Welcome to the Harvey Grammar School website
Mr S Norman
I would like to thank you for your interest in the Harvey Grammar School. Our school is a community of happy, well-disciplined and bright young men, served by an experienced and enthusiastic staff who have a trusted track record of helping our pupils develop into well rounded individuals with excellent academic records.
We feel passionately about wanting our pupils to enjoy their time at the Harvey and do all we can to help them develop into self-assured, articulate and helpful young men, ready and equipped to go on to the next stage of their careers.
We will encourage your son to “work hard, play hard” but also to show care and compassion for his fellow pupils. We have high expectations, but with the outstanding quality of teaching and wide range of extra-curricular activities offered by the school, we ensure that every pupil is able to identify and develop to a high standard his particular talents, whether they be in the academic, sporting, creative or other fields.
Last week several Year 12 students from the Harvey Grammar School visited Stelling Minnis Primary to deliver a History lesson on the Battle of Hastings. The year 3 and 4 pupils were very enthusiastic about the resources the Harvey students had prepared and our year 12 historians were excellent ambassadors for the Harvey. Well done!
Last week in assembly volunteers from the student body stepped forward to present policies from the major parties of the 2015 election. The students spoke with confidence and the hustings in the hall on Friday allowed for other pupils to ask questions and join in with the debate. The week of the election students at the Harvey will be casting their votes in tutor time to support their preferred party and decide on the outcome of the mock election in our school. Well done to all students who stepped forward to represent a party or helped out with the mock election!
There will be a Tag Day and Cake sale on Friday 8th May. Minimum £1 donation is requested, although we would encourage you to donate more. HEN will also be selling cakes in L27 at morning break and lunch time. All proceeds will go to the Disasters Emergency Committee Nepal Earthquake Appeal.
