Author Catherine Bruton's virtual visit went down a storm with our students who asked lots of excellent questions. Catherine was wonderful and so engaging. We could not have had a better start to our World Book Day. Happy WBD!


Proud that so many of our Year 9 students are getting their tests - ready for the return to school next week!


Don’t throw the box away! Students in Year 9 were challenged with making a desk tidy/holder made out of corrugated cardboard. Pop art was the given theme to be inspired from. We will always encourage students to follow the 6 R’s (Recycle, Reuse, Reduce, Repair, Rethink, Refuse).

We are so excited about tomorrow's World Book Day special event, a virtual visit from author Catherine Bruton! All Y7 and Y8 students will take part and be treated to a reading from her two latest books and have an opportunity to ask her questions.


Yesterday, we were lucky enough to have a lighting designer and technician help us install theatre lights into our Drama Studio. We can’t wait to have you back in creating different atmosphere.

HAWI Science Week 8th-12th March - Science week is a celebration of Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths. We have organised a fantastic week of fun activities to encourage all students to engage with science beyond the curriculum.


Just a reminder we are closed tomorrow (Friday 12th February) for INSET day and will reopen after half term on Monday 22nd February. Have a relaxing half term.


Following on from the leftover challenge last week; students were also encouraged to design a menu which teaches others how to make the most out of leftover food found in the fridge, cupboard or freezer.


Although the snow has been falling this week, our pupils’ creativity and enthusiasm certainly has not! Congratulations to Sara, Chase and Peter who made the most of their off-screen challenge time in Art and captured these brilliant photographs.

Extra-Curricular Activities

We believe that academic success should go hand-in-hand with a rich
variety of extra-curricular activities. Wherever there is demand for a club or activity, we will always try to find a way to make it happen.

Extra-curricular activities will help foster a spirit of aspiration, resilience and joy in learning. We will encourage all students to participate in our extensive extra-curricular programme, including lunchtime and after school clubs, leadership opportunities, fundraising for charity, cultural and educational visits and residential trips at home and abroad.

Well done to the players who have committed to the training and we have seen a great improvement in play and working as a team. They need to continue these efforts to have every success when we return to fixtures. A reminder that those who would like to play on the school teams, need to attend training.

There has been impressive attendance to year 9 Tennis club so far this year, with 20+ students attending! There is a mixture of playing experiences, with some attending the club for the first time and those who have been developing their shots and skills over the 3 years at Harris Wimbledon and can now play great match play points.

Year 8 Tennis 
The group of players who attended this club last Friday had great focus and a desire to improve. Especially as this year group missed their unit of tennis during the lock down period, the standard was brilliant and with commitment through the year, they have the talent and potential to play great tennis.
