Introduction by the Principal
I am very pleased to write the introduction to the Sixth Form Prospectus which, as a thriving and dynamic Year 12 and 13, is the cornerstone of The Harefield Academy. We aim to offer courses that will allow all successful students to flourish following Year 11. We define “successful students” as those who work hard; are involved in extra-curricular activities; support the community and pursue their dreams. Our course offer recognises the wide range of interests of our students and their aspirations. We aim to offer “something for everyone” including those who aspire to make Oxbridge applications and those who will enter the world of work following Sixth Form. All of our students are important and each will be given a great deal of care and support. Our students enjoy a high level of teaching and access to excellent facilities. The addition of the boarding house, which opened in September 2011, means that some students can take full advantage of our 24/7 offer. The Sixth Form of 2014 will join us at the start of the tenth year of The Harefield Academy. Each year our Sixth Form has grown and developed and I have no doubt that it will continue to grow from strength to strength!
Introduction by the Head Boy and Head Girl
Welcome to the Harefield Academy Sixth Form Prospectus. It can sometimes seem daunting moving school at such a crucial time in your education. However, the state-of-the-art building and facilities that we offer our students is backed up by a friendly and safe atmosphere, which helps to develop students and bring them closer to achieving their goals. The academy has so much more than just good lessons and teaching to offer, it has provided us with many opportunities to develop as people. The staff here are so approachable and easy to talk to for extra help and support in subjects, and their doors are always open outside of the usual school hours. We are all very proud of our Academy. Visitors often comment on the immaculate condition of the building; this is because it is truly respected by all students and it still looks as good to us now, as it did when it first opened. The Harefield Academy is like no other secondary school as it combines hard working A-Level students with talented Sports Excellence students. We are a close-knit family in the Sixth Form, many of us have made friends for life and the Post 16 room has a friendly atmosphere. It is very common for past Sixth Form students to return here in their free time, to catch up with staff and to work and advise the current students. We are proud to have been selected by the students and staff of The Harefield Academy to represent them as Head Boy & Girl. We would truly recommend this Academy to you, as it will always take extra steps to accommodate your needs and help you gain the skills required to excel in your future.
