This question is personal. For some, it’s the workload. For some, it’s travel. For some, it’s Saturday school (though this doesn’t apply to you). Some say the teachers so there’s no definitive answer for that .

Currently we don't have lockers but it is something that we are constantly looking into and something that we are desperate to get. However, we do have coat hangers and if you get along well with some teachers they might even be kind enough for you to leave something in there classroom.

For maths I would recommend the Casio Classwiz fx-991EX as it becomes especially useful when you start statistics.
Over the summer between year 11 and 12 I read quite a few books (non fiction and fiction), went through my GCSE notes for the subjects I was going to take (for subjects that build on GCSE knowledge), did the homework set by the teachers at Harris (eg. The Bridging the gap maths booklet is super useful) and did some online courses etc. There are also some bridging the gap CGP books that help with A Level preparation as well.

You don't have to pay for textbooks !


The Senate are currently making survival guides you will get on induction day and these include our top tips. Personally, my top tip would be to make sure you keep up to date with work from the start because A Levels are full of content and if you miss something or don't understand something it will definitely come back to bite. Another tip would be to make loads of friends, embrace all the opportunities Harris has and read a lot.

Feel free to ask us more questions if you have any!

Give the school a ring once you have gotten your results. If there is space and you have gotten the required grades to get in, they will invite you in for an informal chat. A lot of people do get into the school this way.
