Our mission statement is "The Royal Harbour Academy is a proud community built upon success, high aspirations and a global outlook."
Our aim is that every student at the Royal Harbour Academy gains life skills and qualifications that will allow them to lead happy and fulfilled lives whether their next steps are in education, employment or further training. It is good to know that year on year all of our students either stay on in our sixth form, go to other local schools or secure full time employment in the workplace. Having previously been Headteacher at Dane Court Grammar School, I am pleased that the school is part of the Coastal Academies Trust, which not only includes Dane Court Grammar School but a number of other local schools. This provides benefits to both students and staff through, amongst other things, collaboration and exchange of good practice. Like myself, the Trust is determined that every child has real success and the schools work collaboratively to achieve this aim.
The cyanotype workshops involved students learning about the earliest form of photography before creating their own stunning prints. The Royal Harbour Academy has also been generously gifted not just the cyanotype papers and other resources needed but additionally the cyanotype lamp so they can continue this technique with students in the future without needing to loan one.
Is your visit necessary or can it be completed via Google meet or phone? In the vast majority of cases meetings can be conducted by Google meet or equivalent. We can support this by booking the meeting and sending you an invite.
Top performing students include: Daisy Supple, who secured 9 GCSEs including four 9s, an 8, and a 7. When Daisy received her results she said, “I am absolutely over the moon with my results. I was getting so nervous with the new grading system introduced but I’m so happy. I am planning to go to Sixth Form at the Royal Harbour Academy to study the International Baccalaureate Career-related Programme, with English, Public Services and Anthropology as my chosen subjects. I can’t wait.”
There were some excellent individual performances: Imogen Ferguson passed the full IBCP, gaining a 6 in English Literature, a 5 in History, a B grade in Reflective Project and Pass in Japanese, Service Learning and Personal & Professional Studies. Imogen has also completed a BTEC Level 3 extended diploma in Public Services and achieved a D*D*D*. During her time in Sixth Form, Imogen has been an outstanding member of The Royal Harbour Academy School. She has worked exceptionally hard within her studies and has been a true ambassador of the school. Imogen has been a head prefect throughout Sixth Form and excelled in every area of responsibility, from leading regular enrichment and lessons to younger year groups to organising and leading charity events. Imogen is going on to study International and Legal Studies with a year abroad at the University of Kent.
Your exam results will be available for collection on Thursday the 20th August between 10am and 3pm. You will be able to book a slot on our online booking system (www.ticketsource.co.uk/the-royal-harbour-academy). These slots are 20 minutes and family and friends are welcome although we will ask them to wait outside and not to enter the building due to social distancing measures.
The latest instruction from the Department for Education is that all students should be back in school from September although when in school students should be kept, as much as possible, in separate year groups or ‘bubbles’.
