We would like to thank you and all of the staff at Harris Beckenham for all their hard work and support. Aside from a few technical issues in the beginning, it has been pretty faultless for our son's home-schooling and he is very much looking forward to coming back to school. https://t.co/v1CXaalWqY

A massive thank you to and our Y11 cohort for such a thought provoking Q&A session last Thursday. It was so enlightening to hear our Pigeon English author’s insight into the writing of his text, and for our students to pose their own questions, we learnt so much! https://t.co/rflboCxTvX
