Head Teachers Message

We are a vibrant school on the east side of Southampton serving a catchment area encompassing the edges of Bitterne and the whole of Harefield estate.

Harefield is a school where your child comes first. We seek to keep all children safe and happy, working together with parents/carers and the community.

Harefield is an Ofsted graded “outstanding” school. Every family’s co-operation has made Harefield a successful, happy school where pupils succeed and genuinely enjoy their day at school.

Our leadership team has worked alongside all stakeholders to renew the school vision, values and ethos in order to provide a collective understanding of 'why we are here'.

Pupil engagement and enjoyment in learning is at the core of everything we do. With this, we are determined to ensure that all children achieve the best possible progress across the Curriculum.

Our pupils take PRIDE in their learning, behaviour and our school community.
