About Us

Headteacher’s Welcome

The Harleston Sancroft Academy is at the heart of the local community providing education, experiences and opportunities for children aged 3-16. As a school, relationships come first which reflects the Church of England Vision for Education. We educate for wisdom, knowledge, skills, hope and aspiration and it is these characteristics that underpin the decisions that are made daily, ensuring we create an environment that supports our school vision of

‘Life in all Its Fullness’

(John 10:10)

I hope you will enjoy finding out more about this unique and very special community and gain a sense of how and why children and adults are supported and encouraged to flourish in their daily lives. The Harleston Sancroft Academy is full of learning, full of love, full of compassion and full of friendship. A place where everyone is celebrated. We are delighted to be active members of St Benet’s Multi Academy Trust and we recognise that working in collaboration and through effective partnerships, our community is enhanced.

To arrange a visit to either the Primary or Secondary Phase, please contact the school office. We would be delighted to welcome you and to provide you with the true Harleston Sancroft experience.

I feel valued as a member of staff. I like the fact the school has a clear vision, a vision that I feel a part of.

Every single person who works at the school contributes to who I am. It truly is a special place where we are all one big family.
