Harrow Way School has recognised a group of students who stepped up to produce lockdown videos for the whole school.

The school praised its student leadership team, which is comprised of the school’s head girl, deputy and other senior prefects, for making 12 videos that tackled a range of subjects, including challenging racism, challenging climate change, feminism, LGBTQ+ rights and protecting mental health.

The group had volunteered to lead the project, making the videos weekly for the school while they were working from home. As a result of their efforts, they were given a commendation by the school’s Headteacher, Michael Serridge for their work.

Assistant Headteacher Andrew Whitworth praised the team’s work, saying: “Our Student Leadership Team really rose to the challenge of supporting and uniting, what was at the time, our remote school community. And while teachers and students were working hard to keep the lessons and learning going we also recognised that there were other important issues and subjects for all our students to understand.

“By creating these videos our Student Leadership Team has played a vital role in helping students understand these topics which are key to developing the values and morals of good citizens.”

“The level of discussion and consideration demonstrated by the students was sublime and highlighted how outstanding our students are. The Year 11 Leadership Team has continued this dazzling work since their return, and we couldn't be prouder.”
