History students have finished their British Experience of Warfare trip and are now heading for the ferry. On their final day they began with a visit to Langemarck Cemetary where they learnt more about the German position in the war and linked to the famous visit by Hitler during 1940. From there students went to the Passchendaele Museum where they learnt of the horrific conditions during the battle and how the British learnt to break the trench deadlock. Outside the museum they were lucky to have a talk through the weaponry of the war such as the Lee Enfield Rifle and the Lewis Machine Gun. Students had a great ending to the tour where they went to Tyne Cot Memorial where Year 12 student, Oliver visited the grave of one of his relatives. Harington students participated in a wreath laying ceremony to conclude the tour.#haringtonschool #WW1 #tynecotmemorial #LearningJourney ... See MoreSee Less

The Greenpower team have been busy applying the knowledge they have gained from the materials and mechanics topics in Physics, by constructing the school’s second electric car. The initial chassis is now complete. Just four wheels, a motor, two batteries, an aerodynamic carbon fibre body and some electronics needed to complete their scratch-built car. Once the team have recruited a brave driver, they will be ready for racing.#HaringtonSchool #Greenpower2024 ... See MoreSee Less

Harington History students have just finished their first trip as part of the British Experience of Warfare residential. They visited the site of the Battle of Waterloo where the Duke of Wellington famously defeated Napoleon. The trip began with a visit to the Waterloo Museum where they saw the various uniforms and weaponry used by the French and the British armies. They have walked to the top of Lion’s Mound to see the overview of the battlefield, seeing the reverse ridge used to shelter Welligton’s troops and the three farm houses that were vital to the battle. Students then visited Hougoumont Farm which was valiantly defended by the British before successfully closing the doors and securing the farm. As Wellington famously said in respect of those that died defending this farm, “next to a battle lost, the greatest misery is a battle gained.” To conclude, students took part in practising line, square and column formations and discussing their tactical advantages. Tomorrow they move on to Ypres to begin looking at the changes in warfare during WW1. ... See MoreSee Less

During the Easter break Year 12 students from Harington School were busy practising for their Gold Duke of Edinburgh’s qualifying expedition in an extremely wet Wales. Four teams travelled to the Elan Valley area of the Cambrian Mountains in Mid Wales, where they successfully completed the expedition over 4 days and 3 nights. Students typically journeyed for 8 hours each day unaccompanied and self-sufficient. The aim of the Expedition section is to inspire young people to develop initiative and a spirit of adventure and discovery by planning, training for and completing an adventurous independent journey as part of a team. The remote environment and challenging weather definitely tested all the teams, standards and expectations are set extremely high at this level and the students definitely met them, showing outstanding resilience and teamwork. Well done!#haringtonschool #golddofe #dukeofedinburgh ... See MoreSee Less
