Admissions Now Open
Thank you for expressing an interest in the new Harris academy opening in Wimbledon next year. I am delighted to report that we will be holding an Open Evening on Tuesday 3rd October at Merton Arts Space, Compton Rd, Wimbledon, London SW19 7QA, with information sessions starting at 7.30pm and 8.30pm.
We are now accepting applications for year 7 in September 2018.
Please note, we will not be part of the Merton coordinated admissions process for September 2018, therefore current Year 6 children will need to apply directly to us.
The new academy, which will have 120 places from September 2018, will initially be based in a refurbished adult education centre in Whatley Avenue before moving to its new purpose-built school in High Path in 2020.
Harris Academy Wimbledon will provide an outstanding education in an innovative, inclusive and happy environment. As well as promoting high levels of academic achievement and encouraging full participation in a range of extra-curricular opportunities, we want to support our students to make decisions wisely, ready for the challenges they will face as adults.
As part of the Harris Federation, which already runs 45 successful schools in and around London, we have a great deal of experience of opening new schools. The temporary accommodation we will use for the first two years will be comfortable and well-resourced and our first year sevens will benefit from the undivided attention of our teaching staff as well as leading the way for the years that follow.
I look forward to meeting as many of you as possible at the Open Evening. In the meantime, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
