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. The four Faculty Directors will work across the Academy, through all age groups, taking responsibility for cross-Academy strategies.

Tutors will track and monitor progression of their students throughout their life in the Academy. The system for celebrating achievement and enterprising attitudes to learning will reflect this structure, as will the sanctions procedures, to ensure that learning comes first.

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.

Year 7 tutors also link in with their Faculty Directors, who, along with the Admissions Officer, helps to ensure our new Year 7 students have a smooth transition into the Academy.


At Harris Girls' Academy Bromley, our Sixth Form is overseen by a Faculty Director and Sixth Form team, that specialises in coaching and monitoring our sixth formers. The Faculty Director has responsibility for the care and wellbeing of their tutor groups.

Our Sixth Form is federated with Harris Post 16 and students on occasion may travel between some of our various campuses. Where any student should need to travel across site for lessons, a timetable is available in the Sixth Form study area.
