Covid-19 - Updates From the Principal

On this page, we will update you with key information relating to the school and Covid-19, so that you always have the latest details in one place.


Update: 26th May 2021

Dear Year 11 and Parents/Carers,

We all appreciate what a challenging year this has been for our students. For those at a critical time in their academic career, that challenge has been unprecedented. The way Year 11 have approached this challenging time during remote provision and through their assessments has shown incredible character and resilience.

For those who continue with us next year, I look forward to continuing that journey with you, for those who are moving onto other sixth form provisions or apprentices, I wish you the best of luck and hope to hear of your successes.

Mostly, I would like to thank students, parents and carers for the support they have shown the school over the last five years and for being so adaptable in the face of so much change, you are indeed students ‘who will thrive in this changing world’. The school and your teacher will be in touch regularly over the next few weeks to help support with transitions but also to celebrate your time at Battersea.

Good luck Year 11 in everything that you do.

Yours sincerely,

Miss Leigh


Message from Mr Myers and Miss Bello

It is with great sadness that I write to confirm that the last on-site school day for Year 11 students will be Friday 28th May. Year 11 have shown incredible resilience over the last two years and it has been a privilege to work with them as they have met the challenges that the period has brought, both academically and personally.

In order to support students in their transitions to further education, a programme of activities has been arranged to ensure that the students make informed choices about their future careers. This will be a mixture of virtual work experience, guided taster resources for the transition to Year 12 (at Battersea or elsewhere) and suggested enrichment activities. Students will need to register on the Year 11 Microsoft Teams group by 10am each day.


Week beginning

Suggested activity

7th June

Year 11 students will complete their work experience virtually. All students have received logins for this. If there are any queries please contact Ms Vernon at I.Vernon@harrisbattersea.org.uk

14th and 21st June

9-12pm – Complete the transition activities for their chosen A level subjects. The resources can be found on the school website and can be accessed using the password HABS2021:

1-3pm- Complete the enrichment activities suggested. These activities include free museum tours, podcasts and online theatre shows.

There will also be a trip to Chessington World of Adventures to those who have returned the permission slip on 24th June. We look forward to enjoying the company of the students on this day.


Results day

GCSE results day will be on 12th August 2021. More information on the organisation of this day will be sent out closer to the time.

In closing, I would like to thank you for the support that you have given to the school and more importantly the students over the last 5 years. This support will ensure that students continue to develop into aspirational young people who thrive in a changing world as they move on to their next steps.

Yours thankfully,

Mr Myers


Update: 9th May 2021

Dear Parents/Carers,  

Thank you for your support in completing both the PCR and LFD tests over the last few weeks. Students have been brilliant and really demonstrated our core values of knowledge, integrity and resilience. 

It is clear that these tests are helping to identify asymptomatic cases which will help keep all students, staff and their families safe and ‘thriving in this changing world.’ It is more vital than ever that we complete these tests at home with the positive cases found in the academy last week.  

The surge PCR testing is now complete in Wandsworth and will not take place from this week. However, we will continue to complete two LFDs each week. We will provide new packs of tests every few weeks. Each pack has a registered code which is recorded against each student’s name as we have been asked to track this process.  

Students will need to complete two tests per week and report the results to NHS Test and Trace; there is a link below to facilitate this. If a student tests positive through the LFD at home, they must book a PCR test immediately. 

Tests should be taken 3-5 days apart. To ensure this, we need students to complete the tests on a Wednesday and Sunday evening. Parents must inform us of the result of the PCR/LTF as we will still have the normal COVID safety measures to follow with close contacts and bubble classes. 

Click HERE to inform the school of the home test results. 

Click HERE to report the results to NHS Test and Trace.

You should report all results to NHS Test and Trace as soon as the test is completed, either online or by telephone, as set out in the home test kit instructions.

If a student tests positive, the household should self-isolate as normal. It is important that we all continue to do our part to safeguard everyone here at the Academy, at home and within the wider community. Although lockdown will soon end, the virus still exists and therefore the completion of these tests at home is extremely important.  

Click HERE to see a video that talks you through how to complete the tests at home.  

Click HERE to see the government guidance.

Family members of students are entitled to tests. This can be booked by clicking HERE.

We are unclear if home testing will continue all term, but the Government has assured us that the situation will be reviewed regularly. Thank you for your continued support. By working together, we are ‘developing aspirational young people who thrive in a changing world.’
