The last pic, a seemingly decrepit old computer? This was the world's first web server, marking the very beginning of what we know today as the World Wide Web. It first went online over 25 years ago at CERN, laying the foundation for the development of the internet as we know it.


Mr. Adams has unapologetically taken the liberty of sharing some nerdy and amazing photos from the computer section at the Science Museum! From technological innovations to really nerdy stuff, our Year 8 students are having a blast exploring the world of science and technology.


🦖 While Year 8 is exploring the wonders of science at the Science Museum, another group is stepping back in time at the Natural History Museum! They've even spotted a T-Rex dressed as Santa. Who said learning can't be festive? 🎅


🔬 Year 8 are off to the Science Museum today as part of our character education program! We're excited for them to explore the wonders of science and technology. Stay tuned for updates on their educational adventure. 🚀

My Child At School - Parent Portal

MCASWe use the MyChildAtSchool (MCAS) portal to give parents up-to-date information about their child's attendance, behaviour and timetable.

In order to assist with this, we ask all parents to activate their MyChildAtSchool (MCAS) account.

Please click HERE to see a parent guide which will support you to log into your account. 

Benefits of activating your account

You will be able to view your child’s behaviour, attendance and timetable.

  • Rewards and behaviour points can be viewed in real time. For example, if a student is awarded a Harris Point during the school day you will be able to see this as soon as it is logged onto our system. You will also be able to see the reason the point has been awarded.  This makes for very positive conversations at home.
  • Attendance and punctuality is seen LIVE. You will be able to view your child’s overall attendance certificate, along with their daily attendance to each lesson, when they are in school. This will include punctuality as you will be able to see if your child has been late to lesson.
  • You will be able to see your child’s weekly timetable.   

We would encourage all parents to sign up to MCAS. Students can have multiple parents signed up, as long as we have each parent’s email address registered on our system.
