Welcome to Harris Academy Wimbledon

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

We are a brand-new co-educational secondary academy set up to provide an excellent, well-rounded education for local children in Wimbledon. We welcomed our first Year 7 students in 2018 and we will grow year on year, eventually serving children ages 11-18.  

Our academy is an outstanding place to learn, providing an innovative, inclusive and happy environment for our young people. As well as promoting academic achievement across the curriculum and an enriching extra-curricular programme, we support students to make decisions wisely so they are fully prepared for adult life. As part of the Harris Federation, a family of academies across London, our students also benefit from wider opportunities and resources.

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.
