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.

Jack Petchey Award

Harris Academy Morden joined the Jack Petchey Achievement Award scheme in January 2014 and now nominates winners each half-term. The award goes to students who distinguish themselves by their hard work, effort and contribution to the academy and winners can choose how to spend £250 within the Academy to benefit their fellow students. The winners are chosen for a range of reasons such as their commitment to the academy, helpfulness to others, contribution made to our community and being a good role model.

Winners receive the following:

  • A certificate signed by Jack Petchey
  • A lapel badge to be worn on their blazer
  • An invitation to one of the annual celebration events
  • The opportunity to decide how a £250 grant will be spent in the academy to benefit them and their fellow students.

Below is a list of the awards issued during 2016-2017:





Leah Thripp

As well as excelling academically, Leah attends numerous extracurricular clubs and is always extremely polite or courteous, being willing to help out during tutor time. She has performed as part of the Harris choir to represent our school. Leah is a very responsible student who has been a Tour Guide for visitors on many occasions and is also a Form Council representative who is part of the Student Council.

Rania Kureshy

Rania has been extremely positive this year building on her successes last year - she always wears a smile and is extremely helpful to both students and teachers alike.  She often volunteers to help out with school events such as parent’s evenings and open evenings.  She acts as a positive role model in both tutor time and also in lessons showing students what it means to be a positive learner.  She has a good sense of humour and a voracious appetite for learning which will no doubt ensure she has a bright academic future ahead of her.

Tessa Eveleigh






Tessa is extremely conscientious and organised. She is an excellent role model to her peers. Tessa is well respected and has been a positive influence on all that she comes into contact with. She is definitely an asset to this academy with her positive attitude and lovely demeanour.

Adam Yunusa

I would like to nominate Adam for the Jack Petchey Award as he has always presented himself as a role model. He is always punctual and polite and gives 100% focus to his studies. Adam is often commended by his teachers for his outstanding contributions to lessons. In addition, he has also helped his peers with their learning and with their leadership in sport.


Nikol Yeremieva


Nikol is a very helpful, courteous and thoughtful student who always gives her best effort in lessons. She is not only a gifted linguist but a thoughtful student who is considerate of other children and helps them to achieve their best. Nikol has been nominated for a variety of awards from her teachers and she also won the competition to design our school Christmas Card. 



Amanda Dos Santos


Amanda always tries her best, she does not give up when she does not understands the content, she is a determined student who helps those around her to understand as well. She is kind and conscientious and a pleasure to have in lessons!


Zak          Clark


Zak has developed  a love for Theatre lighting. He has been active in the Department since September although was unable to take it for GCSE. He ran the Sound for the Christmas show but also set all the Lighting states. He has now taken charge of the production of DNA and is setting over 40 lighting states. His passion is also being passed over to others and is creating a large impact to the department. Students are being shown a new pathway on the GCSE that without Zak's initial passion and commitment would not have been possible.



Alannah Conneely

Alannah's enthusiasm for English has blossomed this year and she tirelessly tries to improve her performance in every lesson. She has even gone so far as to create revision mood board strategies for the class and organised a class presentation to Mr Mallin develop revision means for the class and cohort. In addition, to this she has shown her thoughtful and generous persona in organising fundraising for the Grenfell Tower tragedy.
