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?

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

Why come to Harris Girls' Academy Bromley Sixth Form?

For the past 2 and a half years as Principal of Harris Girls’ Academy Bromley, I have watched our sixth form grow and thrive.

Last September, we opened a brand new and state-of-the-art building. I would be the last person to argue that a great building is the be all and end all of a good school, but our sixth formers are really enjoying having their own space for studying and socialising. It is fantastic to see such a large proportion now continuing their education with us until age-18.

Alongside their committed academic study, students here are also encouraged to participate in a range of enrichment opportunities, from academic lectures to volunteering at local primary schools.

Our sixth form is a campus of the much larger Harris Federation Sixth Form. Our students benefit from the scale of being part of something so much bigger: there’s hardly a subject not on offer and sixth form can move between campuses if they need to.

But we are also a small, supportive site with very close relationships between staff and students.  Class sizes remain small, allowing teachers to give both A Level and vocational students the specific academic guidance they need.

In addition to providing exceptional teaching, we are a friendly and welcoming academy; teachers know students incredibly well, and there is always a listening ear!

If our sixth form sounds like a place that could suit your son or daughter (we are co-educational in the sixth form), please give us a call. We would be happy to invite you on a tour of the school and to answer any questions you or your child might have.
