Headteacher’s Welcome

Message from Mr Mountford

Harwich and Dovercourt High School is a vibrant, caring school serving the community. Every student is welcomed, challenged and supported to achieve their full potential and every student has opportunities and experiences to ensure their schooling is fulfilling and enjoyable.

At Harwich and Dovercourt High School we believe in partnerships between students, staff and the home. We believe in responsibility, ambition and commitment, where no challenge is too great and where great futures are nurtured.

Our goal is for every student to be proud of their efforts and achievement and for every parent and carer to be proud of their child, school and community. Our pledge is to work tirelessly in the pursuit of excellence.

N Mountford

Year 11,12 and 13 Easter Revision

School breaks up for the Easter holidays at 3pm on Friday 4th April. Tuesday 22nd April is a staff training day and so students return to school on Wednesday 23rd April at the usual time.
Easter revision is a highly effective way to improve GCSE/BTEC/AS/A Level grades. Students should see the Easter period as an opportunity to revise and prepare for their exams. Teachers are offering revision and coursework sessions to assist and support them. Please click here for further details
