About H3 Federation
Harmood School (previously part of CCfL) is proud to be a founding partner of the new H3 Federation, together with Heath School and Haverstock School.
The federation grew from a close collaboration which began in January 2022. It proved very successful, with each school and their students reporting real benefits. In April 2023, after a consultation with parents, students, governors, staff and public, the H3 Federation was formally created under the leadership of Executive Headteacher James Hadley.
Each of the 3 schools in the federation retains its own unique character and its own Head of School. Each school retains a separate budget and is inspected independently by Ofsted. By working together, the schools are able to keep the best elements of their independence, while sharing each others’ skills and specialist knowledge.
Chair of Governors, Alison Lowton says, “This great partnership really widens access to services for all our children. Working closely together, we can offer more opportunities than any one single school.”
Vice-Chair of Governors, Janet Grauberg adds, “The federation makes it easier to find a school place that fits the needs of students who, for whatever reason, are not getting on in a mainstream Camden school. By having Harmood special school, Heath School pupil referral unit, and specialist provision under one governance and leadership team, we make it more likely to find the right place for every student to re-engage in education and learn the skills they need for work and life.”

‘Our schools are made much stronger by working together as a collaborative family. I'm very much looking forward to leading Haverstock, Heath and Harmood Schools on the next exciting stage of the journey, as we power up with the new H3 Federation!’
