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.
Ethos & Aims
Virtual Open Evenings
Conall Islip – Deputy Head Student – Prefects
Currently I study A levels in Biology, Chemistry and Physics, along with an Extended Project Qualification. I am responsible for the running of the school council. This means that I am going to be organising discussions and meetings with students and staff to ensure that the views of all at Harlington are represented – students must be central to the choices made at Harlington. Before my time at Harlington comes to an end my aim is to increase the level of student involvement at Harlington and for students to be involved in as many decision making processes that we can.
Michelle Danga- Head Student
I study A level Chemistry, Biology and Geography. As Head Student a large part of my role is organising the rest of the Student Leadership Team, helping delegate certain tasks such as doing boards in the Common Room and other Sixth Form areas, to leading the different committees. Before the end of the school year, I would definitely like to see an increase of intermingling between year groups. We are starting to see that happen with things like Black History Month and prefects, but I would like to get a better sense of community here in the school before the end of the year. That is one thing that I would like to make my mark on.

The geography department said their goodbyes to year 13 this week. They have been an amazing group, with several going onto university to study geography or related courses. Wishing them every success in their exams and their future lives and hope that they stay in touch. https://t.co/fnnqWEzZi4
The last few months, year 10 students have visited the Field Study Centre at Amersham to study the River Chess, year 11 have studied urban inequalities in Milton Keynes and year 12 have visited Bedford to study urban geography. #geography #educationalvisits https://t.co/J2GKBsaLlq
