What the school offers its staff

At Harris Girls Academy Bromley we have built a school community where we hold character and academic excellence in equally high regard.

Progress 8 for the school was in the top 100 in the country last year, and we were the only school from this group with a student body that has above average disadvantage, and below average EAL. Learning, curriculum, and pedagogy is exemplary here. Although we believe that these results lead to a tangible improvement in the opportunities of our young people we are equally proud of the way we see our students conduct themselves in our classrooms and corridors on the day to day. In the commitment they demonstrate in the library and the drama studio, or in the resilience they demonstrate in the sports hall and the textiles room. It is a privilege to teach students at Bromley.

We believe that we have built something special here through a leadership at all levels philosophy of constant improvement, and listening to our students, staff, and wider community.

Leadership at HGABR considers that the academy exists as an important community organisation that has an impact on a significant number of lives, and we believe that stewarding this organisation is a responsibility that requires dedication and excellence from us.


Our people are at the heart of our success. We have developed a strong culture of collaboration and best practice, with professional development and career planning at its centre. We invest in our staff with support, coaching, mentoring, and a wide range of top-quality training programmes delivered at every level to senior leadership. We look for talented individuals who share our vision for creating exceptional places of learning, and are committed to ensuring that every child in London has access to the best possible education. In addition to the opportunities for career progression, training and development, we also offer a competitive rewards and benefits package which includes our Harris Allowance for teachers on MPS/UPS, a Performance and Loyalty Bonus, Pension Scheme, electric car scheme, a Wellbeing Cash Plan and many other benefits.
