About Harris Girls' Academy Bromley
Harris Academy Bromley is an 11-18 school for Girls in North Beckenham which opened in September 2011. We are a thriving, diverse and academically successful school, with GCSE results are amongst the best in the country and progress being amongst the top 3 per cent of schools nationally.
Alongside a broad, balanced and rigorous curriculum, our specialism of Science and Enterprise provides not only a wealth of academic qualifications, but a framework for learning which raises aspirations and embeds an innovative approach to securing success. We passionately believe in educating young women for the future and are working hard to create opportunities for girls to be successful in STEM subjects.
We are also benefiting from major improvement in facilities, making our academy a modern and inspiring place in which to teach and learn.
Our GCSE results are amongst the best in the country with progress being amongst the top 3% of schools nationally. Our OFSTED Inspection in November 2013 judged our Academy as ‘Good’ which was an incredible achievement and testament of the dedication of our staff. Though we are pleased with these results, we are determined to raise this to ‘Outstanding’.
At Harris Academy Bromley, learning comes first, aspirations are high, achievement is celebrated and the Academy Ethos is driven by the spirit of Science and Enterprise.
The key disciplines of science: experimentation, systematic planning, rational judgement and innovative discovery. We embed an innovative and scientific approach to instilling positive attitudes to learning through:
- Commitment: putting learning first
- Optimism: creating possibilities – achieving potential
- Resourcefulness: activating awareness – accelerating progress
- Enterprise: bold ventures – bright futures
Science and Enterprise
What I like most is that the teachers listen to you and help you if you’re ever in a difficult situation or do not understand the work. They make the lessons fun, which helps me learn.- Student, Year 9
