HARRIS ACADEMY WIMBLEDON OPENS ITS DOORS TO ITS FIRST STUDENTS

 

On Thursday, the brand new Harris Academy Wimbledon opened its doors to its first ever students.  I am extremely proud to be leading an ambitious new academy and it has been a pleasure to welcome our first Year 7 students this week.

The students arrived with a mixture of excitement and nerves, looking exceptionally smart in their brand new school uniform.  In our first assembly I spoke to them about our motto ‘Make a Difference’ and how they can make a difference to their own lives and the lives of others around them.  In Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets Dumbledore says the following:

‘It is our choices, Harry, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities’

This central message of the Harry Potter series is what I want the students to think about and act on.  I know our students already have a variety of abilities - we have budding leaders, sportsmen and women, mathematicians, journalists, lawyers and much more – but I want the students to make the right choices to maximise their abilities, to work hard and to be kind.

Next week brings the first full week of the school timetable and the students will need to be organised, ensuring they bring in the correct books and equipment to school.  Tuesday sees the launch of our exciting enrichment programme and during the week they will begin to find out about all of the extra-curricular activities they can be part of.

I wish you all a very successful and enjoyable week.
