Principal's Welcome

HeadWelcome back to Harris Academy Battersea

Harris Academy Battersea is now in its fifth year and during the time it has been open it has established itself as one of the highest performing schools in London. In 2018, we achieved an OfSTED outstanding judgment and World Class status. A success that is down to the hard work and tenacity of our teachers and students who put in many additional hours to ensure the students at Battersea achieve the best they possibly can.  

With a provisional figure of +1.30 for Progress 8 this year, nearly three times higher than the +0.5 threshold set by OfSTED for 'Outstanding', our hope is that we can improve on this further still. It means that a student who is predicted 10 'C' grades in a normal school would achieve 6 'B' grades and 4 'A' grades in our academy. Also pleasing is that we are a school that helps students achieve irrespective of country of birth or social demographic: there was virtually no gap in the progress of students to whom English is a first language or a second language and students who come from homes with less money than the national average were on an equal footing with those above.

In terms of raw results we are also the highest achieving school in Wandsworth with 78% of students obtaining 4+ including English and Mathematics. Our success is not limited to GCSE results alone. At A-level, we are one of the top schools in the country for progress last year and with an incredible 62% of students obtaining a 'B' grade or better, we were the highest achieving school in Wandsworth.

We are a school that stands by its inclusive values. We are not a school that selects its intake based on prior attainment - we do not care where people come from; we only care about where they get to. We are a community school and we will always aim to serve it as best we can. The school aims to be a specialist in every area of the curriculum. Should a student wish to be a scientist, lawyer, actor or artist then we have some of the very best teachers in the country to help them achieve it. 

The students in our school are ambassadors for what all young people should aspire to be; they are a group of students who give their all and rise to every challenge that is put in front of them. I could not be more proud of the individuals who walk through the gates of our school every morning; each day their heads are held a little higher and they stand a little taller because of what they achieved the day before.

The staff, just like the students, will always aim to better themselves. We want to be one of the most outstanding schools in the whole country and provide for your children, the future they deserve.

This is the community’s school and should you ever wish to visit and see it for yourself then you are more than welcome any day of the week and without appointment. Equally, should you wish to apply then please do so by clicking here.
