Harington school is an academic sixth form with a proven track record of delivering strong results at A level. We are passionate about raising student achievement and work tirelessly to ensure no one is left behind.

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.
