Our school is a community of happy, well-disciplined and bright young men, served by an experienced and enthusiastic staff who have a trusted track record of helping our pupils develop into well rounded individuals with excellent academic records.
We feel passionately about wanting our pupils to enjoy their time at the Harvey and do all we can to help them develop into self-assured, articulate and helpful young men, ready and equipped to go on to the next stage of their careers.
We will encourage your son to “work hard, play hard” but also to show care and compassion for his fellow pupils. We have high expectations, but with the outstanding quality of teaching and wide range of extra-curricular activities offered by the school, we ensure that every pupil is able to identify and develop to a high standard his particular talents, whether they be in the academic, sporting, creative or other fields.

The Under 15 Basketball squad swept all challengers aside with a dominant display in the Shepway School Games League, finishing as champions with a 100% record.
We started poorly in game 3 against Pent Valley and were 6-2 down at half time, But a defensive change with Mason Roach coming in saw us rediscover our authority. Harvey scored two quick baskets and levelled the game early in the second half, then went on to dominate the scoreboard. The game finished 20-6 with points from Efrem M, Sean R, Toby H and Hunter E-R.
The final game against Marsh Academy was a superb team display. Efrem M scoring as usual, but this time dominating in defence with some some great assists on the front foot too. Greg K found his shooting range with aplomb, Sean R and Toby H playing the all-round team game just as required. Hunter E-R showed some contest-style ball handling to the crowd's delight.
Final score 23-2.
Winning Roster: Sean R (c), Efrem M, Toby H, Greg K, Hunter E-R, Mason R, Chhewang R-M.
Well done boys, I was very proud of your discipline and sportsman-like behaviour too.
On Tuesday 24th February, the Harvey Grammar Year 9 football team beat Dover Grammar 3-1 to gain a place in this years County final at Maidstone United.
It was a tough match, at half time we were 0-1 down to a scruffy goal conceded against the run of play. In the second half we battled and worked hard. Oliver M penalty brought the scores level at 1-1 going into the final 10 minuets. Shortly after Kester L ran clear and buried his shot in the bottom corner to make it 2-1. However, we needed a third goal to kill the game off and Tom G determination paid off as he robbed the keeper of possession and placed the ball calmly into an empty goal.
We now play Borden Grammar School in the Final on Saturday 21st March.

On Monday 2nd February the Box Clever Theatre company performed their popular 'Introduction to Shakespeare' as part of the work on the Bard studied by Year 7 and Year 8 boys. The performance was dynamic, fun and informative, with pupils learning more about a range of Shakespeare's plays, his language and stagecraft. Many pupils became directly involved, as there was a strong interactive element to the day. At the end of the event, the actors made some very favourable comments about the boys' engagement and behaviour in the performances. Well done to all who took part.
