with the chance to capture second position in the league or slip to fifth.

In the tight opening exchanges, both teams had chances. Top scorer Elliot Smith was put through the TV defence frequently and Goalkeeper, Jed Trengove, was tested early on seeing one attempt smash off his bar before TV finally broke the deadlock. Smith rolled his equaliser in before TV scored again on the break. The teams went in at 1-2, HW with work to do to end on a high.

Captain James Potter rallied the troops at the break but sadly it was HW who conceded again. At 1-3 down HW then lost Smith and replaced him upfront with talisman Kial Mumford. Mumford was industrious in the final stages and scored two goals to level things up going into the final minutes. With legs tired TV broke the HW defence late on, Alex Enright called up for a foul in the box and a penalty was given, 3-4, a well converted spot kick. Straight from the restart TV gained yards again and the game was up when Trengove was left three versus one at the back, saving the first attempt he could do little with the eventual goal. A 5-3 loss, excitement, drama and intrigue, eventually coming up short.

KS1 Cluster – TRIGolf Festival

March 28th, 2019 Comments off

On Tuesday 26th March, Harrow Way hosted the Cluster KS1 TRIGolf festival. This brought together nearly fifty children from the Harrow Way Cluster group to try their hand at some challenging and fun new skills. We saw children chip and putt their way around a circuit of challenges in attempt to score the most points before the buzzer, helped as always by Harrow Way’s exceptional Sports Leaders. Appleshaw eventually picked up the win but fun was the order of the day and the children left with big smiles and a new set of skills. A big thank you to all our participants and our Leaders.

Primary Town Football Tournament

March 22nd, 2019 Comments off

On Thursday 21st March. Harrow Way hosted the Primary Town Football tournament. This involved sixteen teams across two rounds of competition and over one hundred and fifty budding footballers. With competition at an all time high and Balksbury not willing to release their grip on the Cup every team fared well in the preliminary rounds with goal scoring kept low throughout.

Once teams hit their stride in the knock out phase the keepers were made to work hard and the finishing was of an exceptionally high level. A special mention to Portway C who collected the Fair Play Award for sporting behaviour during the first rounds. The eventual winners of the Plate competition were Balksbury B and the eventual Champions of the Cup competition were Anton A. A huge congratulations to our winners and a fantastic effort from all other teams.
