It is our great pleasure to welcome you to the Harperbury Free School website.

Here at Harperbury, we combine traditional values with the most innovative teaching, based on research from around the country.

Our aim is to develop our students so that they are excellent learners, curious to enquire, equipped with the skills to investigate and understand. More than that, we will prepare them for their future lives so that they leave school with the skills needed in the workplace, a strong sense of responsibility, a moral compass, and the perspective to understand and take on their individual role. We will enrich their learning experience with a range of activities – sporting, creative and practical.

Harperbury aims to provide an education as good as that found in the very best schools, where pupils are nurtured as individuals, challenged to achieve their best and supported in all their endeavours. We aim for academic excellence – the highest exam results, entry to the best universities, worthwhile jobs and to be exemplary world citizens.

A Harperbury education will be exciting, challenging and fun – from the team-building trip to real world tasks, from ancient history to computer coding. Our students will require resourcefulness and energy and our teachers will employ imagination and flair.

The first Year 7 pupils will walk through the doors in September 2015 to begin their secondary education. Come and join us at Harperbury – where life’s journey begins.
