Welcome from the Principal
Harris Academy Merton offers a rare educational opportunity for students and their parents. The children of local residents benefit from the backing of proven success that is the hallmark of our sponsor Lord Harris of Peckham. The support of the Harris federation guarantees traditional ethos of order, discipline and respect alongside a commitment to excellence in the very best of contemporary practice. The curriculum is focused on developing individual potential and preparing students for attaining personal contentment and the capacity to build a sound and comfortable career and life. This is achieved through a shared dedication to hard work and a belief that a specialised curriculum delivers the best life-enhancing options for those prepared to embrace our vision. Our focus on Enterprise and Sport adds a vocational dimension across the curriculum and complements other subjects of the National Curriculum. Our students develop a sense of achievement, well being and self confidence.
We will not flinch in our mission to achieve excellent standards and the fulfilment of high expectations. If you are like-minded enough to subscribe to this philosophy, please apply. All we ask is your pledge to improve the prospects of our students and your passionate support in making this Academy the pride of the local community. If you are willing to become an active partner then I look forward to working with you.
Mr. A. Halpin
