Values and vision
Harris Church of England Academy is more than just a place where students come to learn. It is also a place where a community develops and thrives. It is a place where we come together to support each other to achieve, whether it is in the classroom learning, on the sports field competing or on the stage performing, we know that success comes from us all working together.
Student progress will always remain a key priority because outcomes so often dictate future pathways and opportunities for young people.
Our educational vision is to create a community of lifelong learners who are anchored by a clear set of Christian values, passionate about realising their potential and have the capacity to contribute to their community, as well balanced and confident citizens. I have an absolute belief in the ability of all to achieve within a Christian ethos and to provide opportunities for young people to develop spiritually, morally, socially and culturally.
The ethos of the school is at the heart of everything we do, as education is not just about the academic results but about looking at the whole person. It is about teaching life skills to enable young people to succeed in whatever they choose to do. All that we do is underpinned by Christian values and mutual respect.
For our students, the vision will enable them to not only achieve their true academic potential, but also increase self-esteem, build resilience and self-belief in their God given talents.
"The school has a caring ethos and ensures that pupils are well looked after and kept safe."
"Leaders are preparing pupils well for a life in Britain."
"Pupils are proud of their school, which is calm and orderly at all times."
