Well done to the winning Y7 team in today's library lesson. They used Reading Cloud to look up three fiction titles, each from a different section, and then managed to locate them on the shelves in less than 15 minutes. It was a brilliant effort from everyone in the class though! https://t.co/cyHM9bOuQn

A year 7 student returned "The Novice" today with the verdict "so good". Turns out that it was so good that he ended up buying the rest of the books in the series. What a great accolade! https://t.co/SobGwJs42W

Y8 really impressed at the first library lesson of 2022. Great focus on book borrowing which gave us plenty of time for quiet reading. We finished off with a Reading Cloud refresher which they whizzed through with flying colours. It is great to have the students back in school! https://t.co/keanON7dhX

Volleyball was a new sport for us less than a year ago, but it has been popular and students are keen for more fixtures! If you are a school local enough to Merton (South West London) and interested in any friendly fixtures for year 7-10, boys, girls or mixed, get in contact!

We’ve had many fixtures with over the years, but we were able to host them at our (relatively) new facilities for the first time today! A returning Girls Football fixture and the away team came out on top with U13’s and a draw with U15’s. Looking forward to more https://t.co/TlidOfkpAG

What great play in our South London league against Wallington Grammar ! This is a new league for us but playing at this high standard is motivating and great experience for the players. https://t.co/G2C2ZOXI3m

Welcome to Harris Academy Wimbledon

Thank you for taking the time to learn more about Harris Academy Wimbledon.

We are a co-educational secondary academy set up to provide an excellent education for children in Wimbledon. We opened our doors in 2018 and in November 2020 moved into our brand-new building with our first three year groups. We will grow year on year, eventually serving children ages 11-18.

Our academy is an exceptional place to learn, providing an ambitious but happy and inclusive environment. As well as strong pastoral support, we offer an enriching extra-curricular programme with over 40 different activities that students can choose from each week. As part of the Harris Federation, a highly successful group of academies in and around London, our students also benefit from wider opportunities and resources.

We have high expectations of our students of all starting points and abilities. To this end, we offer a tailored learning experience so they can achieve their full potential, with students streamed according to ability. Students who need the most stretch and challenge are grouped together and follow a challenging academic curriculum, but we are ambitious for every kind of learner with provision that includes tutoring and small-group sessions for students who need extra support.  All of our classes are in a mixed setting which encourages our girls and boys to work collaboratively and develop mutual respect. 

We know that our students will leave us academically successful, but we also want them to be well-rounded individuals with a highly developed social conscience, ready to lead in their communities and beyond. Our motto is ‘make a difference’ and our students and staff give nothing except their very best in pursuit of making a difference to their lives and the lives of others around them. 

Three words are crucial to how we guide students to be able to ‘make a difference’: independence, integrity and resilience.

Independence means we support students to develop their skills and attributes so they have everything they need to succeed. We set challenging targets and raise aspirations so every single one of our students reaches their potential.   

Integrity means staff and students must be fair and truthful and have the courage to take the right action in every situation, even when no-one is looking.

Resilience means we give students the tools to recover from difficulties. We show students how taking risks and making mistakes is all part of the learning journey. We also show students how hard work brings success, and support them to persevere with all challenges.

Please do visit us on our open days and chat to our students and teachers about their experiences here. It really is a wonderful school and we would be delighted to welcome you.
