Academy Life

2 February 2024Newsletter 2/02/2024  We were delighted to welcome best selling author Manjeet Mann on Thursday and on the 4th March we look forward to welcoming Anthony McGowan, author of Lark and winner of the 2020 Carnegie Medal.  Evidence suggests that there is a positive relationship between reading frequency, reading enjoyment and how well students achieve at school.  Our library has over four and a half  thousands books and is open every day at breaktime, lunch time and after school.  Please encourage your child to go and see our very knowledgeable librarian, Ms Angely, if they would like any help choosing a book.  Year 7 have their re-arranged theatre trip on Monday and a reminder that all Year 11 need to be in school on the inset day on Friday.  Students in the Lower School are looking forward to the disco on Thursday.  I was delighted to attend the parents’ association (WPA)  meeting last night.  I’d like to thank them for being so generous with their time and for providing opportunities for the whole community; I’d also like to thank you for supporting the events.  Due to this excellent support, the WPA are going to make a donation of £2,000 to the school for some more equipment for the playground.  The next big event is our annual Community Quiz Night on the 7th March – please save the date. This half term has flown by with just one week left.  Please can I encourage full attendance for the whole week. Best wishes, Mrs Larizadeh     https://0e58658be539ee7325a0-220f04f871df648cf4a4d93a111e3366.ssl.cf3.rackcdn.com/harris_secondary_wimbledon/uploads/document/Newsletter-02.02.24-7.pdf
31 January 2024Newsletter 15/12/2023This is the last newsletter of the Autumn Term and as we enter the last week, it will be full of festive experiences:  The Winter Celebration, Christmas Lunch, Festive Christmas jumper day, Secret Santa and our annual decorate the door competition.  I have been delighted with the amazing contributions students have made throughout the term including Year 10s supporting Year 7s with their reading,  everyone getting involved with House competitions,  visits to the theatre and London museums, Year 11 trip to Box Hill, Year 12s leading the way and being excellent role models, a fantastic Cultural Evening, the brilliant house trips, representing the academy in many different sports fixtures and much more! I would like to thank the staff who always go above and beyond to provide all these fantastic opportunities.  Students have also done a lot of work as well!  Particular congratulations to Year 11 who have just finished a week of mock exams (just 2.5 more days to go!).  They should enjoy a well-deserved rest for most of the holiday but pick their books back up a few days before we return.   As ever, I am very grateful for all your support for the academy and wish you happiness over the holidays.  Until then, we have three and a half school days to go and it is important that students attend every day until the end of the school term.  Best wishes, Mrs Larizadeh https://0e58658be539ee7325a0-220f04f871df648cf4a4d93a111e3366.ssl.cf3.rackcdn.com/harris_secondary_wimbledon/uploads/document/Newsletter-15.12.2023-5.pdf
8 September 2023Newsletter 08/09/23Welcome to another school year! The year has started very well with an excellent set of GCSE results; we are so proud of the Year 11 pupils who outperformed their target grades despite the significant interruption to their education through Covid. We are equally delighted to welcome so many of them back to HAWI6 - our brand new 6th form provision. It is a delight to welcome all our new families to the HAWI Community and we look forward to meeting you during the course of the year. There are two very important evenings in September: Year 12 Information Evening for parents on Thursday 14th September and a Year 7 Curriculum Evening on Thursday 28th September both at 6.30pm. Please save the dates and staff will be in touch with further information. I am very much looking forward to another brilliant year and as ever the staff have been planning many wonderful opportunities for the students. In assembly this week, I shared a quote from the Lionesses’ goal keeper, Mary Earps from when she collected her trophy for the best FIFA goalkeeper’s award: ‘Keep going, you can achieve anything you set your mind to. There’s only one of you in the world, and that’s more than enough. Be unapologetically yourself.’ We look forward to celebrating the individuality of every student during this new year. Best wishes for a sunny weekend, Mrs Larizadeh https://0e58658be539ee7325a0-220f04f871df648cf4a4d93a111e3366.ssl.cf3.rackcdn.com/harris_secondary_wimbledon/uploads/document/Newsletter-08.09.23.pdf
14 July 2023Newsletter 14/07/23This is the last edition of the newsletter for this academic year. As I sit and write this, I am reflecting on what has really been an outstanding year for the Academy. We will complete our fifth academic year next week and I think it has probably been the best! The students’ outstanding commitment to their learning in the classroom was recognised by Ofsted in January and has only gone from strength to strength since then. Five years of learning culminated in our first cohort taking their GCSE exams, which they approached with maturity, diligence and excellent preparation. But of course, learning inside the classroom has been matched by enthusiasm, resilience and independence outside the classroom. The newsletter is packed with photographs from our outdoor activity week and there are so many other highlights from the last year - if you glance back at all the newsletters you will see that we have done over 60 different trips and had over 100 different extracurricular opportunities during the year. We live and breathe our motto ‘make a difference’ and our sense of community is really what makes us special – still cheering and supporting each other in the rain today at sports day! Pastoral care is always at the heart of what we do and I am delighted to let you know that we will be adding to this team in September with new Heads of Year for all year groups alongside our Directors of Upper and Lower school. As we enter our final week and look to next academic year, we have plenty to look forward to. The main centre piece of this will be opening HAWI6, our new sixth form but we will continue to ensure we remain at the forefront of providing an outstanding education for all. We will welcome new students and staff and will work together to ‘make a difference’ to our own lives and everyone else around us. I would like to say thank you for all your support and wish you and all your families a restful and enjoyable summer. With my very best wishes, Mrs Larizadeh https://0e58658be539ee7325a0-220f04f871df648cf4a4d93a111e3366.ssl.cf3.rackcdn.com/harris_secondary_wimbledon/uploads/document/Newsletter-14.07.23.pdf
