A BIG THANK YOU to the BRILLIANT Y9 students who volunteered in the Library as part of their DofE Award. They have processed 100s of books and carried out admin tasks at home while we were in lockdown. The new library would be nowhere near it is today without their help.

Great to see Y7 taking every possible opportunity to revise for the end of year exams. Fantastic effort, keep it up!


Year 9 spent their Deep Learning Day exploring Shakespeare. Starting with a performance and workshop they went on to create their own interpretations of the witches, engage with the more dramatic elements of the play and re-write their own, modern version.


We have had Breis the hip hop artist, writer and entrepreneur visit our school today leading rap and spoken word workshops to our Year 8 students. We had some brilliant performances at the end and we are looking forward to more fun tomorrow.

Library lessons this week involve discussing the Carnegie Medal shortlisted titles, using the cover, blurb and first page as the starting point. Today's class favoured "The Girl Who Speaks Bear", but there's been a wide range of winners across the different classes.


7 Gibson presented an excellent assembly on Caring for the Environment where they shared some facts and some top tips on how we can do better to care for the environment in our own lives.

House Reading Challenge update: Butler took over the lead from Nelson but only just. It is incredibly close at the top of the league and much can change before the next results are announced after the half-term break.


A huge thank you to Jack and Aaliyah from for their inspiring presentation about life at the University of Oxford. Our Philosophers loved hearing from you and can’t wait to apply!

Newsletter 14/05/2021

I hope you are keeping safe and well.  We will be following the government advice and students do not need to wear masks in school from Monday 17th May.  We will continue to implement all our other safety measures and it is vitally important that students continue to take a lateral flow test twice a week.  In addition, students now need to wear their school uniform every day and bring their PE Kit with them on the days they have PE lessons and extra-curricular clubs.  There is some more information about this in the Covid section of the newsletter.

Enrichment and Extracurricular clubs continue to be a great success.  We believe that academic success should go hand-in hand with a rich variety of extra-curricular activities as they help foster a spirit of aspiration, resilience and a joy in learning.  At Harris Academy Wimbledon all students participate in enrichment and attend at least one after school extra-curricular activity.  With over 40 different clubs, there is plenty to choose from.

Mr Maurice will be leading a revision session for all students and parents on Monday 17th May from 6pm – 7pm and you will find the link in the newsletter.  It is a really important evening as it will give parents and students some key tips on how to revise successfully for the summer exams.

Students are really picking up the pace in receiving rewards and I enjoyed speaking to more Year 7 students in Principal’s breakfast this morning.  Please keep encouraging your child to work hard and collect their stickers.

Best wishes for a lovely weekend,

Mrs Larizadeh
