Student Testimonials

We asked a few of our sixth formers to say why they choose to come to the Sixth Form at Harris Garrard Academy and how it is benefitting their studies.


"I like how we are integrated. Every year has equal opportunities ask one another for help. We also have a close connection to one another, so that if there is a problem we can tell one another."


"I enjoy how I am able to get one-to-one help in my subject from the small classes, which allows me to fully understand my work."


"I like that the Year 13s acceptance of Year 12s is good, and that the bond between both years is strong."


"I enjoy Sixth Form life at Harris Garrard, because I can be independent and flourish around other supportive members, growing both as a person and in my studies."


Garrard P16 17


"I like the sense of community. Every time I come to school, I feel like I'm part of a family."


"My first day in Sixth Form was exciting. The teachers and students were very concerned about us and they made sure we are in the right state of mind."


"The Sixth Form is is very well organised and encourages you to plan your day and  use it effectively. I am also exposed to many opportunities to develop practical skills."


"What I love most about this Sixth Form is that all our opinions are valued and suggestions made by pupils are actually given some thought instead of just being ignored."


"The Sixth Form is an incredible step up from GCSEs, in that it pushes you past limits you would never think you could overcome."


"What I like about the Sixth Form is that you get treated like you are a young adult."
