Welcome to Our Virtual Open Day 2020

Welcome to Harris Boys' Academy East Dulwich, a thriving school which has been in the top 5% of schools in England and Wales for pupil progress for the past five years. 

We created this virtual open day for 2020 in place of our usual open days, which we were unable to have this year because of Covid-19.

What makes us special goes far beyond our “outstanding” rating by Ofsted. 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.

Thank you for considering our academy for your son and please do contact us if you have any queries.

Peter Groves, Principal

What Year 7 boys say...
