Upper Site News

Welcome to Upper Site

Being part of one school makes the transition from the Lower Site to the Upper Site easy.  While we keep some of the academic structures from the Lower Site, subject learning becomes more specialised as students move towards their public exams in Year 11.

On the Upper Site, we love to celebrate success and we actively encourage joining in and embracing all we have to offer, both in and out of the classroom here at The Royal Harbour Academy.

Message from Head of Site

Our expectations at The Royal Harbour Academy are high and teams of specialist subject teachers offer engaging and interesting lessons which allow all to make fantastic progress. 


Home to our older students, the Upper Site fosters an environment that is warm, welcoming and allows our students the freedom to develop into responsible, ambitious and well rounded young people, ready to take on the world!


We want all of our students to leave understanding the relevance of their studies to the wider world and to have a plan for a bright future. The school is dedicated to giving our students the absolute best and we look forward to welcoming you in Year 9 and beyond.


- Sam Wall, Head of Upper Site

As Head of Year 9 we welcome students to the upper site where we build on the foundation from lower and help prepare them for their GCSE's in Year 10. We focus strongly on students' independence and confidence providing a range of enrichment opportunities and form activities.

Mr G Watkins

As Head of Year 10 we support the students in the beginning of their journey through their GCSEs and begin the stepping stones to a fulfilling career of their choice and look to encourage the students to become positive citizens in their communities. 

Mr D Cater

As Head of 11 the focus is on supporting all our students during their examinations and ensuring everyone has a clear post 16 destination. The tutor team continues to work closely with their tutees, mentoring regularly and ensuring everyone has access to the necessary revision materials and resources to be successful.
