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.



Welcome to Harris Academy Battersea

As a new school in Wandsworth, I would like to welcome you to our academy. Our aim is clear: we wish to transform the education of our students so that they can fulfil every inch of their potential and talent. I want every student to experience success, hard-fought success, the fruits of which will stay with them for the rest of their lives. During our first year I have witnessed an outstanding group of students give their all and rise to every challenge that has been put in front of them. I could not be more proud of the individuals who walk through our school gates every morning; each day their heads a little higher, standing a little taller because of what they achieved the day before.

During the year, there has been an incredible amount of work from both students and teachers alike and this has been justly rewarded in the Summer's examination results. Our A-level results now place us as the top state school in Wandsworth with 65% of A-level entries between A*-B and 88% of entries between A*-C, a superb effort on the part of everyone in our academy. We are also now the top performing non-selective state school in Wandsworth for GCSEs with 68% of students achieving 5A*-C including English and Maths and rank third overall. This is an increase of 23% on last year and will place us as one of the most improved schools in the country when the national performance tables are released. We are not complacent however, behind every percentage point lies a child's future and until all of these figures are as close to 100% as we can make them, we will never rest. Equally, when national reporting moves to a figure recorded as 'Progress 8' next year,  our provisional score of 0.83 will place us well above the 0.50 required by OfSTED to be classed as an outstanding school, a grading which means our community will at last have a school of which it can be rightfully proud.
