Welcome to King Harold Academy
I am extremely proud to be the Headteacher of King Harold Academy. We are a community of superb students, staff, parents and governors who believe in the transformative potential of high quality education.
I believe that there should never be any limits imposed on the aspirations and ambitions of King Harold students; they can and will achieve whatever they choose to put their mind to, and it is my job to ensure that we work together as a community to support them to this end!
King Harold Academy knows that having exceptionally high expectations for achievement, regardless of circumstances or starting points, is a self-fulfilling prophecy – if we expect the best from our students in everything they do, the rest follows. Subsequently, our staff make no apologies for challenging all members of our community to reach the highest of standards, and encouraging them to aspire for more from every aspect of their schooling. We are driven by our unwavering belief that every student deserves the best education and, with the right support, guidance and encouragement, will excel beyond what they ever thought possible.
A culture of excellence extends beyond our academic curriculum. We also want our students to be happy, kind and well-rounded individuals who contribute positively to the world. With the right support and education, we know that all King Harold students will have the skills, knowledge and motivation to make the communities they go on to live and work in better places. Our curriculum provision is richly academic, broad in scope, and diverse, giving students the tools they need to navigate the challenges life will throw at them, make sound judgements and create opportunities for themselves, their families and their communities. I believe wholeheartedly that a high-quality, ambitious education is the most valuable investment we can make in our students, and I will ensure our staff work tirelessly to make this happen.
