BBC News talks to HAP students as they mark the 20th anniversary of Damilola Taylor's stabbing.


Lots of deep thinking by our Y8 Kings Scholars students being reintroduced to metacognition, and how it is like a tool box as part of their Design a University series. Stand out was: Metacognition holds all the tools to success


Very thoughtful and reflective comment from Y11 student, Fabiola about last week's Masterclass on Bernard Coard & the Black Education Movement. Wonderful to see aspirations to further understand past & how it shapes the present


Our Y8 Kings Scholars enjoyed their 1st session of their Design a University sessions. Today they recalled their metacognition skills & learnt more about university subject specialisms. They were so excited to see Paul from too!

Black History Month Lessons During October

In History, we will be running a special Black History Month lesson starting in the first full week of October for Key Stage 3.

The focus of all three lessons will be around Mansa Musa and his Malian Kingdom, with slight different slants to fit with the curriculums KS3 historians are working through.

Year 7 - looking at Mansa Musa through the lens of "What does Mansa Musa reveal to us about medieval kingship?" - to fit with our curriculum focus right now on medieval kingship.

Year 8 - looking at Mansa Musa through the lens of "What does Mansa Musa reveal to us about Islam in Medieval Western Africa?" to link with our curriculum focus previously on Islamic Civilisations.

Year 9 - looking at "Why is Mansa Musa relevant to the current Black Lives Matters movement" to link with their current studies on Civil Rights in UK and USA. And to link in some Beyonce, linking it to Black is King.

BHM2We will also be promoting what students study in History through assemblies.

We will be creating a bibliography of books/posters for students to do further reading focused on what students are currently studying in History.

The Geography department will be posting some great resources around the school focused on Black geographers who have made significant contributions in the history of geography. 

We have also created a paper for KS3 on Black Germans, Black Tudors and Black contributions to Medicine to complement their GCSE studies.
