14 Y11 students visited Oxford University for a taster day on Wednesday and left inspired that with hard work and commitment to their study a future place is a realistic aspiration!


What an exceptional start Harris Academy Battersea Y9 students have made to their new STREET ART project!


Well done to our Student Leadership Team who go above and beyond in their meetings to ensure collaboration across KS3. Their innovative ideas to amplify student voice within the school, whilst also providing a direct channel of communication are greatly appreciated.


Some of our female students attended a panel discussion and Q+A from seven inspirational female leaders from a variety of industries. Louise in Y10 was braved to preform some of her poems in front of everyone.


30 Year 10 pupils went to the Apple head offices in Battersea Power Station to learn all about how Apple Books are published and created and to get an insight into the digital publishing world on 6.03.24.


10 of our 6th Form students went to open their fast in Battersea Art Centre as part of London's first Open Iftar event this year! It stands as the UK’s largest and acclaimed community event during Ramadan.


Our Y9 Debate Mate Club achieved fantastic success in their Pitch Project. They showed a fantastic growth in confidence, and presented with clarity and composure, sharing a range of thoughtful ideas. This was part of a large national competition, and they were placed fourth!


Congratulations to the HABS boys' and girls' basketball teams. The boys won vs Ark Putney and Chestnut Grove with 16-2 & 15-7 and the girls won vs Harris Clapham with 55-28! Most importantly they played for each other and supported each other.


Congratulations to the incredible Y7's who participated in the Harris Spelling Bee! Your resilience and outstanding sportsmanship throughout the 5 challenging rounds are truly commendable. You've not only showcased your spelling prowess but also set a shining example of teamwork!


Well done, to HABS KS5 students who have raised more than £200 for Doctors without Borders to support them with aiding medical care across the world in places of conflict!


Big thank you to for helping our wonderful student, Chelsea, to tick this off her bucket list! She got to watch the game, meet the team, and received a signed Hockey stick by the players! Big shout out to Graham for organising!


So thrilled to share the achievements of 6 formers who were rewarded an Ice-Skating trip. It was a celebration of their proactive approach in seeking extracurricular opportunities and dedicated efforts towards personal development. Massive well done to our students!


Enjoy the following stills from the Year 11 Drama Component 2 Final Performance. Students put on a show of their best Crucible and Top Girls scenes exploring the theme of POWER.


Well Done to all of HABS CNAT and Vocation Year 11 students for getting their coursework and performance portfolios completed!


Congratulations to Joel Sea and Roman Bafi on their outstanding achievements this term. Roman has been offered scholarships from the San Francisco Ballet School and Joel is the Regional Jack Petchey Speak Out Champion. We are immensely proud!


HABS Y13 students visited Imperial College London and interacted with Imperial staff and students, giving them a glimpse of what life at university would be like. The trip motivated our students to pursue higher academic and career goals.


Harris Academy Y10&11 Boys' Basketball team had an amazing season and made us very proud. They won all their matches in the Wandsworth Borough School games on displayed team play, strategic brilliance and an excellent representation of Harris Battersea's values

Two students who we are especially proud of, Chelsea and Tianna, had to show incredible resilience to be able to sit their examinations. Nevertheless, both students managed to secure strong passes and above in all of their subjects. Chelsea’s distinction star in Sport Science and Tianna picking up a grade 7 in English Literature were special highlights.  

Many students continued their education with HABS in our successful Sixth Form, with others going on to other great Post-16 provisions around London. We are excited to see how students embrace the opportunities these results open up for their futures.

Mr Comerford, the new Head of Academy, said: “Our Academy’s mission is to develop aspirational young people to thrive in a changing world. Everyone in our HABS community is so proud of all the students for what they have achieved this year.

"Our core value of resilience could not have been more clearly demonstrated by this cohort. Their dedication and hard work, in combination with the outstanding teaching and learning delivered by our experienced staff, has led to this success.

"Thank you to everyone involved in the Academy and in supporting our students, especially parents and staff.”
