Values and vision
Harrop Fold School’s aim is to produce well-rounded young people who are prepared for an ever-changing world. The secondary school attempts to achieve this by focusing on the personal, social and academic aspects of education, which it believes will drive its students to reach their potential and achieve true excellence.
The school is involved in a widespread community programme. It entertains elderly citizens at an annual Christmas party, and contributes towards fundraising for local charities. Teachers encourage respect for other cultures and faiths by often highlighting the skills and customs offered by alternative cultures.
“The behaviour of students and their attitudes to learning are good. The curriculum provides students with an appropriate range of subjects and topics that ensures that they enjoy school. This contributes well to their good spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. Senior leaders and the governing body know the school’s strengths and what needs to be done to improve it further. They, together with all other members of the school community, and known as ‘Team Harrop’, are a strength of the school.”
