Welcoming Year 9 to the Harris Experience

Harris Experience event

The Harris Experience is a cultural and academic enhancement programme for our Most Able secondary school students across the Harris Federation from Year 9 to Year 11.

The programme aims to broaden their cultural and academic experiences to give them outstanding preparation for some of the country’s top universities, including Oxford and Cambridge.

The Harris Experience Launch Event took place recently at Harris Academy Falconwood. This was a celebration of the inspirational examples of historic and modern intellects from around the world. The pupils were given insight into the opportunities available for them to fulfil their ever growing potential.

Speeches were given by the leaders of the Harris Experience along with current students on the programme, giving them a glimpse of what they have got to look forward to. The event was well attended by parents and More Able students of other academies within the federation. 

Our pupils were excited by the up and coming events and looking forward the future opportunities:

  • “I did not realise that doing extra-curricular learning can go towards getting into the top university places.”
  • “I am looking forward to the Christie’s auction, to have a go at auctioning the artwork we are producing for the school.”

The pupils were all invited on stage to accept a certificate of their achievement on getting on to the programme, and as a gesture of agreement to participate within all activities. Next session is a philosophy masterclass.

We hope these new learning experiences will become apparent in the Year 9 work within classrooms across the academy. Thank you to all staff, parents and pupils who made the event such a success.

Mr Metcalfe, Teacher of Physical Education, Extra-Curricular Coordinator, Most Able Coordinator
