Harris Academy Greenwich
Welcome to Harris Academy Greenwich – a brand new Academy with pace, purpose and pride.
Opening in September 2012, the Academy will combine the traditional values of discipline, respect and good behaviour with contemporary practice in teaching and technology. It will be a welcoming and friendly place where learning comes first, high standards of excellence are set and achievement is celebrated.
As a member of the Harris Federation, the Academy will benefit from the charity’s 20 years’ experience in running successful schools and will work with all of the Federation’s Academies. It will work particularly closely with Harris Academy Falconwood in Bexley which is only a ten minute drive away and has been judged by Ofsted as “Outstanding”.
The new Academy’s Senior Leadership Team, which is already in place at the predecessor school, was brought into the school from Harris Academy Chafford Hundred.
They have an excellent track record, having transformed Harris Academy Chafford Hundred into the best performing school in Essex. Out of 31 Ofsted categories, the Academy was judged to be “Outstanding” in 30 of them and last summer 92% of students achieved five good GCSEs including English and maths. It is in the top 1% of all schools in the country for the academic progress its students make whilst studying there.
The same Senior Leadership Team is already making rapid improvements in Greenwich, with this summer’s GCSE results likely to be comfortably higher than the national average even before the Academy opens.
Applying for a place for this September
The Academy will be free to attend and will be open to local children aged 11-18.
We are still accepting applications for this September so if you live in or near Greenwich, you may wish to apply for a place there for its first Year 7 academy intake. To give you an opportunity to find out more, we are running tours of the Academy building on Wednesday 18th April between 9.30am and 12.30pm. These will be followed by an open evening at 6pm at the Academy’s site (Middle Park Avenue, SE9 5EQ).
More information about Harris Academy Greenwich will be placed on this website as it becomes available, so watch this space. If, in the meantime, you have any questions or would like to make an appointment to visit the Academy, please feel free to call the Harris Federation on 020 8253 7777.
