A massive thanks to everyone that came along to our Harrow Way 50 Summer Fete today. It was fantastic to see so many students, staff and wider school community - both past and present - all together on such a beautiful summer day. We were genuinely touched that so many people came to support the event - especially the significant numbers no longer local, who had travelled back to Andover especially.

A massive thank you to everyone who helped to organise, came along to help, manned a stall, exhibited their products or turned out to support.

We've got photos and video, both of the day itself and of Harrow Way history to sort through now, but please do share your own fete photos here publicly on Facebook, or with us privately if you'd prefer.

Thanks again; fantastic Harrow Way School community. :)

Amazing Alice ribbons, in memory of Alice Razza, will be on sale at the Harrow Way 50 Fete tomorrow. All money raised will be donated to the The Joe Glover Trust, children's cancer charity.

We look forward to seeing you there - 1-5pm.

[07/06/17]   At the end of this term, the longest serving member of staff still at Harrow Way, Mr Warren, is going to be retiring after 31 years.

We know from all the memories we've had from former students that Mr Warren has remained in lots of students' memories as a teacher who many think very fondly of.

If anyone has any memories, photos or maybe even wants to send us a short video that we can use when we have to say 'Bon Voyagé' to him in a couple of weeks, we'd love your contributions - either here publicly, or in a private message if you'd prefer.

Many thanks - and we are looking forward to seeing plenty of ex-Harrow Way at the fete on Saturday.

[07/04/17]   Come and see and handle some amazing animals with Slithers And Wriggles Mobile petting Zoo joining us at our fete on Saturday! Not to be missed!

Harrow Way 50 - Dracula Spectacula 1995

We've found a Student Media Studies project from 1995 covering behind the scenes of the production that year, the Dracula Spectacula Show.

This was the final Harrow Way production before the extensive refurbishment of the auditorium in 1996 and shows the huge logistical effort of having to bring in the staging, lighting and sound gear from outside.

Also, we didn't feel as though we'd quite shown enough footage of one of our current teachers as a student yet; so we thought we'd publish his media studies project 20+ years on.

Sad news in today's Andover Advertiser. This man was a lovely caretaker when I was at the school (he lived in the bungalow next door).

Harrow Way Plans - Google Drive

We've found the original architects plans for Harrow Way School from 1964 as well as the proposed plans for the 'New' (now English) block and Sports Hall.

Many thanks to Nigel from Mailboxes etc in Andover, a former HW student himself, for scanning these big paper documents for us.

Spot the teaching spaces for subject areas gone by - including Housecraft and Needlework. We're also still waiting for our 'Covered Swimming Pool' too!

From Harrow Way's first Headteacher, Mr Garner's, log book in February 1968, we can see the school had just broken up for Half Term on this week 49 years ago. 20 children were just about to be presented with their cycling proficiency certificates too - were you one of those 20?

Harrow Way School Class of 1990

John Baxter (fondly remembered by many going by our HWAA signups so far), put together a film some time ago showcasing some of the highlights for the Class of 1990.

This video includes excerpts from:
Under Milkwood - Andover Dramatic Society, November 1985
Mr Hallifax's final show, July 1986
The Suicide - Andover Dramatic Society, March 1987
Phillup the Float - Mr John Taylor's Christmas Charity, December 1987
Sweeney Todd, February 1988 (Watch out for Dave Allon as Queen Victoria!)
The Wiz, February 1989
Guys and Dolls, February 1990
The Dinner Dance / Prom, June 1990

https://youtu.be/9eamiCBHz6I

In 1990 a video was produced which featured a collection of clips from the five years that this cohort had spent at Harrow Way Community School, Andover, Ham...

[02/15/17]   Thanks to all our alumni for all their responses and for sharing our page so quickly; we love hearing your memories.

We had a response on our HWAA signup form from Jessica, who left in the year 2000 and has "French lessons with Mr Warren" as one of her most memorable things about Harrow Way. Mr Warren is still working at Harrow Way as Deputy Headteacher and was very pleased to be remembered so fondly. Jessica - he says he remembers you well too!

Harrow Way - School of the Week (1995)

In 1995, Harrow Way was featured on Nickleodeon TVs "School of the Week". We found the tape last year!

Two of the students featured in this film have since become Harrow Way staff.

We'd also like to hear from students who came to the school in the 70s, 80s, 90s and 20s.

Please share amongst your friends and contact us by posting memories on our page, in person at the school or sign up to our Alumni Association: http://www.harrowway.hants.sch.uk/community/hwaa

Keep your eyes peeled for events and activities taking place during this year.
