The last pic, a seemingly decrepit old computer? This was the world's first web server, marking the very beginning of what we know today as the World Wide Web. It first went online over 25 years ago at CERN, laying the foundation for the development of the internet as we know it.


Mr. Adams has unapologetically taken the liberty of sharing some nerdy and amazing photos from the computer section at the Science Museum! From technological innovations to really nerdy stuff, our Year 8 students are having a blast exploring the world of science and technology.


🦖 While Year 8 is exploring the wonders of science at the Science Museum, another group is stepping back in time at the Natural History Museum! They've even spotted a T-Rex dressed as Santa. Who said learning can't be festive? 🎅


🔬 Year 8 are off to the Science Museum today as part of our character education program! We're excited for them to explore the wonders of science and technology. Stay tuned for updates on their educational adventure. 🚀

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.

"My time at HGA sixth form was nothing short of great, but it didn’t come without its challenges. What made it great was the constant support I had every step of the way, not only from the sixth form leaderships team but also from my teachers. I think what made it work so well was the communication and relationships we all built. The last two years I spent there were incredible and I will be forever grateful for all the sixth form has done for me."

Year 13 student (2022-2023)

"Spending the last two years doing my A levels at Harris Garrard Academy has been a pleasure. I can confidently say that I received high quality teaching that was personalised and organised. Despite the personal challenges I faced during that time, the level and quality of support from the sixth form staff and the school not only warms my heart but has allowed me to leave with everything I needed to continue on my educational journey. HGA provided an atmosphere that made it easy to come to school every day and work at my best but still enjoy those years of my life. Making some unforgettable memories such as trips to Thorpe Park."

Year 13 student (2022-2023)

"My time at HGA has been such a great experience that I will never forget. Being able to meet some amazing people who have now become very close friends has been such a pleasure. It’s been a bit of a bumpy ride but having all the support from the teachers, whether it was something with school work or how I was personally, has made this journey so worth it."
