October 21st, 2019 Comments off

The Year 7 football team played Rookwood School in a high quality game where both teams played some very nice passing football and created many chances. Zach Strudwick slotted away a good shot to put Harrow Way one goal up, however Rookwood equalised soon after. The second half was end to end football but with 2 minutes to go Kyle Brooker scored our winner. Well done to all players for a great performance.

Year 5 and 6 Cluster Indoor Athletics Competition

October 21st, 2019 Comments off

Harrow Way hosted the first Primary Cluster event of the year and what a lovely afternoon was had by all. We started with all the competitors participating in the eight field events that included indoor javelin, long jump, chest throws and the performances were fantastic. The afternoon then moved onto the rebound board running events that culminated in the Team Relay event that is always the most cherished and loudest win of the event!

The eventual winners were Portway Junior School and congratulations to them! All the children worked really hard throughout the afternoon and were a credit to their schools. Effort and enjoyment of sport was the key and a big thank you to all competitors, teachers and the wonderful Sports Leaders from Harrow Way, without whom the event could not run.

October 9th, 2019 Comments off

Harrow Way Year 10 students were given an insight into the role STEM plays in defence with a Cyber Challenge Day at the British Army’s Blandford camp. Competing against a number of other schools, the team of eight won the challenge as they pitted their wits to solve numerous tasks in a fully immersive, AI (artificial intelligence) powered, multi-player online security training and assessment platform.

Commenting on the value of attending the awareness and engagement event Donna Robertson, Curriculum Leader of IT, Computing and Business Studies said: “It is important for students to appreciate the scale of opportunity there is available to them should they choose to consider a career in one of the STEM industries. This hands-on experience has opened their eyes on a number of levels – opportunities within the Army, within engineering and within cybersecurity. It’s been a brilliant interactive day and it was great to see our students working as a cohesive team, sharing their skill base which saw them come out as overall winners.” Read more…
