About Harris Academy Greenwich
Harris Academy Greenwich is a happy and successful inner-city London 11-18 school with a thriving 6th Form, and a brand new state-of-the-art building. It is a school where we are as passionate about developing our staff as we are about developing our students.
The Harris Federation is a highly successful group of schools who serve many of the most deprived areas of London. We are collaborative, enterprising and share a passion for turning lives around, yet each school is autonomous and free to set its own vision and strategy for how it does that.
Each Harris school feels completely different in terms of culture and ethos. Perhaps this is the school you’ve been looking for.
In this corner of South East London we have a clear mission: to run a great school which offers every child, regardless of circumstance, the chance to thrive both personally and academically.
We make no apology for believing a key part to a happy and fulfilled life is a great set of exam results. They are the currency which students require to progress to next stage of their education. No amount of celebrity disapproval or stories of success against the odds will convince us otherwise. Results matter to our community.
We know that academic progress is critical to our students enjoying lives of choice and opportunity but that they also need to develop the content of their character and have a range of rich experiences which they will never forget. We want to help students have warm hearts and cool heads so that they are ready for the challenges of adolescence and ultimately adulthood. In short, we want our students to live well.
Our students are very proud to be a part of our school community because they know that this is a place where they can Step into their Greatness.
