Welcome to Harris Academy Bromley
I am delighted to welcome you to the Harris Girls' Academy Bromley website. We are a small but hugely successful Academy in New Beckenham. The provisional Progress 8 figure for 2017 is 1.06 and our average grade at A-Level is a grade B. This means that we are now, the most successful school in the borough of Bromley and within the top 1% of schools in the country for progress.
It is with enormous pride that I introduce our incredible school and the opportunities that benefit the girls so much.
As a local parent myself, I know how important the decision about which school to send your daughter to is and about the relationship of trust that begins when a parent chooses a school to educate their daughter at. This is not a relationship which is taken lightly.
We have the highest expectations of the girls (and boys in the Sixth Form) and we make no excuses for that; I believe that we should all practice courtesy, consideration and cooperation and we instil this in the girls from their very first day.
Mr David Astin
Co-educational Sixth Form
Our co-educational Sixth Form is part of the Harris Federation Sixth Form, consisting of nine sites and benefits from an outstanding central leadership team, as well as outstanding leaders on site. The Sixth Form Federation has been judged outstanding on a number of occasions and we are proud to be founding members.
Being part of the Sixth Form Federation means that the Academy benefits enormously from increased opportunities that come from being part of a Sixth Form with over 200 students. Importantly though, the Sixth Form at Harris Girls’ Academy Bromley maintains its own distinctive ethos as it is small and the students benefit from a personalised and inclusive approach to care and support.
With 22.1% A*/A, 80% A*/C and 100% A*-E and an average grade of a B, we are one of the most successful Sixth Forms in London. This coupled with our success with vocational courses (average grade of Distinction*) means that whether you want to go off to one of the best universities in the country or into an apprenticeship, we are very well placed to help you. Last year one in four university applicants gained places at the prestigious Russell Group of universities and just under half gained a place at a ‘top third’ university. Harris Academy Bromley Campus students gained places at universities including Kings, SOAS, Queen Mary and Sheffield.
Extra-curricular activities are extensive and we have students involved in Harris Experience Advanced, supporting charities abroad, travelling to NASA, Borneo and many other exciting opportunities to extend learning. The Sixth Formers have a dedicated Study Centre with fantastic, brand new facilities and they benefit from 10 brand new science labs, brand new DT and Art Facilities, Sports facilities and specialist classrooms.
When deciding which Sixth Form to go to, we believe that it is important to go and see the Sixth Form in action to get a really good flavour of what the Sixth Form is like; how you will settle in and the level of support that you think you will receive. Indeed, best of all is to talk to our existing Sixth Formers about what it is like to study here.
