Teaching & Learning

Harris Academy Morden is an Academy with high expectations. We have an excellent team of teachers and teaching assistants who plan, deliver and assess a broad curriculum. Our exam results are strong and constantly improving.

Our vision for all lessons:

  • We will strive for academic excellence through collaborative partnerships involving staff, students, parents, and a wide range of external experts;
  • We will encourage our students to become independent learners who are responsible for their own learning;  
  • We will establish cross-curricular links to ensure that all students are literate and numerate;
  • We will create opportunities for creativity, innovation, problem-solving and risk-taking;
  • We will develop our students as leaders who take responsibility for their actions;
  • We will mould our students into active citizens who will engage positively with the wider community, striving for social justice locally, nationally and internationally;
  • We will provide opportunities for our students to develop financial awareness, economic independence and the skills to be leaders, employees, employers and entrepreneurs in the workplace of the 21st century;
  • We will promote the health and wellbeing of our students, staff and the local community through our SMSC programmes;
