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.

Academy Life

An immediate sense of belonging and tradition

From the moment the new Year 7 girls arrive at the beginning of September, we help them to feel welcome, settled and cared for.

On their first day, every girl is assigned to one of our four Faculties. Girls identify with their Faculty, which provides a real sense of belonging to a smaller unit within the Academy. Every girl has a Faculty Director and a Faculty Tutor, who take personal responsibility for coaching them, setting goals with them and making sure they settle in well and that they achieve.
Girls wear a shield showing their Faculty colour and are encouraged to win points for their Faculty through academic progress and achievement, good attendance and positive contributions in sport, the arts and Academy life more generally.

A calm and orderly atmosphere

We have a firm emphasis on good behaviour so that the environment at the Academy, inside and outside the classroom, is calm, purposeful and orderly.

Achievement is always celebrated, with regular encouragement, praise and awards for girls when they work their hardest and behave well. We have a clear Code of Conduct that girls respect, and a firm but fair system of sanctions. In combination, these measures ensure all girls can reach high standards as well as enjoy their education.

We believe in providing a personalised, challenging curriculum. Whether a student is struggling, needs to be stretched or is somewhere in the middle, we will always work to meet her needs. Parents and carers will be kept closely informed about their daughter’s progress, with reports being sent home every term.
