Every student that attends Harlington School is equally important with different needs and aspirations that should be nurtured. As an inclusive school, we recognise, celebrate and embrace diversity in all its forms.

We try to keep siblings together where possible. A student’s school lanyard will show the colour of their house, and each House is run by a Deputy Headteacher or

- Da Vinci House Blue Lanyards Mrs A Maidment
- Mandela House Red Lanyards Mr R Walsh
Students participate in a number of Inter-House competitions throughout the year, which include drama, music and sporting events. Students earn points for their participation in these and other extra-curricular activities. Students are rewarded with “Achievement” points in lessons and for their termly effort grades.

Students have one House Assembly per half term and one year group assembly per week. House assemblies are scheduled at the beginning of each half term and recognise and celebrate achievement, along with restating the values and ethos of the House. Students from all year groups in the House attend together.
