During assemblies this week my central message was again about challenge and expectations. I have asked teachers to expect even more of our incredible young people and encouraged the students to push themselves out of their comfort zone more consistently. Last year, we worked hard to significantly raise expectations around are three simple rules of ‘Be Ready Be Respectful and Be your Best’ in lessons and the students rose magnificently to that challenge. I am convinced that we still have even more potential to realise and, with continued partnership between teachers, parents and students, will continue to make great strides this year.
Over the next two week our catering providers HC3S are providing our students with the best of British food being served at lunchtimes starting on Monday 19th September. Below are the upcoming menus!

With the world’s tropical rainforests slightly too far away for a day trip, Harrow Way Community School Year 8 Geographers instead found themselves exploring Kew Gardens historic Palm House. Considered to be the most important surviving Victorian iron and glass structure in the world, the Palm House proved to be the perfect backdrop for the Harrow Way students to discover the tropical rainforest.
Kelly Campbell, Curriculum Leader for Geography said: “The students enjoyed taking part in a treasure hunt to investigate the four layers of the rainforest and to find out how we are connected to the forest as part of our everyday lives. The scientific study of the relationships between people and plants, deforestation, fair trade and sustainable farming were all explored as students experienced the climate, viewed the rainforest at ground and upper level and searched for cool plants used as ingredients in everyday items such as toothpaste”.
