Harington school is a first rate learning environment. 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.

Based in a state of the art building specifically designed for A level teaching, students benefit from being taught by highly committed, experienced and talented teaching staff who are all subject specialists. At Harington we naturally work hard in lessons but that is not enough, Students are actively encouraged to engage in all the other opportunities available to ensure they leave as well-rounded and ambitious young adults.

Whether your interests are in music, the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, public speaking or sport, you will be well catered for. Most students attending the school ultimately apply for a degree or a high quality further education course and are well supported by a comprehensive careers programme which includes specific pathways for specialist careers. More details on the School can be found via the menu above or on the DfE.


The Harington curriculum is based on studying between 3 and 4 A levels and is suited to those learners who wish to pursue a demanding academic pathway. In particular, it is tailored to suit students who aspire to study at Russell Group universities or higher level apprenticeships.

It is our policy to offer a core of facilitating A level subjects. These are courses that are recommended as preparation for degree level study, that will therefore keep as many doors open as possible regarding degree choices.

All students will choose at least three A levels, with a smaller number studying four, after discussion. By choosing at least one (and more often 2, 3 or 4) facilitating subject(s) our sixth formers will have real choices about Higher Education options.
