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!


Students exploring density of different materials in our STEM CLUB launching session. We look forward to seeing them returning every Tuesday for discovering real-life applications of what we learn in lessons.
