Lower Site News

Welcome to Lower Site

The Lower Site of The Royal Harbour Academy offers unique opportunities for all our students in Years 7 and 8 and we would be delighted to show you around to share the experiences being enjoyed every day by our young people.

All of our teaching and support staff have created an environment where the focus is on building and developing the knowledge and skills gained in their Primary Schools.

The overwhelming feeling when walking around the school with colleagues, students and visitors, reflects our caring, friendly and nurturing culture, and this, together with the wide range of enrichment opportunities enjoyed by all, makes our Lower Site the best possible place to make the transition into secondary education.

Please come and visit us and see us on a working day – even if this is on a wet windy Friday afternoon. We look forward to welcoming you and would be delighted to share with you a glimpse of everyday life at The Royal Harbour Academy

Message from Head of Site

Starting secondary school is one of the most significant moments in any young person's life and I am proud to lead a fantastic team of staff who believe in supporting students through a nurturing approach.

I am proud of the transformational changes that have been made to the ethos, culture, curriculum and learning here at the school.  The transition from Primary school is seamless for our students and they make fantastic progress with us.

-Kris Lasslett, Head of Lower Site

Lower Site Team

As Head of Year 7 it is a privilege to oversee our students transition from primary school, helping them to adapt to life at The Royal Harbour Academy. Throughout Year 7 we strive for the highest standards and expectations, setting the standard expected at The Royal Harbour Academy.

Michelle Smith

Head of Year 7

As Head of Year 8 I am very fortunate to have a talented and compassionate team which allows us to build on all the progress made by our Year 7 students. We strive to instil our high standards and expectations through teamwork, personal development and growth during the year to ensure our students are fully prepared for their transition to the Upper Site. We encourage our students to take on additional responsibility and hold an election for prefects, Head Girl and Head Boy to help support all students and staff at The Royal Harbour Academy.
