Harris Academies
All Academies in our Federation aim to transform the lives of the students they serve by bringing about rapid improvement in examination results, personal development and aspiration.

Curriculum Overview

The curriculum at Harris Boys’ Academy East Dulwich is designed to ensure that each student is educated and supported to succeed in the world today in line with the latest educational research.

The Academy offers a wide range of very high quality academic and vocational courses. The curriculum for each Key Stage is outlined below whilst details of the subjects and examination courses currently on offer can be viewed via the Subjects page

Personal, Social, Health Education (PSHE) is delivered through a combination of the Tutorial Programme, the Assembly Programme and also through the Academy's 'Renaissance Days' which run during the course of each year.

Key Stage 3 - Years 7-8

The Key Stage 3 curriculum is followed by Years 7 and 8 and is designed to provide depth and breadth of study whilst ensuring that appropriate time can be devoted to Mathematics, English and Science.

Our intention is to give students a ‘taste’ of as many subjects as possible, whilst preparing them for, and informing them about, their GCSE options. Literacy and numeracy skills are developed in every subject and across the curriculum.

All students have a broad weekly curriculum offer of English, Maths, Science, Geography, History, Spanish, Religious Studies, ICT skills, Physical Education, Design and Technology, Food Technology, Art, Drama, Dance and Music. Find out more about Key Stage 3.

Key Stage 4 - Years 9-11

All students follow a core curriculum of English Language, English Literature, Maths, Double Science, either Geography or History and BTEC First Sport. 90% of our boys will also have a Modern Foreign Language as part of their core curriculum.

Our students select their additional subjects to make up their curriculum. This selection is made up of vocational courses and other academic subjects. The list of optional subjects is extensive and will give the boys a real opportunity to experience a subject that they may then want to go off and study at university. Find out more about Key Stage 4.

Key Stage 5 - Years 12-13

At Key Stage 5 we are part of the highly successful Harris Federation Sixth Form with over 120 students studying at Harris Boys’ Academy East Dulwich.
