Creating Ambitious Students

We believe strongly that there should be no limit to what students can achieve, regardless of their background or any barriers that they may face. Being ambitious helps students achieve exceptional progress. Whether it be to university, employment, or training, it is our belief that if a student is guided and inspired to be ambitious throughout their five years at Harlington, then they will achieve their potential.

Creating Altruistic Individuals

Harlington students are part of a thoughtful, warm, and welcoming school and are taught to understand the importance of their role within our community. Our students are expected to contribute to the school positively and constructively; they are taught to understand the ways in which their conduct influences and shapes the experiences of those around them and so they act with generosity and in the spirit of collaboration.

Creating Accountable Leaders

We believe being accountable encourages self-awareness and honesty and that this quality is central to success at Harlington. Our students are helped to consider and understand the consequences of their words, actions, and conduct, and learn from their experiences. When students are accountable, they are more conscious of the connection between their actions and outcomes.

Student Leadership: Mental Health and Wellbeing Leaders

Creating opportunities for students to understand that poor mental health can impact anyone either now or in the future is crucial. Equally, if this happens what to do and what support is available. Wellbeing impacts everything. Our roles therefore include promoting school-wide mental health support, acting as role models and to be recognisable and approachable faces that students know. We want students to know it is ok to ask for help and to talk. We offer a drop-in surgery to all students on a Thursday lunchtime in the library.
