Harris Academies
All Academies in our Federation aim to transform the lives of the students they serve by bringing about rapid improvement in examination results, personal development and aspiration.

Faculty Challenges

Each half-term students compete in 3 Faculty Challenges. Each Faculty selects a Key Stage 3 and a Key Stage 4 team to represent the Faculty and try to win coveted Harris Points.

This academic year there have been challenges covering a large range of topics and events:

  • The Egg Drop Challenge
  • The Spelling Bee
  • The Mental Maths Challenge
  • The Art Sketch Off
  • The Spanish Culture and Food Challenge
  • The Ready Steady Cook Challenge
  • The Code Breaking Challenge
  • The App Design Challenge.

In addition there is also a Sport Challenge each half-term: Football, Basketball, Trampolining and Dodgeball.

Many students have been involved in one or more of the challenges this academic year and have contributed to their faculty’s position on Faculty Challenge Leader Board.
