The hallmarks of a Harris Academy
It is the simplest of things that make Harris Academies schools where children enjoy learning and teachers enjoy teaching.
If you come to a Harris Academy you will always find:
- Traditional uniforms with smart and tidy students who take pride in themselves and in their Academy
- Self-disciplined, well-mannered students who are respectful of each other and their teachers
- A personal best culture with students who look forward to coming to school each day
- Well trained and highly resourced teachers who are ambitious for every student and ensure they are making the progress expected or preferably doing even better than this
- A Principal who knows the name and aspirations of every student
Things you will never find in a Harris Academy:
- Uninspired teaching
- Litter in the corridors or playground
- Graffiti on desks, on the toilet doors or anywhere else
- Students using mobile phones
- A child with nothing to do
