      Curriculum Overview

      At Harlington we believe all students have the right to a broad, balanced and relevant curriculum which provides continuity and progression and also takes individual differences into account.  There are four main aims to the curriculum:

      1. To provide opportunities for all students to learn and achieve their full potential
      2. To promote students' spiritual, moral, social and cultural development
      3. To prepare all students for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of life as active members of society
      4. To enable students to progress on to their chosen pathway

      In addition, we aim to help and encourage students to reach their highest level of personal achievement, and specifically to:

      • Develop self-esteem, confidence, self-discipline, a sense of personal morality and spiritual understanding
      • Understand and respect themselves, others and their environment
      • Gain skill to become lifelong learners, to accept responsibility and make a positive contribution to society
      • Hold high expectations for themselves and others in all aspects of school life
      • Learn to be adaptable, to solve problems in a variety of situations and to work both independently and as members of a team
      • Develop the ability to makes reasoned judgements and choices, based on investigation, interpretation and evaluation of relevant information
      • Reach the highest possible levels of achievement in a calm, safe, ordered and happy environment

      Harlington offers a wide and rich curriculum to all its students.
