Autumn term has been extremely busy! We have been pleased to welcome lots of year 7’s working on a range of topics for Learning to Learn and Humanities, while Key Stage 4 students have worked on GCSE coursework and BTECs.
“If you love science, you’ll love science club!”
Science club is a fun club where we use skills that we learn in the science classroom and put them in to practise in lots of fun experiments, demonstrations and participations.
A group of pupils at Harwich and Dovercourt High School participated in ITV Anglia’s ‘First World War School Report 2014’ project recently.
On Friday March 23rd the Harwich and Dovercourt High School skiing students set off on a massive 22 hour journey to Austria. First part of the journey we travelled down to Dover to meet Cassey the lovely PGL rep. We got on the Eurostar at 8:30pm and arrived in France at 9:10pm. Our drivers DJ Steve and Darren powered on through the night and we woke up the next morning on the borders of Germany and Austria. With a quick pit stop for breakfast we then got back onto the Autobahn to Austria. The landscape grew tall as the mountains climbed, we passed little rivers and farmers’ fields to arrive at the Hotel Sonnegg at 2pm on Saturday afternoon, a bum-numbing journey. With a swift unpack we walked to the ski and boot hire shop down the hill and got kitted out. We then chilled out in our rooms at the hotel for the evening.
On the 24th April the Harwich and Dovercourt High School was fortunate enough to have Adisa the Verbaliser as a visitor to our school. Adisa is an accomplished speaker and poet who regularly visits schools. Adisa spent the day with our students with the aim being to engage students with poetry.
