Welcome from the Head of School

Welcome to King Harold Academy. This is a good school and we are very proud of our staff, students, and the community that it serves.

We are privileged to work with amazing staff, students, parents, carers and a community that works relentlessly together to ensure that our students are well rounded individuals who excel; a community that has the highest of expectations, in which we all support each other to achieve them.

As an academy we are passionate about learning. Our highest priority is to provide an environment for our students that challenges, supports and inspires them. We invest in lifelong learning and the success of our students is paramount. Year 7 is the start of a journey to success and achieving excellent academic qualifications to move on to higher education and beyond.

Students always say that they feel safe, supported and happy at King Harold. They are keen to become fully involved in the life of the academy, showing pride in all that they do. The commitment from our students is exceptionally high to both learning in the classroom and involvement in our wider enrichment activities.
