With many people creating new year resolutions, students have been looking into healthy eating and lifestyle choices this week. It's not just about feeling stronger, or more energetic, but ensuring your body gets the nutrients it needs and also building activity into your day.


Quote of the week: "Once the facts are clear, the decision jumps at you." By Peter F. Drucker


This weeks group read and discussion topics cover the recent news about Universal Credit and School budgets; articles by the BBC. Students will look at dissecting the main points of the articles, the issues raised and their thoughts on the topics.


Last night, as part of our A Level Dance course, some of our students enjoyed a great show Theatre, of Matthew Bourne's Swan Lake.


Countdown this week is a grand total of 298, using 25 1 75 100 2 50. Did you reach it? Students will also have 3 maths challenges within tutor time to try and complete.


Well done to Laila in Y8 who won last terms Weekly Math's Puzzle. This weeks is a magic square in which all rows, columns and diagonals, have the same total.


Book of the week is Montmorency, by Eleanor Updale. A thief leads two lives, one of a successful and elusive burglar, the other a wealthy gentleman. A complex character with a humorous undertone, makes this book a page turner.


This weeks word of the week is inconsequential. Students need to correctly use the word in lesson time and be the first person to use it!

Sixth Form students are thinking about metacognition this week and improving their thinking towards learning. Metacognition: It is the ability of the learner to plan, monitor, redirect and evaluate how they think and learn.


Quote of the week: "The past is a guidepost, not a hitching post." By L. Thomas Holdcroft.


This weeks reflection programme covers the topic of New Year's Resolutions. Students will look at the history behind the New Year's resolution and why is it important to set goals and reflect on the year before?


Countdown is back for the New Year. Using 100 75 5 9 7 8, can you get to 204? Why not also try our other challenges.


This week’s must read book is ‘Little Women’, by Louisa May Alcott. A classic story that follows the lives of four sisters.


It is the first week back for the New Year and this weeks word of the week is laborious. New cards are available for collection!


Happy New Year and welcome back to our staff and students.

The Final Day!

After yesterdays dancing activities, student woke for their final morning of snow filled #HGABRSkiSports2018 runs!

No clouds were in site as all students took to the slopes. All can proudly say that they have now completed the second hardest run at Crans Montana, Switzerland resort!

It was an amazing adventure for our students and we would like to thank the staff that went, with special thanks to Harris Boys' Academy East Dulwich and Harris Invictus, who joined us on this fantastic journey!


Day 5:

It’s the last full day on the slopes but students can’t wait to get back out there!

Students split up to take on challenges all over the mountain with all students having now graduated beyond the magic carpet and nursery slopes – an amazing achievement for all and testament to the great instructors.

See below pictures of those daring the forest run and those reaching the highest peaks for the full journey, all the way down!

To celebrate that last evening, students had a disco and with some being awarded some prizes and titles (see #HBAED report here) - complete with a dance off!

Check out all the amazing pictures and videos within our galleries.

Day 4:

The normal yet no less beautiful start to the day with a lovely breakfast before heading up the mountain for 10.10am.

Conditions were once again breathtaking as students continued to develop – making it harder for our staff to keep up with them!




Check our our video gallery for live action video's!

Day 3:

Even the weather played ball today as the predicted rain fall never materialised and students were once again met with sunshine and great skiing conditions.

Students continue to show great progress with some of the advance skiers going off-piste (showing off some real skills as they navigate on unmarked and unpatrolled areas) and our beginners set to move onto the intermediate level tomorrow.

Some of our boarders decided to take the scenic route back to the coach, opting for boarding the length of the run, instead of using the gondolas.

For the evenings entertainment, students could pick from two options; a relaxing movie night complete with a bar / cinema, fizzy drinks and popcorn, or, an active evening of sports in the local sports centre compiling of badminton, tennis or table football to name but a few.

Day 2:

Rising once again to fantastic conditions, students’ headed back to the slopes!


The beginners got to test their new skills around an inflatable course and have now graduated to steeper learning slopes, making great progress and gaining confidence with every turn, while the advanced skiers spent the day up the glacier completing a series of black runs and grinning from ear to ear.


The evening’s entertainment was a dip in the thermal spa and baths, as both students and staff took full advantage of these amazing facilities, relaxing to a back drop of snowy mountains.



Day 1:

After a long journey and a nights rest, students (and staff), had an early start to get their skis and boards fitted.

Students could choose boarding or skiing and were then placed in ability groups. The beginners spent the morning on what is referred to as the ‘magic carpet’, while they came to grips with the new skills they were being taught, whereas the advance skiers and boarders headed off to the nursery slope before heading to the top!

By the evening, students were a little bruised but enthusiastic, as the beginners graduated to the next slopes while the more advanced groups continued onwards and upwards to new heights, 2257 above sea level to be exact.


The day ended with a torch lit walk around the local (very much frozen) lake – a great end to an exciting yet demanding day.

On Friday 30 March staff and students are travelling to Crans Montana in Switzerland for the annual snow sports trip.

Harris Boys' Academy East Dulwich and Harris Invictus will be working with HGABR to add pictures and reports to this page and their page (click here for HBAED), every day.
