We are excited to work closely with our prefects and wider leadership team to make HRSF the best place it can be!


Student leadership and voice is central to all that we do here at HRSF. Our prefects will be supporting HRSF with various roles. These include sixth form duties, fundraising campaigns, behaviour mentors and academic tutors.

At HRSF we believe in hard work as we know that our habits determine our future. Well done to all our students who fully prepared for their vocational mock exams this week. This shows real drive and determination and is great preparation for the real vocational exams in January.


Daniel and Sarah delivered a speech during our open evening to audiences of 200+ guests. They did a fantastic job, speaking with clarity and passion, inspiring prospective students and supporting their sixth form. We are so proud of you and excited to see your impact at HRSF.


Congratulations to our two Student Presidents; Daniel and Sarah. These sixth formers embody our values and are fully invested in all that we do here at Harris Rainham Sixth Form.


Thank you to all our sixth formers who volunteered at HRSF open evening. All students conducted themselves professionally and engaged with prospective students and parents to inform them about the subjects we offer and the values we hold. Applications for HRSF 2024 now open!


Our students were highly engaged, eagerly discussing their enthusiasm for undergraduate courses and careers ranging from Dentistry and Engineering to English Literature and Architecture.


This week, some of our most ambitious sixth form students joined the first in a series of Harris Experience Advanced conference calls. The launch event was a preview of the wealth of opportunities aimed at helping our students gain entry to the world’s most selective universities


One week to go...Our open evening is on Tuesday 21st November, 5.30pm-7.30pm. This will be a great opportunity to hear about our values, meet our sixth formers and speak to subject experts about the courses we offer and their entry requirements.We hope to see you there!


We also looked at dry ice seeing how it could be used in spooky theatre productions. The last part of the day was Q&A session. Topics discussed were the structure of courses on offer, accommodation, societies and social clubs and the cost of attending University.


The sixth formers then attended a typical University lecture where a Doctor of Chemistry demonstrated liquid Nitrogen (-195oC), its effect on balloons, and what would happen if you put your hand in it for too long (when your skin peels off it is called ‘degloving’!).


26 HRSF biologists, chemists and physicists attended a series of STEM lectures and workshops at Queen Mary University. These photos show the chemistry students participating in a biomedical lab where students were able to analyse their own electrocardiograms.


Members of our sustainability elective were given a tour of our new sixth form building this morning. A quantity surveyor showed students how our new building complies with ambitious national sustainability targets and answered lots of insightful questions.


A huge thank you to Josh, Sadie and Harry who visited their previous secondary school to deliver a year 11 assembly about Harris Rainham Sixth Form. Each sixth former spoke with confidence and clarity to talk about our values, the courses we offer, and our new building.


Today was the official Federation Oxbridge launch! It was great to join other Harris Federation sixth formers, alongside 26 HRSF students, to understand a little more about applying to Oxbridge and the preparation required, as well as to hear from Harris/Oxbridge alumni.
