Welcome by the Head of Academy
It is with great pleasure that we welcome you to our website, which we hope captures the ethos of our wonderful Academy. Harris Academy Morden is a wonderful place to learn and teach. We have a very hard working team of teachers and support staff; they provide a caring and welcoming atmosphere for our students.
The Academy site is a huge site with close to 6 acres of school buildings, sports halls, gymnasium, all weather pitches, tennis courts and large playing fields / athletic track thus providing excellent facilities.
The Academy has a limit of 900 places across Year 7-11. We are unlike other schools; we do not want to expand at this moment in time, in fact we wish to remain small for as long as possible! This will ensure a small school where your child is known to staff and a caring environment can be provided.
The Academy is traditional in our approach to discipline and uniform, yet forward-thinking and at the cutting edge of curriculum development.
The Academy aims to develop the whole child. We have a real focus on progress and attainment, yet ensure students develop their cultural awareness. We have a breadth of extra-curricular activities including Korean, Sports, Food and Art Clubs alongside support and extension in traditional subjects.
Students experience visits to a range of cultural and historical locations during our Aspire, Experience and Explore programmes and are expected to attend and compete in Faculty Challenge competitions.
We are proud of our Academy; we are proud of our students and proud of the education that they receive. Our intention is to provide insight into Academy life via our website, but to get a real understanding you must visit and see the Academy in action.
Our open door policy and offer to let parents observe a ‘real’ working day is one of the reasons this Academy is now so popular with local families as they have had the opportunity to witness first hand our amazing Academy. We hope to be able to offer this to you once more in the very near future.
We look forward to meeting you.
