Values and vision
Harlington School believes it has a duty not only to support students in gaining the skills required to pass examinations, but also to develop them into well-rounded people who are have the skills required to continue with further study and then into the world of work. The school wishes to help students develop their own beliefs by exposing them to different viewpoints, religions, and cultures that will prepare them for life in modern Britain.
The school also values healthy competition. Students are offered the opportunity to participate in several inter-house competitions throughout the year, which include drama, music and sporting events.
“Leaders and governors have successfully improved the quality of teaching and the achievement of students, including for those in the specialist resource provision. Students make at least good progress in English and most other subjects by the end of Key Stage 4. Teaching is consistently good. Teachers know their students well and typically plan suitable activities to develop knowledge and understanding.”
