An exciting House competition update. Here at Harris Clapham Sixth Form, we currently have House Morris in first place, Franklin in second and Kahlo and Mendes in joint third. With one more House competiton, there is still all to play for!


Last Friday, we had a moving Year 13 Assembly followed by a fun student led Soirée. It was a lovely way for the community to come together and celebrate Year 13’s journey with us.


It’s a two assembly week, so as well as linguistically interesting advice for year 12s, we have a timely sporting analogy for Year 13:


This afternoon’s Year 12 assembly at introduced me to a new word and has left me pondering its plural. A mumpsimus is an error determinedly continued despite correction, but is it two mumpsimi, mumpsimuses, mumpsimodes?


Exciting to see our assemblies quoted in the news (not a lot of sixth forms can claim that):


Today, our Student President Ruweida and one of our Vice Presidents Sarah went over to to deliver some words of wisdom to the Year students about how to prepare for Year 11 next year.#community

House System

When you join Harris Clapham Sixth Form, you will be assigned to one of the four houses, which are named after inspiring figures who embody the Clapham values of Courage, Confidence and Commitment. The Heads of House will provide leadership, guidance and pastoral support. House assemblies will be held on a regular basis. There will be opportunities for friendly competition between the houses, culminating in the House Cup.


Rosalind Franklin was an x-ray crystallographer (a type of physical chemist – that uses x-rays to determine the structure of crystals.) She helped discover the structure of DNA but was overlooked in a time when women were less respected in certain fields, such as the sciences. Despite not receiving the recognition when she was alive, the work Franklin completed would go on to revolutionise modern medicine, science and day to day life


Frida Kahlo was a painter from Mexico born in the 1900s. She is best known for her work that depicted unconventional representation of modern-day women, mainly with a focus on her own stories and image. In her youth she suffered extensive injuries to her entire body and was left in full body cast focused on her artwork as a mean of expression in a time, during this time she struggled to express herself. She embodies the ideals of courage, confidence and commitment to her craft as a painter.


Chico Mendes was a Brazilian environmentalist who campaigned for the preservation of the Amazon rainforest, and for the rights of indigenous peoples. His dedication to these causes symbolise the values of courage, confidence and commitment which Harris Clapham Sixth Form students should aim to embody.


Olive Morris was an activist, a feminist and a Black rights campaigner who worked tirelessly throughout her short life to fight for what she believed in. She is a great example of showing courage, being confident and being committed, even when its difficult. She grew up in Brixton and made a tangible impact on our local area, and across the entire country. She is a testament to the idea that individuals can ignite change, and leaders can come from anywhere!
