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.

The Challenge

The Challenge is an intensive, part-residential programme that takes place over 15 days in the summer holidays, followed by 4 social action weekend days in the autumn.

The programme is in 3 parts:

Personal Challenge – participants face their fears, develop confidence and bond with team mates on an action packed residential.

Team Challenge – team mates work together to learn a new skill in sport, media, photography, music, drama or enterprise in a university setting.

Real Challenge – using their newly acquired skills, teams design a social action project in

the local area, and pitch their project to win funding to make it happen.

The Challenge is open to all Year 11 students and is part of our drive to increase the range and quality of learning opportunities for our students. The Challenge also supports the curriculum in promoting successful progression to the students’ next stage of education, training or employment.
