Harlington Upper School

News

Harlington Upper School is officially world class

In 2015 Harlington was selected by DfE to participate in the important Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS).  The results were released on 29th November 2016.  The good news is that our students compare well with students anywhere in the world.

If Harlington was a country it would be ranked 2nd in the world in science with only Singapore doing better.  In maths we would be ranked 6th of the 40 countries included in the study.  An extract from the data is shown below.
