About Harris Academy Battersea

Harris Academy Battersea is modern and innovative, but with old-fashioned values. Its aim is to shape the lives of students by providing them with the best possible academic outcomes from outstanding courses and – crucially – the experiences and guidance that will help them become resilient, resourceful, reflective and respectful, emotionally intelligent global citizens.

About Harris Academy Battersea:

Harris Academy Battersea will be in its fifth academic year in 2018-19 and has established itself as one of the highest performing schools in London, judged to be Outstanding by Ofsted in 2018. In 2017, it was awarded the Evening Standard School of the Year as well as being named one of the Sunday Times Top 20 Schools in the country. In 2016-17, it was ranked 4th highest school in England for pupil progress and the top non-selective school nationally and achieved a provisional figure of +1.40 for Progress 8 in 2018-19: nearly three times higher than the +0.5 threshold set by OfSTED for 'Outstanding'.

Why work at Harris Academy Battersea?

People who choose to work with children are choosing a demanding career and it is our aim to make sure that staff are as well supported as they can be. We have a zero tolerance approach to anything that interrupts the learning in a classroom and our central team that deals with both behaviour and homework detentions does so to make sure that our staff are as free as possible to do the three things that matter most: mark, plan and teach.

Any position in education is inevitably laden with values and ideals and we are a school built on a shared ownership of these. We wish to give our students the very best start that we can in life and, through hard work and determination, we hope that our values and ideals take shape as something recognisable in the futures that we help build.
