Welcome from the Executive Principal
Harris Academy Wimbledon is a brand new secondary school opening in September 2018.
I have worked for the Harris Federation for coming up to eight years. Firstly, developing Harris Boys’ Academy East Dulwich (a new academy that started with just a Year 7 and is now one of the leading boys’ schools in the country for pupil progress) as Vice Principal; and then as Principal of Harris Academy Morden for the last four years (currently ranked within the top 2% of schools for pupil progress).
After much planning, all of us at Harris are thrilled that Harris Academy Wimbledon is now proceeding to open and will add another co-educational school to the choices parents in the area can make.
We want to engage with local people to share our aspirations and plans for the school and are very interested in your views. We are grateful to parents from across Wimbledon who have offered their support as we worked to get permission from the Department for Education to open this school – many of you have a stake in this school and we are therefore highly interested in your views on our proposed admissions policy.
Harris Academy Wimbledon will be run by the same experienced leaders as Harris Academy Morden. Our brand new building will be at the heart of the regeneration of the High Path area. The local community will be able to use our facilities out of school hours.
With the support of our community, I know that Harris Academy Wimbledon will match the high standards Harris academies are known for, and that we will take excellent care of students.
