What People Say About Us

We get lots of positive comments about our students from members of the public and visitors who write to the Academy of their own accord simply to praise them. I’m delighted to share some of their comments with you. 

Chris Everitt, Executive Principal


To all the staff at HBAED... You are brilliant.  Thank you for all your help in turning our son into a sensible, responsible and kind young man. Parent


I am a member of the public who has just left the newsagent at the Dunstans Road junction and I'm just emailing to say how impressed I was with the manners of one of your pupils (I'd guess year 9 or 10) who opened the shop door and held it open for me to leave. It was polite and considerate and I felt compelled to email. Local resident


Could you please pass on our great thanks to all those who have been involved in our son’s education at Harris over the years. I know the hard work that all staff, including support staff, put in on a daily basis, while the quality of many of the lessons and resources have contributed greatly to his continued thirst for knowledge and development. I am certain that he will achieve what he needs to for the next step in his education and that is in no small part because of the professionalism and hard work of all the staff at Harris, East Dulwich. Parent


The head of a  Crystal Palace Primary School who visited us recently stated  that this is the "calmest and most pleasant secondary school" she had ever seen.


One of our neighbours telephoned us to say what a credit the boys are to us. She watches them leave every day and they are so "lovely to behold". Even the bigger boys who are all pent up from exams are "polite well behaved", she said. 


I am emailing you today to highlight how great your boys were this evening when visiting the school I work at with Football Beyond Borders. They were visiting Chestnut Grove Academy for a match and demonstrated true class and maturity when walking around our school. They were respectful, polite and a true credit to your school and the Football Beyond Borders scheme. Please pass on my comments to the boys and their coach, who clearly are all doing fantastic work. Chestnut Grove Academy


All of the students we worked with were exceptionally well behaved, polite, engaged, and a pleasure to work with. The atmosphere in every classroom, and in the school in general, has been wonderful. Craig Morgan, King's College


Thanks to the 4 @HarrisEDB boys who stopped to (quite literally) pick me up when I fell over on my run this afternoon. Just grazes but ouch. Do pass on thanks. They were excellent ambassadors for the school. (Sent via Tweets)


We wanted to thank you for the wonderful education that you provided our son. He arrived to your school in Year 8 having been educated until then in [another school].  Before coming to HBAED he was bored and disinterested in school. During his time in HBAED he discovered a real “thirst for learning” and went on to gain 5 A*s and 3 As at GCSE. He is now studying A level Maths, Physics, Biology and Chemistry [and] continues to excel. We attribute his achievement to the fact that he was able to attend your school which gave him the confidence, knowledge and enthusiasm for learning within a supportive and caring environment. Thank you.


My eldest son has now finished his GSCEs and is hoping to get the grades he needs to attend Harris Sixth Form. Your school is outstanding and I often thank my lucky stars that he and his younger brother were fortunate enough to get a place at Harris Boys' East Dulwich. I have nothing but admiration for all of your staff for their dedication and support to pupils. 

From one of our parents


I just wanted to write to you having watched wonderful collaboration between your boys and some of our boy dancers. I saw the collaboration on Friday. It was part of our community project which has seen us work and perform with about 5,000 local children, residents and members of community groups. Your boys were ace. Not only as performers but as supportive young men and ambassadors for your school. Their work was mature, intelligent and well crafted. I thought the messages about the need for individuality over conformity were very telling and a great reminder of how smart young people are. I look forward to more collaborations with you.


 Your boys are so well behaved. Really well mannered. 

Comment made by a member of the public to Mr Carey as they were passing the school in the morning.


I thought the young people were all really well behaved and engaged with us really well and positively. The day was organised really well and everything went smoothly. Thanks again.

Battersea Dogs Home, who visited our school recently as part of a session for years 7 and 8 about working together for a safer community.


I would like to congratulate a boy from Harris Boys Academy. He helps me occasionally and also says hi to me. He is quiet on the bus and also says thank you and please. What a Gentleman. He also stands up for the elderly on the bus. He even helped me carry my shopping to the bus stop. I will like you to congratulate and acknowledge him on what he does to. He is very special to me and other members of the public.


I am writing to congratulate a student from this school. He saw an elderly lady struggling so he helped her. This lady was my mum. He kindly asked her if she needed help. He helped her cross the road and walk her to the bus stop."He is a hero and a wonderful gentleman", my mum said. He shows how this school teaches boys to help others and to respect each other. I would like you to praise him and tell him how amazing he is to me and my family.


I just wanted to send a quick email to comment on some very nice behaviour from a couple of your pupils today.  I was on the 63 bus today doing the nursery run with my two children at around school coming out time and i was sat with lots of your pupils, on noticing my three year old looking intently at a small packet of sweets he had one boy very kindly gave her one and then before we got off the bus gave her the rest of the packet. And, when we went to get off the bus another boy noticed I was having trouble with the buggy and helped me. Not huge things I know but also sometimes not things that (unfortunately) teenage boys are credited with. 


A teacher from a local primary school called to explain that she takes the P13 bus to work each morning. At least 10 of our students get on the same bus every morning and she said that they are polite, well-mannered boys who board and disembark the bus in an orderly manner without fail. She went on to state that this morning another member of the public was extremely rude to them for no reason. The boys did not retaliate or argue back but appeared to be a little shell-shocked. She wanted to express that it was not their fault at all and hopes that they have a good day, she also wanted to let us know that the boys are a credit to the Academy.


A lady called the Academy today to inform us that on Friday, as she was trying to get her young children out of the car on Barry Road (with great difficulty), one of our younger students walked over and said: "Sorry to disturb you, but is there anything I can do to help you."  She  told me that he was so very polite that this was a fantastic advertisement for our Academy and its students.


Today I was unloading some heavy items from my car when three of your pupils stopped and offered to help me. The boys in question were Immanuel, Kojo and Hope.  Although I declined their kind offer I am writing to you to commend their kindness and community spiritedness.


I have visited your school in the past and am very impressed with the inspirational building and academic achievements of your school.  I live very close to the school and think your boys are a credit to both the school and community.


We came to the school last night for our son’s first parents' evening since starting in Year 7 in September. I just wanted to write to say how impressed we were by all the teachers I met. I wasn't surprised by this, since overall we've been incredibly impressed by the school since he started, and he's been flourishing, but we were struck by how thoughtful, enthusiastic and committed they all were. They had specific comments to make on his work and gave very clear and practical advice about how he could improve as well - which showed real insight after a relatively short time - and they were also clearly warm and caring. No wonder our son looks forward to school and enjoys being there so much.


It reflects very well on the leadership team of the school to have brought together such a great group of teachers.


I just wanted to give you some positive feedback.  I live near the Harris Academy and on a number of occasions boys in their school uniform have seen me walking into a shop pushing my baby in a pram. They have always come over and held open the door for me.  It is really nice to see such kindness  and I have really appreciated it!  Thank you.
