Harris Boys' benefits from a state-of-the-art purpose built building with the very latest facilities and equipment. The Academy offers a co-educational Post 16 with the nearby Harris Girls' Academy, together comprising capacity for 400 Sixth Formers. Harris Boys' was judged to be an outstanding school by Ofsted in December 2011.
Academy Ethos
We encourage our students to be critical thinkers and promote these skills throughout the curriculum. A student at Harris Boys' Academy will learn how to engage critically with foreign affairs, religion and society, issues of citizenship and the media, so they acquire the skills, and recognise the value of, thinking for yourself and thinking in a well-reasoned manner.
Why work at Harris Boys' Academy East Dulwich? 


  • The number seven boys' comprehensive school for student progress, which has been in the top 6% for student progress every year for the past five years 

  • Judged 'Outstanding' by Ofsted, we combine the traditional values of discipline, respect and good behaviour with contemporary best practice in teaching, learning and technology 

  • A superb group of students, teachers and support staff, led by an exceptionally experienced and supportive leadership team 

  • Excellent opportunities for personal and professional development 

  • Generous Harris rewards and benefits 

Grow with us. 
At Harris Boys’ Academy East Dulwich we value continued professional learning (CPL) for all our staff. Alongside the Harris Federation's courses and qualifications, we therefore also offer an additional range of CPL sessions and activities too.  
We also produce regular innovation newsletters to help all teachers around the academy hear about innovative ideas in other departments, which they might not otherwise know about. Each issue focuses on a different topic, such as pupil progress and outcomes, staff well-being and behaviour management. 
Words from Peter Groves, Principal at Harris Boys’ Academy East Dulwich. 
“You have to have resilience, you’ve got to have backbone, you’re going to have days that don’t go well, you’re going to have days which go amazingly. And it’s the ability to reflect, learn and come back and try new methods and improve. People who put that in flourish. 63% of our staff train with us now so we’ve got a body of staff here who have trained with us and work with us and really get what we’re trying to do. What’s great about that is anyone who does come in has a model to follow, who’s been in their shoes so it’s a great place to learn your craft.” Peter Groves, Principal at Harris Boys’ Academy East Dulwich. 
What makes us special goes far beyond the “outstanding” rating by Ofsted we were delighted to achieve in 2011. At the heart of our success is an absolute belief in the ability of every student to shine – no matter what their background, ability or character. We will accept no excuses for being anything but the best we can be.
