Harington School is a sixth form, A level only school, that opened in September 2015. Initially, students were housed in temporary accommodation until a new, purpose built school opened in November 2017. The main feeder schools are Catmose College and Uppingham Community College with some students travelling from further afield. The majority of the students are from Oakham, Uppingham, and the surrounding villages. A proportion of our students are from the farming community within Rutland.

The minimum entry requirements for Harington School are 5  GCSE at grade 6 or above (including at least a grade 5 in GCSE English Language & GCSE mathematics). There are 17 different A level courses on offer at Harington School. There is an emphasis on facilitating subjects. Most students take 3 A levels with around 25% taking the EPQ.

There is a rigorous assessment regime, with checkpoints throughout the two year course based on past examination questions. The end of year 12 examinations, where appropriate, used previous past papers and their corresponding grade boundaries. The grades attained in these examinations form the basis of our students UCAS predictions. Only Mathematics and Further Mathematics students sat the external AS examinations in 2017. In these 2 subjects, these results form the basis of UCAS predicted grades.

The year 13 year cohort has 110 students and it is estimated that 90% of the cohort will apply to University this academic year.
