It is the end of the first year at Harris Academy Wimbledon and what a fantastic year it has been.

The students have just completed a very rewarding half term.  It started with year 7 exams and as students received their exam marks back, we talked to them about seeing their results as part of a learning journey.  We asked them to reflect on the process that led to the results, and start to ask themselves some questions.  Did they work hard during the whole year or were they cramming at the last minute?  How effective was their revision and what can they do to improve in the future?  The most important thing in Year 7 is to focus on the process rather than the results and to look at how they can develop their learning and revision in the years ahead.

The exams were following by a residential trip to PGL.  This was a resounding success and if you haven’t seen all the photographs on Twitter, it is worth taking a look.  You will see students taking risks and having fun.

We continue with our sporting opportunities.  The hockey team had the opportunity to represent Merton at the Hockey Youth Games and the tennis club had a competition with local schools.  Sport and fitness is an integral part of our school life and we try and give the students as many opportunities as possible. Dominique and Natalie both picked up Bronze medals at the Harris Federation sports day and many medals were won at our own sports day in the last week of term.

The new year 7 created an excellent first impression on Induction day and we are very much looking forward to them joining us in September; the current Year 7s looked after them with great care and enthusiasm.  The student leadership team started their new responsibilities exceptionally well and Ellie and Patryk delivered their first speech as Head Girl and Head Boy.

We welcome a number of new teachers in September as we more than double in size.  I am delighted with the appointments; all the staff are specialists in their subject and bring with them a range of experiences and interests.  Every department will have a new member of staff and the leadership team will also grow.  Mr Maurice joins us from the Harris Federation central team as Senior Assistant Principal with the responsibility for Curriculum, Teaching and Learning, Miss Pocock will be Assistant Principal with the responsibility for the pastoral care of Year 7 and 8 and Mr Arnold joins us as Assistant Principal with the responsibility for the co-curricular programme and partnerships. 

Our motto is ‘Make a Difference’ and everyone has made a positive difference to their own lives and the lives of everyone around them during the course of the year.  The students are a veritable kaleidoscope of abilities, skills, talents and experiences and it has been a pleasure to work with them and celebrate their success this year.

Next year we start a new chapter in our journey. 

Thank you for all your support this year.
