8A3 arriving for their assembly today ❤️


So lovely to see some of our Year 8s this morning


We can't wait for our celebration events this week. Today we have 8H1 at 9am, 8H2 and 10.30am, 8A3 at 12pm, and 8A4 at 1.30pm. Students should wear full uniform (but no bag) and arrive on time (not too early please!). We are so excited to see everyone!


Our final day of IID Week is Discovery Day. Discovery Day is all about embracing wider learning, and enriching our students with knowledge that they may not otherwise have access to. Lessons will be live on Teams all morning. Timetables for Yr 7 and 8 respectively are shown here.


Our penultimate newsletter of the term features staff welcomes and goodbyes, information about next week, results of the Junior Maths Challenge, information about next year's music lessons, and lots more!


On what would have been the day of the annual Harris Federation Sports Day at Crystal Palace, today we present our lockdown alternative: the HASU Virtual Games. We hope students enjoy this day - please send us photos of them taking part!


Well done to all students who took part in Innovation Day yesterday. We had lots of fantastic contributions. Today is Integrity Day. The full timetable is shown here - note that there is a special live tutor time at 1.20pm.

I am so excited for these assemblies and getting to see again!


Mr Fisher sent a letter home today inviting students to attend a celebration event at school next week. We really hope that lots of students are able to attend. Please complete the online reply slip in the letter so we know how many to expect. Thank you!


Thank you to everyone who participated in IID Day yesterday. Today is Innovation Day, and the focus for both year groups is 'The Shocking History of Electricity'. The first assembly of the day is on Teams at 9am. Enjoy!


Thank you, that is so kind of you to say.

A massive thank you to the Hudson family for their exceptionally generous donation of a piano to the Music and Performing Arts departments. We cannot wait for our students to use it!

Our weekly newsletter is now out! It features the incredible winners of our art competition, information about IID Week, and lots more. We hope you enjoy it.


The Virgin Radio 500 Word writing competition is for 5 - 13 year olds this week. Entries need to be submitted to the website by Friday at midnight. We know we have some amazing writers who want to share their voice.


Our students continued to work hard in the virtual school while HASU staff had an Inset Day today. It was wonderful that so many of our staff were able to attend. We loved meeting the new teachers who will be joining HASU in September. We can't wait for our students to meet them!


Our weekly newsletter has just been published! It's full of news of life in lockdown, plus celebrations of students' work. We hope you enjoy it.


In this week's assembly, Mr Fisher discusses the importance of supporting one another in our academy and wider community. We also have a beautiful performance from Pranav in 8S5.
