The idea that anyone could criticise a young man who is essentially the same age as our y13s is appalling. A straight ‘A’ student, super talented and brave enough to step up. His team have shown the best of the country in the last month. We need to follow their example.


Day 1 and Mississippi have taken the lead … only time will tell 🏅


“ there’s been some fierce competition this morning, all Year 9’s have competed for their house in Football, Netball, Basketball, Badminton & Table Tennis “


Over 750 HARI students will be competing for this beauty! Students will be in their normal house groups. Points totalled at the end of the week! 🏆


This week is HARI SPORTS WEEK! Each year group will have a sports day this week consisting of the traditional athletics as well as sporting comps! ⚽️🏀🏃🏽🏐🏅

A PE teacher made the BEST point the other day - that they hate it when a ban of PE is used a punishment, PE is curriculum! You don’t see them going round banning English! “Right that’s it! NO READING TODAY” 🙄🤣 I agree! PE should not be banned EVER!!
