STUDENTS can also now study A-levels at Harris School in Rugby.

The move has been made possible through a partnership with Warwickshire College and will see the secondary school in Harris Drive offer students the chance to take A-levels in subjects such as biology, geography and religious studies.

Headteacher Steve Dobson said: “This is an exciting development for everybody at Harris as we enter this new era both with students who have been with us up to 16 and those who are coming from other schools. Warwickshire College has a great reputation and we look forward to working with them to ensure all those who have chosen A-levels at Harris fulfil their potential and move on successfully to the next stage of their careers.

“We believe this is the right time to be building for the future and that this partnership is the best way to continue our progress and become a school for the full 11-18 age range.”

The school hopes that A-level teaching will be the first step towards it establishing its own sixth form in the near future.
