Applause for the Student Leadership Team

December 1st, 2020 Comments off

Harrow Way’s Student Leadership Team has received high praise for their work in supporting students through the lockdown. The team, which is comprised of the school’s head girl, deputy and other senior prefects, received their commendation from Headteacher Michael Serridge recently.

Recognising that the period of lockdown presented a number of challenges, Harrow Way’s Student Leadership Team stepped forward to lead the production of a series of videos. Every week during the lockdown the team of six students created a new video for the whole school community to watch. The focus for each video was different with the students tackling a range of subjects from challenging racism to protecting mental health. Read more…

Dress Down Day – Thursday 10th December

November 30th, 2020 Comments off

Thursday 10th December would have been the date for our annual Christmas Fair which is normally a brilliant, fun event that also raises funds for charity. As this cannot take place this year due to current restrictions we would still like to mark the day with a dress down day to raise donations for the Andover Food Bank. If students have PE/Dance on the 10th then you can still ‘dress down’ but must wear your own appropriate sportswear.

We would like to ask families to make a small donation of a food item in exchange for students wearing their own clothes that day. Donations should be in date and unopened/sealed and should preferably be worth in the region of £1 as this is our usual dress down donation. These will be collated and boxed in school before being dropped off at the Food Bank.

So that we are able to donate a variety of goods, can I please ask that each year group donates something from the designated themes for each year group.

YEAR 7: ‘Roast Dinner’ – eg Tinned Meat, Tinned Veg, Gravy Granules
YEAR 8: ‘Condiments’ – eg Jams, Pickles, and Chutneys
YEAR 9: ‘Snacks’ – eg Biscuits, Crackers and Crisps
YEAR 10: ‘Dessert’ – eg Desserts and Cooking Sauces
YEAR 11: ‘Naughty but Nice’ – eg Sweets and Chocolate

KS4 Presentation Evening 2020

November 19th, 2020 Comments off

Normally, at this time, we would be writing to our outgoing Year 11 students to confirm the plans for an upcoming GCSE Presentation Evening. However, despite our optimism around being able to host the event, current government guidance on COVID-19 related to social distancing and the size of gatherings permitted, means that we will sadly be unable to do so as planned. However, we would still like to offer our students an opportunity to mark their results and achievements, so we produced these Presentation Booklets.

We celebrate student successes by awarding individual subject awards and presentation of annual trophy awards. These are outlined in the following booklets:

KS4 Presentation 2020 – Subject Awards

Reopening of our School from September 2020 (Update 2)

August 26th, 2020 Comments off

Dear Parents and Carers

Introduction

I would like to start by saying that we are looking forward to seeing all our students return to school at the start of September and, in particular, meeting our new Year 7s in person for the first time. I hope over the last few months, despite the challenges we have all faced, families have been able to spend some quality time together and have enjoyed something of a summer break.

This September we are very excited to be fully reopening and welcoming all of our pupils back to school, it seems such a long time since we were all together at Harrow Way. Our school has been welcoming students in Year 10 back to school since June. We approached this with great caution, reviewing all the scientific advice to ensure that we could be as safe as possible. This has gone extremely well, as our safety measures and risk assessments were excellent. 

The Government has stated: ‘Given the improved position, the balance of risk is now overwhelmingly in favour of children returning to school. For the vast majority of children, the benefits of being back in school far outweigh the very low risk from coronavirus (COVID-19)’. Read more…
