THANK YOU to everyone for your ideas. We've decided to provide supermarket vouchers, giving parents a choice of where to shop and what to buy. The first £8,000 will be emailed tomorrow to 400 Harris families. 60 laptops + dongles will be given out next week, with more to follow.

PLEASE RETWEET: with 36,000 families at our schools in London and Essex, we want to supply food parcels for those in need (on top of free school meals which we’re already doing). We’ll fully fund this but URGENTLY need a supermarket chain to help.

The Virtual Rainham Experience

The Rainham Experience is changing now that we have temporarily become a virtual school! 

One of the challenges of spending a lot of time at home is using that time constructively. The Rainham Experience will help you do so by recommending books, exhibitions and performances, available for free, and selected to help you experience the best that has been thought and expressed.

This is still all about giving you an edge when it comes to getting into the best universities and the top professions. Each week, we are going to publish a list of:

  • three fiction books
  • one non-fiction book
  • one virtual museum or gallery
  • one video.

You can download the latest Rainham Experience List below. The list includes links to where you can find find everything for FREE. Do email Mr Phillips each time you complete one so he can keep a note of where we’re all up to! Any questions, please email Mr Phillips.
