The Harpenden Consortium Schools

In order to increase the opportunities available to all students in Harpenden schools, there is collaboration between the three local secondary schools, St George’s, Roundwood Park and Sir John Lawes.  This will mean that students will be able to study an increased range of subjects by attending another school for one of their choices.

Students are expected to make their own way to the Consortium School from St George’s.  A minimum movement time of 10 minutes is built into our arrangements to allow students movement time between the different school sites, but subjects are usually timetabled to be first lesson in the morning or after a break.  We will look at the student’s timetable to see if moving class (where possible) provides more time to get to their Consortium lesson.  If a student believes there is too short a time span to make this journey then they must make other arrangements to make sure they arrive on time, and accept any cost this may incur, or choose another course.

Please be aware that the timings of lessons do not match exactly and are as follows:

All students who elect to study a Harpenden Consortium subject are expected to commit to the academic standards and discipline policies set by their Consortium School in order to thrive in their chosen subject.  In addition, it should be noted that:

  • Students are required to attend the Consortium School’s lessons even if their Home School has a different arrangement (such as an Inset Day, early closure, different term dates etc).
  • Students are required to register their attendance by signing in and out at the Consortium School.  This is especially important for health and safety reasons.
  • Students must catch up on any missed work.
  • Students are expected to ensure that they arrange a parental consultation at the Consortium School’s Parents’ Evening. 
  • Students must comply with the current policy on the Acceptable Use of the Computer System at the Harpenden Consortium Schools. 
  • Students are expected to maintain a smart appearance, in accordance with their Home School Dress Code/Uniform Rules.
  • Students should ensure that they make themselves aware of the Fire Evacuation, Lockdown and other relevant emergency procedures at the Consortium School.
  • Whilst the Consortium Schools exchange key data, parents should ensure that they contact the Data Manager at the Consortium School so that any special and/or medical requirements are immediately recorded on the student's record.

Consortium students and parents must comply with Harpenden Consortium Schools General Expectations Agreement (please refer to the Information Document for Consortium Students below).
