revision gcseYear 11 Revision Information Evening

On Tuesday 28th March, 5:30pm-6:30pm, we will be holding a Revision Information Evening for parents and carers of Year 11 students at the Upper Site. This is an exciting opportunity to learn more about how to support your son or daughter in preparing for their exams. It is our intention to offer a range of strategies to enable your son or daughter to maximise their revision time in the lead up to GCSE examinations, with easy to use activities which can be applied across a range of subjects.

Revision materials, timetables and diaries will be on offer for parents and carers to ensure you have every piece of information you need to support your son or daughter. Subject Leaders will also be available on site to discuss any short term concerns or specific subject revision challenges.

In order to arrange refreshments and seating, please complete and return the reply slip below by Friday 24th March, or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .

Yours sincerely

Raising Standards Leader for Year 11

revision gcseGCSE Revision Timetable

With less than 50 academic days for your child left in Year 11 before their summer examinations, I wanted to take this opportunity to draw attention to the variety of revision sessions that are available after school and at lunch times.

These sessions will focus on key skills needed in the exams and important content and should be seen as a compliment to the preparation being done in lessons towards GCSE exams. Please support the school in encouraging your child to attend sessions which you deem as priorities for their education.

Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions regarding the programme of sessions available.

Kind regards,

Mr Millard, Raising Standards Leader for Year 11

RHA smallerYear 11 Revision and Uniform

As Year 11 start their final set of Pre-Public Exams and begin their final run up to their actual exams, there are a couple of points I would like to raise with you.

Revision is key to students achieving the best possible grades in their exams and the school will be doing a number of things to support your sons and daughters with their out of class learning. I am enclosing a letter from Mr Millard about the current after school revision sessions and a programme for the Easter holiday revision will be posted on the website before April.

On Tuesday 28th March we will be running a revision evening for parents and students. During the evening, teachers will run a number of workshops which will be of use to you and your son or daughter during this important but stressful run up to the examination season. The school will write to you with more information in due course.

A few years ago, from this time of year, the school allowed Year 11 to wear their own clothes although still adhering to a 6th Form dress code. The intention behind the move was to help motivate students by treating them as prospective 6th Form students and as more independent young adults. In the past, this approach has worked well with Year 11 feeling a sense of reward for their hard work but also a genuine sense of independence which has been transferred into a positive work ethic.

We would like to trial this approach with the current Year 11 students and, should it prove effective, allow students to wear their own clothes until the end of this academic year. However I feel that you as parents should be consulted and if you have any questions or opinions about this proposal please do let us know by emailing Mrs Francis through the school’s website.

Yours sincerely

Mr S Pullen, Headteacher

Mrs A Francis, Head of Upper School

WG MM 01A Musical Medley at The Winter Gardens, Margate

On Tuesday 07 February 2017, twenty-seven pupils from Y7 to Y13 the Royal Harbour Academy performed in a concert organised for all five schools in the Coastal Academies Trust. Our students gave very strong singing, dance and acting performances.They had to wait over an hour before they could perform as the last school in alphabetical order. 

The Lower School singing group – the Royal Harbour Harmonies – sang their own arrangement of Hold Back The River (James Bay) to great applause from the audience of hundreds.

The Y10 Soul Band performed Proud Mary (Ike and Tina Turner) with great instrumental prowess, fine lead singing and tremendous support from four backing vocalists in a particularly convincing and fast-paced performance.

The Y13 finished off the school performances with a self-penned and very committed sketch based on The Wizard Of Oz. All of the cast acted and sang with strength and were also very well received in the hall.

This was a very successful evening for all five schools taking part. Our own students faced their natural feelings of nervousness and performed to their very best ability on a large stage which many stars have played before them. Their performances allowed all of us associated with the Royal Harbour Academy to feel justifiably proud.

Students from the Royal Harbour Academy were delighted to be awarded the prestigious award of ‘Best Pitch’ at the Annual Teen Tech City Challenge 2017. The venue for this year’s Teen Tech was the magnificent Emirates stadium, home to Arsenal Football Club.

Ten students from year 8 and year 9 attended the annual Teen Tech Conference which allows students to immerse themselves in an array of Tech based challenges that are organised by various Tech Industries including Google, Bloomberg, TFL, Cummins and a host of companies that were looking to inspire the future generation of students into choosing a career in the Tech/Design Technology/STEM sector.
