Welcome to the Harrow Way Community School website, and thank you for showing interest in our school. We are very proud of Harrow Way and we hope that we have conveyed something of its qualities on this website. We hope that we have provided the information you require but if there is anything else you need to know please feel free to telephone or email the school.
Whatever our students aspire to be, we are here to support them. We value each of them, not just for who they are but also for what they can become. Ambitious for them, we challenge them to aim for careers of significance, influence and service, gaining the results needed to work at the best colleges, universities and companies. But we also want them to live lives that are personally enriched and fulfilled and that is why we also seek to develop in them a love of the arts, culture, sport, public service, charity and community involvement.
We believe that every student can succeed, every single one of them without exception, as long as they’re given the right spark to ignite their passion. We also believe that students should enjoy their time at school; that enjoyment is the basis of success. We see it as our task to draw out of them all that is good within them: their personal qualities, their interests and their talents. None of them should leave school without knowing what their talents are, without achieving something significant with these talents while they’re with us and without a clear pathway to show how they can further develop them when they leave us so they can find success and fulfilment in their lives.
All of this is possible because of the quality of our staff. Our most recent Ofsted report praised the quality of teaching and learning. What you’ll find here at Harrow Way are teachers who love their subject, who love teaching it and who want students to love it too. They’re ready to show them the beauty of art, music and literature, the excitement of sport and drama, the possibilities of technology, computing and design, the magic of science, the power of language and number, the wonders of our world and the mysteries of the past.
We believe in equality of opportunity and want you to be able to participate fully whenever you visit the school. Please let us know beforehand of any special arrangements that may need to be in place for this to be the case. We have two designated parking bays for disabled people; one at the main reception and one near the exit gate.
