Talal in Year 10 has created a clay vessel inspired by the natural form of a pineapple! The department can't wait to see what glazes and paints he will add once the pot has been fired in the kiln. Amazing work Talal! https://t.co/6km55b27fv

A big thank you to the wonderful Michael Mann for a really enjoyable afternoon. Our Y7 students were so inspired by the talk and had millions of questions about "Ghostcloud" and being an author. https://t.co/GqllCLn7HT

Here is an epic thriller which will also enhance your understanding of physics. Set in Peckham, we experience gang feuds and time travel with our hero Esso. A seriously good book which is soon to be a major Netflix movie. Recommended to our Y9 and Y10 students! https://t.co/bKmA4BAQgH

Welcome from the Principal: Mrs J Larizadeh

Thank you for taking the time to learn more about Harris Academy Wimbledon.  We are a co-educational secondary academy set up to provide an excellent education for children in Wimbledon. We opened our doors in 2018 and in November 2020 moved into our brand-new building with our first three year groups. We will grow year on year, eventually serving children ages 11-18.

Academy Life

1 April 2022Newsletter 01/04/22Here at HAWI, we strive to help students find their passions whether it is in sport, the arts, writing a rap, creating a science experiment, debating a topical theme, attending Spanish club or being a house leader.  I feel very proud of all the students as they find their interests and develop their confidence while doing things they enjoy.  The deep learning days this week have been particularly varied and exciting - Breis, a Nigerian rap artist inspiring Year 8, Year 7 enjoying the Natural History Museum while Year 9 were next door at the Science Museum.  Year 10 visited London Docklands, delved deeper in to History or created a culinary delight in Spanish. Overall, this term has been jam packed with opportunities including ice skating, bowling, trampolining, author visits, the Lower School Disco, Theatre trips, World book Day, Science Week, an amazing production of Hairspray and still there has been more! It has also been important for us to celebrate Equality, Diversity and Inclusiveness, and we are proud of our student designed flag and badges and the money families have raised for charity.  Students flourish and grow everyday as they continue to develop their independence, integrity and resilience and make a difference in the academy and wider community. Thank you for all your support this term.  I hope you have a relaxing and enjoyable break. Happy Easter and best wishes, Mrs Larizadeh https://0e58658be539ee7325a0-220f04f871df648cf4a4d93a111e3366.ssl.cf3.rackcdn.com/harris_secondary_wimbledon/uploads/document/010422-Newsletter.pdf
11 March 2022Newsletter 11/03/2022Thank you to all the families who have donated very generously to our collection for Ukraine.  The first batch of items have been picked up but we will have a second collection so please send in any further donations. We continue to support the students and work together to raise funds and make donations.  We will be participating in red nose day on Friday and the money raised for comic relief is used to help people live free from poverty, violence and discrimination.  This includes funding organisations that are supporting people right now in Ukraine, and those attempting to cross the border.    There is also much to celebrate this week in the academy.  The WPA quiz was a huge success and we hope this will be the first of many social activities for students, parents, carers and teachers.  I’d like to thank the committee who worked tirelessly to write questions, buy refreshments, organise raffle prizes and much more… thank you! We launch Science week on Monday and as ever the Science department is putting on a range of different activities to develop our interest in Science.  Please encourage you child to go to one of the lunch time sessions. We also have our production of Hairspray this week; it is looking and sounding fantastic.  It would be great to see you there! Have a lovely weekend, Mrs Larizadeh https://0e58658be539ee7325a0-220f04f871df648cf4a4d93a111e3366.ssl.cf3.rackcdn.com/harris_secondary_wimbledon/uploads/document/110322-Newsletter.pdf                  
14 January 2022Newsletter 14/01/2022It has been a beautiful, bright winter’s day today and ends what has been an excellent week.  The students have completed their first full week after the holidays and it has been delightful to see them have fun with their friends and enjoy being back at school.  In the Autumn term, we had a house competition to help us develop a new logo for the academy to represent all of the excellent work students and staff are doing to celebrate diversity. We want the logo to be a visual statement of our commitment to diversity.  There were four key strands that came out of the students ideas: Range of colours with green, black and yellow included, a handshake, the words diversity and proud, and links with the HAWI logo.   I am meeting the student equality and diversity committee on Friday where they will make the final decision on the logo. The WPA committee had an excellent meeting this week and they are busy organising a second hand uniform sale and a quiz night for later this term.  I’d like to thank them for their time in organising these opportunities, and I hope you are able to come to the quiz night.  There are some more details in the newsletter from the committee and the information about the quiz night will come out next week. As ever, thank you for your ongoing support. Have a restful weekend, Mrs Larizadeh https://0e58658be539ee7325a0-220f04f871df648cf4a4d93a111e3366.ssl.cf3.rackcdn.com/harris_secondary_wimbledon/uploads/document/140122-Newsletter.pdf  
10 December 2021Newsletter 10/12/2021The festive spirit is wonderful to see this week.  Staff have reported that Year 7 and 8 had a great time at the theatre yesterday and really enjoyed the shows.  Year 9 had a very productive careers day; they had an assembly exploring pathways and took part in workshops led by National Grid and the Army, culminating in a Dragon’s Den style show. Year 10 spent the day working on their Science Required Practicals.  During the course of the day, students investigated how to calculate density, made some beautiful copper sulphate crystals and investigated how water enters and leaves plant cells.  It is fantastic to see so many students wearing festive dress today and contributing to two very important charities:  Save the Children and The Trussell Trust. We are really looking forward to The Winter Celebration on Monday and Tuesday.  I am sorry that we have had to restrict numbers for the evening, but I know that you understand that we must ensure we keep minimising the risk of anyone catching Covid-19.  We will film one of the evenings and place a link on the website by the end of term. Everyone attending will be required to show evidence of a negative lateral flow test taken within the last 24 hours.  On that note, you will have seen from the media that cases are increasing so it is vital that the whole school community continues to test every Sunday and Wednesday evening.  If you child has any symptoms of Covid-19, a continuous cough, high temperature or a loss of taste/smell, please do not send them to school until they have had a negative PCR test result.    I am delighted to announce that we will have a new uniform company (Stevensons)  from the 1st January which I hope will be more efficient than Brigade!  We have gone through a competitive tendering process to ensure that the uniform is of best value, and the company have a shop in addition to an online ordering system.  In consultation with the student council, we have made a few changes to the uniform including a skirt for the girls without the split and an improved PE kit.  There isn’t any obligation to buy any of the new items until your child grows out of their current one.  Miss Pocock will send you a separate letter next week containing all of the information. Have a great weekend, Mrs Larizadeh https://0e58658be539ee7325a0-220f04f871df648cf4a4d93a111e3366.ssl.cf3.rackcdn.com/harris_secondary_wimbledon/uploads/document/101221-Newsletter.pdf
