      Harlington Upper School is a large, successful upper school with a strong local reputation for high levels of student achievement. The school was established in 1974 and has sustained very good levels of performance for many years. Our Ofsted inspection of October 2013 confirmed that we are a good school with many strengths. We are now poised and ready to grow our already successful school into an outstanding one. 

      We have a unique location in Central Bedfordshire. We are placed in the heart of a rural environment but have strong urban links. Harlington is one mile from junction 12 of the M1 and has a train station with commuter routes to London and the Midlands. 

      There are currently approximately 1240 students in the school, including 310 in the sixth-form. Students join the school in year 9 after attending one of three main feeder middle schools. 

      Our priorities for improvement are focused firmly on developing teaching, learning within a developmental and supportive environment.
