Despite having to work under incredibly challenging circumstances due to the coronavirus pandemic and subsequent lockdown, our students have still recorded some fantastic A Level results, achieving a 99% pass rate for the third year in a row.
Essex & Herts Air Ambulance (EHAAT) has chosen the designs for two sculptures which will have pride of place outside the charity’s airbases at North Weald and Earls Colne.
Kind-hearted staff and students at Harlow College have come together to support their local community by fundraising for local foodbanks.
Information for A Level learners (Not AS year 1) and all GCSE student who are under 18.
Dear GCSE and A Level student, parent or carer, today the government has released more details on how GCSE and A Levels for the summer exam series 2020 will be graded, please see the guidance:
With this in mind we are advising you that the College will continue with online learning for all our GCSE and A Level learners up until Thursday 7th May 2020. Our online learning will recommence on Monday 20th April 2020, in the meantime enjoy your two week Easter break.
We received additional guidance from government late last night regarding school and college closures, and expectations for supporting vulnerable students and the children of critical workers.
The government has announced that Harlow College, along with another 17 schools and colleges, has been awarded the prestigious EdTech Demonstrator status.
A collaborative approach across different sectors has enabled staff at Harlow College to begin the manufacture of vital personal protective equipment (PPE) for frontline NHS staff.
Harlow College understands that this is a very uncertain time for everyone who was expecting to sit exams this summer. We know that students and parents may be worried about how that might affect plans to start a course with us in September.
You will still be able to take up a place at College next academic year and we will follow government guidelines to ensure that you can progress to the right course of study.
The Department for Education has outlined plans to award students a calculated grade for their GCSEs and A levels this summer and an exam option for those that wish to take it as soon as is reasonably possible after schools and colleges reopen.
We will respond quickly and fairly to all further guidance from the government to ensure students are able to continue with their education with the minimum disruption and are not disadvantaged.
Harlow College will continue to operate a limited admissions service to ensure online applications and telephone interviews can continue during this closure period. You can access course information and apply online by visiting https://www.harlow-college.ac.uk/apply for Harlow College and http://www.stanstedairportcollege.ac.uk/about/course-guide-2019-20 for Stansted Airport College.
You will have no doubt seen the news about early years, school and college closures from next Monday 23rd March 2020, other than to particular vulnerable groups and key worker children.
Educational establishments all over the country are currently working through the implications and awaiting to receive further details from government. We do not currently have guidance on what constitutes a key worker or arrangements for vulnerable groups. Please bear with us, as we will be unable to answer any questions until we have received further details.
As soon as we have these we will send information out to parents, carers and students. For those students who were due to sit exams and take assessments, there will be plans from government in place for you to get your qualifications. We are awaiting further information and will share this as soon as available. It is still our current intention, as communicated earlier in the week, to move study online from Monday 23rd March - keep learning and stay resilient.
For those apprentices who were due to sit exams and take assessments, there will be plans from government in place for you to gain your Apprenticeship. We are awaiting further information and will share as soon as available. We are also aware that some apprentices have been made redundant because of the financial insecurity for business - if you are in this position, please make contact with us at and we will work out how we can support you to continue learning to gain a qualification. Keep learning and stay resilient.
