Q: How do you help girls settle in?

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.


Q: What opportunities are there for students wishing to progress within STEM?

We passionately believe in educating young women for the future and with specialisms in Science and Enterprise we are working hard to create opportunities for girls to be successful in STEM subjects.

The Engineers of Tomorrow Lego Robotics Club and Nasa Trip are to name but two of the academy's extracurricular enrichment within STEM subjects.


Q: What other extra-curricular activities are on offer?

The academy provides both before and after school enrichment activities. Please see our enrichment offers for further details using the link below.

Safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility, every day. Your child and their health and safety, is our number one priority.

As part of our safeguarding practices, all our staff, visitors, parents/carers and students work together to know the rules about keeping children safe. Through providing a caring, safe and stimulating environment which promotes the social, physical and moral development of all our students, we aim to foster an atmosphere of trust, respect and security.

Q: How will I know how my child is progressing?

Students will complete end of half termly assessments in English, Math’s and Science. In all subjects they will be assessed each term. These assessments will be marked and given a percentage score which will be converted into a Most Likely Grade at GCSE.

Each term parents/ carers will receive a data report. Each data report will show a target grade and a Most Likely Grade (MLG) for each subject.

At the end of each term parents/ carers will also receive a report stating their child’s effort, attitude to learning, homework and contribution in lessons. In addition to this a full written report will be received once a year.

Q: How is your coeducational Sixth Form working?

Harris Girls' Academy Bromley has a coeducational Sixth Form that is hugley successful, diverse and growing. 

Students are seen as young leaders, able to adopt a mature, enquiring and committed approach to their studies and aiming for the highest levels of achievement. Although we are an all girls' school from Year 7-11, the academy benefits greatly by being a co-educational Sixth Form.


Q: How is Sixth Form different to KS3 and KS4?

Most Sixth Formers find the Sixth Form in the Harris Federation and at our campus, a bridge between the structure and discipline of school life and the independence of university life. Our Sixth Formers have a number of free study periods added into their timetables, which are used to travel between the Sixth Form Campuses, depending on lessons, or where they can use the facilities on site to manage their time, workload and self-study effectively. Lessons within Sixth Form also have more emphasis on discussions and independent research.

Sixth Form Provision


Q: Do many students in your Sixth Form move onto University or apprenticeships?

As part of the Harris Federation, our academy benefits from a wide range of university and business partnerships, including programmes with King’s College and Imperial College, London and PricewaterhouseCoopers. These partnerships help to develop both the skill and expectation in our students to apply successfully to top universities, including Oxford and Cambridge.

For those wishing to move forward with apprenticeships, our careers advisor is on site once a week to have one-to-one meetings and work in collaboration with external providers to ensure students have all the information nesseary when moving onwards in the careers.
