Welcome to Harris Academy Merton
At Harris Academy we promote the ethos 'Achievement is Success' and believe every student has the right to the highest standard of education so that they can accomplish their aspirations. Our aim is to give every student an educational experience that is enjoyable and holistic so that they develop into responsible, articulate and successful young people.
We combine the traditional values of strong discipline, good manners, respect and pride in appearance with contemporary best practice in teaching and technology. With these core values embedded, we develop our students into confident and capable individuals that have a desire to excel academically and personally now and in the future.
It is vital that whatever an individual student's starting point is, they are given the opportunities and experiences necessary to achieve their personal best. At Harris Academy Merton we are very fortunate to have highly skilled and dedicated staff who are committed to this purpose.
Selecting the right secondary school for your child is an act of trust. I hope that, once you come to know us, you will find that Harris Academy Merton is a school you can choose with confidence. I look forward to meeting you and welcoming you to Harris Academy Merton.
To help all our sixth form students to reach their full potential, we work with neighbouring Harris Academies as part of the Harris Federation Sixth Form to provide a very wide range of A level and BTEC level 3 courses.
Class sizes are small, resources are excellent, pastoral support is exceptional and teaching is outstanding.
Our sixth formers are role models for our younger students, demonstrating the heights that can be reached through the outstanding education they have received at the Academy. The vast majority go on to university, with an increasing number being offered places at the most prestigious institutions. Our leavers have the best possible futures, whatever their next steps.
We embrace students of all abilities and from all backgrounds, and our teachers take the time to understand the needs of each student - whether they are already doing very well, needing support or somewhere in the middle.
As part of our enterprising culture, we ensure that each of our students achieves and succeeds.
- offering an extensive and balanced curriculum which ensures students of all abilities enjoy learning and optimise their potential
- giving each student the individual care and attention they need to thrive and achieve their personal best
- treating each other with care and respect and maintaining a safe and purposeful environment
- running an enjoyable and exciting range of enrichment opportunities
- having high expectaitions and high-quality sixth form provision
Students are rewarded for developing the right behaviours and attitudes, for trying hard and being persistent, for a courteous and considerate manner, for attending regularly and for achieving thier personal best. They are taught the value of hard work and determination.
We hope that each one of our students finds in our academy a supportive and nurturing community.
