Are you ready to change the world? Harris Science Academy East London is a new, small school with big ambitions. Join us on our mission to help our children become leaders in their chosen field with many leading in science and to become one of the top schools in the UK.

This is no ordinary school. Situated in an eclectic array of buildings next to the renowned Three Mills Studios (location of BBC's Masterchef) amongst the iconic East London canal network, this is a unique setting to provide a life changing education for the children of East London.

We believe we will succeed in this mission through a relentless focus on the basic functions of a high performing school:

Unified leadership and alignment behind a powerful mission.
Exemplary student behaviour.
A well-taught, unapologetically academic education for all children.
Regular opportunities for character development.
Every member of our school community is a leader. We believe that leadership does not have to be macho or at the expense of others. Our values of GRACE help us to achieve success in a collegiate and sustainable way:

Growth – the belief that we can always improve and that feedback from others is essential for our development.
Responsibility – we own our decisions and recognise when we need to put things right or make a change.
Ambition – the belief that access to the top grades, the best universities and elite careers are available for our children.
Compassion – we are kind to others and grateful for what we have.
Excellence – we prioritise doing the basics well day after day, so we build habits that lead to success.
The school joined the Harris Federation in September 2022. The Harris Federation is the most successful large multi-academy trust in the UK and the only large trust where disadvantaged students secured a positive progress score in 2022. We are hugely proud of the work we do to support the most vulnerable children in the UK. The Federation has made a significant financial investment in the Academy, with upgrades to Sixth Form provision, buildings and IT. The Federation subject consultants provide industry leading support to middle leaders to deliver the best education possible for all children across the Federation.

If you are aligned, driven and committed to doing what works, this is an excellent opportunity to join an organisation undergoing rapid transformation.
