Welcome to King Harold Academy
King Harold Academy has a rich history. Named after the last Anglo Saxon King of England Harold Godwinson the school was first opened in 1952. Six generations have passed through the gates of King Harold having spent the “best days of their lives” being prepared for their futures. The school has witnessed huge changes in life and society and has always adapted to the needs of the students it serves.
King Harold Academy is riding a crest of recent success and will continue to adapt and improve in the interests of every child that attends the school. Learning is central to everything we do at King Harold, it is our central belief that schools work best when teachers love teaching and students love learning.
Students experience great lessons, great teachers and are afforded great opportunities to develop academically and socially in and outside the classroom. Students are taught how to think logically and morally. They are challenged to think critically along with learning the core knowledge of English, Maths and Science. It is our belief that students should be versed in the “The best which has been thought and Said” along with understanding the modern, changing world in which we live.
We pride ourselves on being an open school, we know that children achieve best when there is a partnership between teachers and parents. We are providing one of the most important service a family can receive; the education of their children and this is most successful when the school, the students and their parents work together.
Please feel free to visit, take a tour, speak to our students and teachers. I am certain you will be impressed.
