About Harper Green School

Harper Green School is a co-educational comprehensive located in Bolton, Greater Manchester. First established in 1927, the school underwent a transformation in 1982, becoming a comprehensive. Today, the school has around 1300 pupils aged 11-16, making it noticeably larger than the average secondary school of its type. Although the bulk of teaching takes place on-site, the school does make some use of off-site provision for pupils with particular educational needs. The school site has seen extensive redevelopment and modernisation since its founding, and can now boast of a range of modern teaching facilities, with the most recent of these being a new dance studio opened in 2010.

Values and Vision

Harper Green School is committed to providing educational opportunity for all pupils, regardless of background or academic ability. It achieves this by running a diverse and well-balanced curriculum, with proper careers support for older students looking to go into further education or employment post-16. The school also sets a high standard for behaviour and discipline, and encourages pupils to carry that with them when they leave school. 


“The exceptional leadership of the executive Headteacher and newly appointed senior leaders has strengthened the school’s capacity to raise achievement for all students. Standards are now rising after a period of decline. Students achieve well in science and religious education. The school provides good care and support to students. It works effectively with other services to keep vulnerable students safe.”
