HARLINGTON UPPER SCHOOL

    Curriculum Vision Statement

     

    The Harlington curriculum is unashamedly ambitious for all students. We believe that every child is entitled to a broad and balanced curriculum that tells the story of ‘the best that has been thought and said’ around the world. We place equal importance on the academic, and personal and social development of our students: we want to prepare them for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences that life has to offer.

    Our curriculum is designed to develop thinkers: students who can empathise and evaluate, critique and construct and so enter adult life able to achieve their potential and make a positive contribution to society. The taught curriculum encourages respect for all: people, places and the wider environment.

    Our curriculum encourages the accumulation of a breadth and depth of knowledge across subjects, not only for its extrinsic reward, but for its intrinsic value.

    We believe all students are capable of excellence, achieved through hard work, self-discipline and constant curiosity.
