Harry Potter Day


As part of our joint primary liaison initiative, WELLACRE and FLIXTON GIRLS SCHOOL welcomed local Primary schools and their Year 5 students to take part in a fun packed introduction to each secondary school.

The boys of Urmston Juniors, St Mary’s and English Martyrs were invited to Wellacre to take part and Flixton welcomed the girls.

Year 5 students were met by Our Principal Miss Wicks and placed into a Hogwarts House; Gryffindor, Hufflepuff and Ravenclaw. Our team of Transition Ambassadors walked each group to their lessons and were on hand to answer questions, helping to acclimatise the young students.

Miss Katie Mcdonough Leader of Drama, presented a drama workshop for the boys, working in groups to create Freeze Frames of favorite Harry Potter moments. Each group had a chance to perform and acted out their scenes enthusiastically totheir peers. Miss Mcdonough offered further advice and acting tips during a discussion after each performance.



Mr Richard Asha Teacher of Science, provided an explosive experiment! Using a simple chemical reaction to create a Popping! experiment for Year 5 students to take part in. The fun packed session brought to life everyday science in an exciting way. Mr Asha also received plaudits for his costume and character acting.






Mr Amit Jain Teacher of Technology, gathered each group in one of our technology studios. After a Harry Potter quiz students were invited to design and make badges in response to their Hogwarts House and favorite Potter moments. After a short presentation, each group decided an overall winner of ‘Best Badge’ and they were presented with a trophy, cut on our 3D printer.






Our Thanks to the Primary Schools who took part; Urmston Juniors, St Mary’s and English Martyrs. To Flixton Girls School for their work and support and to all WELLACRE Staff and Students who helped to make Harry Potter Day such an enjoyable success.
