Harington School opened in September 2015. Harington is a free school offering high quality post-16 education within Rutland with a clear academic focus; one that provides an academic curriculum that holds the key facilitator subjects at its core and enrichment activities that are particularly attractive to universities and employers. Harington School is a first rate learning environment, judged outstanding in all categories by Ofsted (January 2017).
Students benefit from being taught by a highly committed, experienced and talented teaching staff who are all subject specialists. Students are actively encouraged to engage in all the other opportunities available to ensure they leave as well-rounded and ambitious young adults, providing them with the best chance of being accepted by the most prestigious universities in the country, including Oxford, Cambridge, and those within the Russell Group.
In November we moved into our brand new facility, located on the Catmose College campus. Students benefit enormously through being based within our brand new four million pound building. Built over two floors, the Harington building comprises sixteen classrooms, four specialist science labs, music and art facilities and a number of seminar rooms. Students have access to a number of spaces for private study, each with their own computers. Students can use their own devices freely within the School through our fully integrated IT system. At the heart of Harington School is a large hall area that is used for weekly assemblies alongside presentations from a range of outside speakers.
