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.


At Harris Academy Morden staff have always worked collaboratively to provide the best possible learning environment for our students. This was formalised in 2013-2015 when we created our Teaching and Learning Teams. At the start of the year staff were grouped in mixed subject teams to share best practice in a range of areas. Each team was led by a highly skilled teacher and at the end of the year these ideas were shared in a ‘teachmeet’ style presentation in front of the whole staff.



Following very positive feedback from those involved, this initiative has now been extended further to include a more formalised research aspect. This year, staff were offered the opportunity to propose an area of research in which they were particularly interested. As part of the launch these ideas were pitched to colleagues, who then opted for a particular Teaching and Learning Research Team (T&LRT).  Some examples of particular research areas this year are:

  • Physicality in Learning
  • Music in the Classroom
  • Chess and learning
  • Engagement of Students

Our T&LR Teams will meet 6 times throughout the year, to plan, implement, and evaluate their research projects.  The results will then be presented to all staff in an end of year event, along with the outcomes being captured in a brief written report.  Since all proposals for research are required to be rooted in impact on student learning, we believe the work of our T&LR teams will be a key tool in creating outstanding learning at our Academy.
