'Good' Ofsted Report for Harris Academy Morden

Harris Academy Morden has been rated as a ‘Good’ school by Ofsted in its first inspection.

The academy joined the Harris Federation just two years ago, replacing Bishopsford Arts College which was rated ‘Inadequate’ by Ofsted.

Inspectors visited the academy for two days in early December and found it to be ‘Good’ overall. The academy’s leadership and the behaviour and safety of pupils – two of the four categories looked at by Ofsted – went one better and were deemed to be ‘Outstanding’.

In their report, inspectors said:

  • “Students achieve well in most subjects. The progress students make in English and mathematics has risen significantly.”
  • “Students are raising their aspirations for their future academic achievements and personal development. For example, many more students now see further education as a realistic prospect.”
  • “The range of subjects studied is outstanding. It promotes and sustains students’ academic achievement very well.”
  • “The academy encourages excellence beyond the classroom. It provides a very wide range of extra-curricular activities, enrichment opportunities, trips and visits.”
  • “Students’ behaviour in lessons and around the academy is outstanding. They work hard and concentrate very well in lessons.”
  • “Leadership at all levels, including that of the governors, senior and middle leaders, is outstanding.”

The Ofsted report also noted that “the academy is very effectively supported by the Harris Federation in making and sustaining this improvement from the predecessor school” and that “students who reflected on the changes that have taken place since the academy started… commented that students now want to be in lessons and to work.”

The leadership of Principal Lee Mallin was praised as “fundamental in bringing about rapid improvement”. Mr Mallin said:

“We are very pleased with this feedback on our very first Ofsted inspection as an academy. Our students and staff have worked extremely hard in the last two years and it’s great for us to be rewarded with two ‘Outstanding’ judgements in what is a very strong report. Our priority now is to consolidate this success and ensure we become ‘Outstanding’ in all four categories as soon as possible.”

Sir Dan Moynihan, Chief Executive of the Harris Federation, said:

“Congratulations to everyone at Harris Academy Morden. Mr Mallin and his staff have delivered relentless improvement to make this a place where students now genuinely want to learn, and this is evident across the report.”
