The Harris Academy Morden staff and students are split into one of four faculties; students wear a tie with the colour stripes of their faculty to indicate this: Blue, Red, Yellow and Green. The students and staff from each faculty attend a weekly Faculty Assembly each led by their Faculty Coordinator:
Each Faculty has 4 x Year 7 & 8 Vertical Tutor Groups, 3 x Year 9 & 10 Vertical Tutor Groups and 2 Year 11 Horizontal Tutor Groups. Tutors meet with their Tutees every morning form 8.30-8.50am. In this time, Tutor Groups follow a Pastoral Programme including an Assembly Competition, Literacy, Numeracy and PSHE activities.
There is a healthy competition between the Faculties in the weekly leagues published for: Attendance; Punctuality; Positives and Negatives. Moreover, each half-term there is an Inter-Faculty Challenge where points are awarded for the Faculty’s position. The Inter-Faculty Cup is decided at the end of the academic year following the Academy’s Sports Day in the Summer Term.
If you need to contact your child’s Tutor about any day to day issues or concerns, their names are confirmed below. For more serious issues please contact their Faculty Coordinator.
