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

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

Physical Education

What is PE?

The physical education curriculum at Harris Academy Wimbledon will inspire all students to succeed in both competitive and physically demanding activities. The curriculum is designed to stretch and challenge all students to achieve their personal best, both physically and mentally. Through the curriculum, students will develop a true love of physical exercise which will encourage lifelong participation and the potential to improve mental health and wellbeing.

Why do we teach PE at HAWI?

PE and sport at Harris Wimbledon has an integral role in developing well rounded individuals through; lessons, inter/intra competitions, enrichment and external sporting opportunities. Offering a wide range of sporting opportunities is crucial to the development of resilience, confidence, competence and leadership all of which are good characteristics that support a successful and fulfilling life. Pressurised situations provide an opportunity for students to develop skills learnt and apply them in a realistic sporting scenario, which will further develop the student’s ability to perform under pressure which is a great life skill.

How do we teach PE at HAWI?

PE at Harris Academy Wimbledon has a different focus each academic year. Each year builds upon the previous, creating a physically literate person across a range of sports. This will enable students to find ‘their’ sports, that they feel confident in continuing outside of school and to an even higher level of excellence.

Year 7- Development of fundamental movement skills and beginning to apply them to small isolated and game related activities.

Year 8- Refining fundamental movement skills and developing and understand how these skills link together to be able to perform in competitive game situations.

Year 9- Further develop the understanding of match play, through teaching strategies, rules, passages of play. Students will critically analyse and plan small teaching sessions to develop their ability to lead, umpire and teach.

Year 10- Within core PE the curriculum will focus on the importance of a healthy active lifestyle. To ensure students understand the importance they will gain the opportunity to choose from an extensive list of sports, to which they can apply previously learnt fundamental movement skills and transfer the skills to participate in new sporting scenarios.

Year 11- Greater focus is placed on the physical, mental and social benefits of sport, alongside the importance of a good nutritious diet. Students will have the opportunity to choose what sport they would like to participate in, on a half termly basis. This will establish an independent element toward sport and exercise, which will set the students in good stead for life-long participation in sport.

How do we make PE memorable at HAWI?

The extensive extracurricular programme provides all students, including those from less advantaged backgrounds, the opportunity to take part in further coaching and sport focussed coaching. This extra provision enables students to access opportunities which could inspire students to participate in a variety of sports and exercise after their time with Harris Academy Wimbledon. The PE curriculum is in place as the stimulus to grow a passion for sport. Students may wish to pursue their passions further through school clubs, which are well linked to local clubs. In addition we host an abundance of sporting house competitions and external fixtures, culminating in our annual sports day which all students take part either as a participant or sport leaders.
