I am delighted to welcome you to Harington School. I hope that this prospectus provides you with all the information you require to make an informed decision about where to study for your post-16 education and gives you a flavour of what makes the school special.

At Harington we expect a lot from our learners. We want students who are hardworking, committed and mature in their approach; students who will support each other and take advantage of all that the school has to offer.

At Harington we are large enough to offer eighteen A level courses, each taught by a team of subject specialists, in modest size groups, delivered through a generous time allocation.

We are small enough to know each student by name and to ensure that each learner feels well supported throughout their time at the school.

Outstanding academic success is an important feature of Harington but we know that on its own it is not enough. If you come to the school you will benefit from access to a wide range of extra-curricular opportunities, including an academic enrichment programme, The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, musical scholarship, leadership and sporting opportunities.

At Harington you will have all the support you need to access the next stage of your career, whether that is striving to attend the top universities, accessing high quality apprenticeships or entering the world of work. Our first class UCAS and careers programme, supported through our link with Oakham School, ensures that you are given high quality guidance throughout your time at the school.

Above all, we will help you grow in confidence and fulfil your true potential. In becoming a student at Harington you will be joining a caring environment in which all your achievements will be celebrated.

I look forward to meeting you.

John Harrison
Head of School

Supporting your Interests and Aspirations

At Harington we work hard to ensure that you have access to a wide range of enrichment and activities that support your future career goals, help you become a well rounded individual, and are fun!

Our Academic Enrichment Programme focuses on ensuring you leave the school with the best possible chance of successfully applying for that competitive university course or degree apprenticeships that you aspire to. Our Activity programme is a chance for you to enjoy some much needed down time – there is something for everyone, whether musical, sporting, community based or otherwise.

The final element alongside your A levels is the opportunity to take part in our Duke of Edinburgh scheme which has gone from strength to strength. If you are a veteran or Bronze and Silver or new to the scheme post 16 is a great time to get involved.

Academic Success

Harington School is a first rate learning environment, judged as outstanding in all categories by Ofsted (January 2017). We are privileged to be large enough to offer a wide range of curriculum and enrichment activities but small enough to maintain a family ethos where all students are known personally.

Alongside our academic subjects, students benefit greatly from accessing our academic enrichment programme, bespoke supports for competitive universities, and a full activity programme.
