About Harris Academy Greenwich
Harris Academy Greenwich is a happy, well resourced, highly successful, inner-city London 11-18 school with a thriving 6th Form, and a brand new state-of-the-art building. It is a school where we are as passionate about developing our staff as we are about developing our students. Our school is a vibrant and exciting place in which to work, with an outstanding training programme to take your teaching to truly world class. The staff are highly valued and highly motivated, totally bought into our vision to develop successful students who demonstrate courage, behave with integrity and live happy lives.
Our staff are dedicated to transforming the lives of our students, providing them with not only the best possible academic outcomes, but with the experiences and guidance that will help them become resilient, resourceful, reflective and emotionally intelligent young adults.
The Academy prides itself on its modern, student-centred approach to education, but with traditional values of respect and discipline at its core. With academic outcomes consistently in the top 10% of schools in the country, it is a school carving out a new story for its students and our local community.
We are developing a fantastic reputation not only for some of the best results in the country, despite serving a very deprived catchment, but for the way our staff feel at work. We are always on the search for authentic teachers who enjoy what they do, who have great subject knowledge, charisma and have a strong sense of moral purpose.
Pace: We approach each day with determination and are relentless in our pursuit of excellence for our students and staff. We work hard and work smart, making swift but thoughtful decisions which are put in place for our students with total conviction for maximum impact.
Purpose: We believe that we have the power to transform our students’ lives, regardless of their ability, background, social status and life opportunities. We will help our students to dream bigger, to learn harder and to be more successful than they thought possible. In doing so we believe that we will transform our community for the better.
Pride: Our staff and students show immense pride in their school. We teach our students to walk tall and to demonstrate pride in themselves and in others. Our community deserves an outstanding school and we will give it to them.
