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.

Truancy Bus

Read an article in the Local Guardian about the Academy's Truancy bus.

Medical Appointments

Whenever possible, the Academy asks that medical appointments be made out of school hours.  If this is unavoidable, proof of the appointment will be required (appointment card/letter) otherwise it is very probable that your child will be given a late detention.  Thank you for your continued support and co-operation.


Parent/carers should be aware that students can accumulate late marks, not just for arriving late at the Academy in the morning, but also being late for lesson registration.

Persistent Absence

Read the Government's guidance on Persistent Absence (PA) and about the decision to class students with 15% or greater absence in an Academic Year as a PA student.
