Harris Academies
All Academies in our Federation aim to transform the lives of the students they serve by bringing about rapid improvement in examination results, personal development and aspiration.

Curriculum

Welcome to Harris Academy Bromley’s Curriculum Information Page.

Academically, Harris Girls' Academy Bromley is one of the most successful schools in the country. With a Provisional Progress 8 of 1.09, our progress is amongst the very best of schools in the country and we believe that this is a result of high quality teaching, advice and guidance, alongside a carefully designed curriculum. We encourage the girls to explore as many subjects as possible at Key Stage 3, before specialising at Key Stages 4 and 5 and believe that it is important for the girls to study a language and humanities alongside other subjects such as Art, Drama, Photography, Classics and Latin. The girls are guided and supported to ensure that the subjects that they choose to study at GCSE and at A-level, give them the best choice about what they want to do in the future; whether that is to go off to a Russell Group university or into employment or training. We review the curriculum every year in order to ensure that we have a suite of courses that will inspire and challenge, as well as create opportunities for success.

Alongside the main curriculum, there is an extensive Enrichment Programme for all key stages. The Enrichment Programme offers a broad and interesting variety of activities before and after the Academy day, which aims to extend and develop what the students study during the day. The girls are given incredible opportunities for visits and we are very proud of the fact that the girls not only learn during lesson time, but also through performance, in productions, on school visits and through our many academic lectures. 

Students are exposed to information regarding British values throughout various aspects of school life. This includes learning through the assembly and tutor programme, which reflects on current events in the world, as well as through enrichment activities, charity events and external speakers.

Key Stage 3 Curriculum

The Key Stage 3 curriculum is followed by Years 7 and 8 and is designed to provide depth and breadth of study whilst ensuring that appropriate time can be devoted to Mathematics, English and Science. Our intention is to give students a ‘taste’ of as many subjects as possible, whilst preparing them for and informing them about their GCSE options. Literacy and numeracy skills are developed in every subject and across the curriculum.

All girls in Year 7 study a language which they will then continue to study until GCSE. Where appropriate, girls may pick up a second, additional language in Year 9. Design Technology includes Food Technology, Textiles and Product Design. All students study Physical Education for 2 periods a week and competitions between faculties and with other schools is encouraged.

Key Stage 4 Curriculum

The Key Stage 4 curriculum is followed by Years 9 – 11. All students will study Mathematics, English, Science, PE and Religious Education in accordance with the grid below and the vast majority will study a humanities and a modern foreign language. The list of optional subjects is extensive and will give the girls a real opportunity to experience a subject that they may then want to go off and study at university.

Key Stage 5 Curriculum

At Key Stage 5 we are part of the highly successful Harris Sixth Form Federation and are pleased to be offering a number of subjects that students from other Harris Academies come here to study with us. For an extensive list of what is on offer in the Sixth Form, please consult the Harris Federation Sixth Form website.
