Why come to Harris Girls' Academy Bromley Sixth Form?
For the past 2 and a half years as Principal of Harris Girls’ Academy Bromley, I have watched our sixth form grow and thrive.
Last September, we opened a brand new and state-of-the-art building. I would be the last person to argue that a great building is the be all and end all of a good school, but our sixth formers are really enjoying having their own space for studying and socialising. It is fantastic to see such a large proportion now continuing their education with us until age-18.
Alongside their committed academic study, students here are also encouraged to participate in a range of enrichment opportunities, from academic lectures to volunteering at local primary schools.
Our sixth form is a campus of the much larger Harris Federation Sixth Form. Our students benefit from the scale of being part of something so much bigger: there’s hardly a subject not on offer and sixth form can move between campuses if they need to.
But we are also a small, supportive site with very close relationships between staff and students. Class sizes remain small, allowing teachers to give both A Level and vocational students the specific academic guidance they need.
In addition to providing exceptional teaching, we are a friendly and welcoming academy; teachers know students incredibly well, and there is always a listening ear!
If our sixth form sounds like a place that could suit your son or daughter (we are co-educational in the sixth form), please give us a call. We would be happy to invite you on a tour of the school and to answer any questions you or your child might have.
