Enrichment Activities

Harris Academy Morden runs a rewarding and exciting Enrichment Programme, which is designed to captivate the interests of all the students with a rich array of clubs. At Harris Academy, our enrichment clubs are an integral part of our Personal Development Programme, which encompasses five core strands: cultural capital, citizenship, resilience, tolerance, and wellbeing. Through participation in a variety of clubs throughout the year, students have the opportunity to develop each of these essential aspects of personal growth. We encourage students to explore diverse interests, engage in teamwork, and cultivate leadership skills, all while fostering a sense of community and belonging. To recognize and celebrate their dedication, participation in extra-curricular activities is rewarded with Harris points and certificates at our termly Celebration Assemblies.

The extracurricular sessions are instrumental in supporting our KS3 students’ development of a valuable set of skills that will serve them well throughout their secondary school journey and beyond.

For KS4 students, our diverse clubs are strategically crafted to guide them towards their GCSE success. From subject-specific support to tailored tutoring, we aim to provide the tools and resources needed to achieve the best possible results in their GCSE examinations.

The Twilight Programme is an exclusive opportunity for Year 11 students. Delivered by our dedicated subject teachers, these after-school sessions offer targeted support, ensuring students are well-prepared for the challenges that lie ahead.


Academic Excellence: Our after-school clubs offer focused academic support, helping students excel in their studies and achieve academic excellence.

Holistic Development: Beyond academics, engagement in enrichment activities nurtures holistic development, fostering skills such as teamwork, leadership, and critical thinking.

Personalized Support: The setting of after-school sessions allows for personalized attention, addressing individual needs and facilitating optimal understanding of subjects.

Confidence Building: Active participation in clubs and enrichment programs contributes to the development of self-confidence, empowering students to tackle challenges with assurance.

Preparation for Future Challenges: The skills acquired through after-school enrichment prepare students for future challenges, both in higher education and the professional realm.

At Harris Morden, we believe that enrichment extends beyond the school day, shaping students into well-rounded individuals prepared for success.

Local History Club – Wednesday 3:00-3:50pm in the Library

Welcome to the latest updates from our Local History Club! Our club continues to attract a dedicated group of students passionate about history and historical inquiry. These students demonstrate outstanding independence as they conduct research and assemble informative presentations on topics of interest.

In their recent inquiry, the club delved into the history of World War II and explored the significance of air raid shelters in London and Sutton. Their findings shed light on an important aspect of our local history and wartime experience.

Additionally, our students have been busy recording historical podcasts, with Episode 3 soon to be available. Stay tuned for more fascinating insights into our past!
