Headteacher’s Welcome

I would like to extend a warm welcome to all of you to the official website of Harton Academy. As the new headteacher, I am thrilled to have the opportunity to connect with you through this platform and provide you with important information about our school.

Our website serves as a valuable resource for parents, students, and the wider community. Here, you will find a wealth of information about our school’s vision, mission, and values, as well as details about our curriculum, extracurricular activities, and support services. We believe in transparency and open communication, and our website is designed to keep you informed about all the exciting things happening at Harton Academy.

One of the key features of our website is that it provides access to important documents, such as school policies, newsletters, and event calendars. We encourage all parents to make use of this valuable tool to stay engaged and involved in your child’s education.

In addition to providing information, our website also showcases the achievements and successes of our students. You will find galleries of photos and videos highlighting their accomplishments in academics, sports, arts, and other areas. We take great pride in the achievements of our students, and we believe that celebrating their successes is an important part of building a positive school culture.

Furthermore, our website features a dedicated section for prospective parents, where you can learn more about our admissions process, take virtual tours of our facilities, and get a glimpse into the vibrant and inclusive community that is Harton Academy. We understand that choosing the right school for your child is a significant decision, and we want to provide you with all the information you need to make an informed choice.

I encourage you to explore our website and familiarise yourself with its various sections. If you have any questions or suggestions for improvement, please do not hesitate to reach out to us. We value your feedback and are committed to continuously enhancing our website to better serve the needs of our community.

Once again, I extend a warm welcome to all of you to the Harton Academy website. I am excited to embark on this journey with you and work together to provide an exceptional education for your children.

To provide an outstanding education for our students and to be a beacon of hope in our community. We aim to inspire a passion for lifelong learning and to produce decent, caring and responsible citizens who are committed to inclusion.

Harton Academy is committed to educating and developing young people, so they are active, eat healthily and treat all others with respect. We believe that positive emotional health and well-being are the cornerstones to becoming well-rounded and successful individuals who contribute positively to society. The Academy is entirely committed to ensuring our students learn the full range of Personal, Social and Health Education topics, and that this is embedded in everything we do on a daily basis.

Our commitment

Harton Academy is committed to addressing the points raised in our Ofsted inspection, March 2022 (published, June 2022). The School Improvement Plan, which encompasses a wide variety of essential targets, will demonstrate that we have addressed Ofsted’s targets to improve.
