Delighted to welcome and his team into our academy this week to film for his latest book. Inspiring our students to develop their reading further.


It is with great pleasure that we can announce that our Science Technician, Rudolf Van Koningsveld, has been awarded The Registered Science Technician Award (RSciTech), a registered mark recognising excellence for technicians working in science education!


Year 11 students dazzled the examiner with their recent GCSE Component 2 performances, worth 20% of their overall grade.Performing two gripping extracts from 'Starlight Express', the students showcased months of hard work and dedication, leaving the examiner in awe.


Principal's Breakfast on Friday celebrated ten students nominated for 'doing the right thing all the time' this week by their teachers. Each week the winners receive a free breakfast, gift voucher and certificate

Very happy to be featured in this week along with following both our Ofsted 'Outstanding' ratings. We're incredibly proud of our staff and students and it's lovely to have our success celebrated!


Year 12 and 13 students were treated to a talk about economics (and careers) by Chief Economist Peter Arnold . "Peter's talk has encouraged me to pursue a career in economics," said Imran. "I look forward to learning more about the macroeconomic policies in my course."


We had fun last week celebrating our recent Ofsted 'Outstanding' Award with students. We were very proud of the way our students conducted themselves during the visit. They were a true credit to themselves, our Academy and their families.


Get your tickets for our latest school production, Bugsy Malone, 13th and 14th March 2024. Tickets available on ParentPay from 19th February. Don't miss!


We are thrilled to announce that our student, Sebastian, has emerged as the winner in the Southwark Regional Final of Jack Petchey's Speak Out Challenge. A compelling and persuasive performance indeed!

Year 12 Biology Students Complete Ecology Work in Suffolk

Year 12 Biologists were privileged to visit the Flatford Mill Centre in Suffolk, to engage in a three-day residential trip. Students took part in several sessions in the beautiful fields of Suffolk, completing ecology work for their required practical. Year 12 students Christopher and Maryam report on the experience.

Flatford1Our class visited Flatford Mill Field work centre in Suffolk, where we explored the natural environment, researched flora and fauna, and participated in activities for our A-Level Biology required practical.

On the first day we were introduced to different sampling techniques by our tutors which we used in our final investigation. We also participated in different team-building activities alongside other Harris schools which was good fun and allowed us to meet new people.

On the second day, we were given a practical to complete in the woods nearby in which we practiced the sampling methods we learnt to identify the biodiversity of different species of plants. In the evening, we had a campfire and were given time to explore, socialise and meet new people. On the final day, we carried out our final practical, using the skills we learned.

Overall, the trip was very fun as well as informative, giving us the chance to explore the British countryside and the species within it.

Christopher, Year 12 Biology student

Day 1: We did the introduction session with our assigned tutor and eased us to different biological techniques for sampling such as Stratified, Random, Systematic. This was very informative as we now have the knowledge of different types of sampling. Our tutor went into depth about each sampling, and which one is relevant for specific scenarios. We later had team games with other Harris Schools, which was good as this was an icebreaker for others and allowed us to get to know each other.

Day 2: We were given a practical which required us to go to the field to investigate. My group used an open quadrat and transect (10 to 10).Then we picked random co-ordinates and placed quadrats and equipment such as penetrometer, light meter and canopy cover to measure the edge and the centre, so that we are able to compare the two results. We later had campfire activities.

Day 3: We put all the skills we learnt together and were given an experiment. Our experiment was: “How does the number of nettles change with decreasing light intensity as you move away from a pine”. 

Overall, I enjoyed it because it strengthened my knowledge of ecology.
