Our Aims: To Challenge, Support and Inspire

At King Harold Academy we realise that students are entering the most important stage of their education and that, as a school, we are being entrusted by parents and carers in the local community with the task of building the futures of the young people in our care. This is a task that we do not take lightly as we seek to challenge, support and inspire our students in a safe environment that nurtures learning and encourages hard work.

From each and every student we expect a determination to work to their highest standards, to develop a sense of self-reliance and to show respect for their own learning and that of their friends and peers. The education we offer at King Harold Academy is a three way partnership between the student, the school and the home environment and we aim to equip our students with the skills, knowledge and personal resilience for whatever the future holds for them, whether it be further study or employment with training. Parental support are essential in this process so that together we strive to provide the best education possible for your child. We firmly believe that every child deserves the best opportunities and that we have created a stimulating learning environment where talent is nurtured and learning valued.

Our motto encompasses our three core values:

  • To challenge. Our curriculum and the quality of our teaching allows all students, whatever their ability, to be challenged in all aspects of their learning. Clear academic targets allow students to take responsibility for their learning journey in attaining these targets

  • To support. At King Harold Academy we offer a safe and supportive environment with a team of form tutors and pastoral leaders who oversee the care of our students. We support all of the students in their learning and in their social, moral, spiritual and cultural development.

  • To inspire. We seek to inspire the students in their learning as they work towards their goals, whether these be academic or personal. The children at our school are inspired to make the most of the opportunities afforded to them.
