Harris Academies
All Academies in our Federation aim to transform the lives of the students they serve by bringing about rapid improvement in examination results, personal development and aspiration.


University Preparation - Year 12

Through our partnership with Harris Westminster Sixth Form, we are able to offer a unique timetable that reflects university style learning. Students attend weekly lectures from leading academics and professionals during Lab and they deliver student-led seminars as part of Societies, at the Westminster campus. This depth of learning equips them for the rigours and breadth of any university course. 

Students begin their university preparations in the Autumn term of Year 12. They are introduced to the Universities section of the Westminster library, guided through the UCAS process, shown how to research courses, and prompted to think critically about their existing attainment and be strategic in boosting their predicted grades. 

Medical applicants are given nuanced and extensive support through university lectures, work experience placements and volunteering in medical or carers contexts. In addition to a number of trips that we organise to a diverse range of institutions, we endeavour to show students exactly what is required to develop a genuine commitment and love of their subject. 

Students receive personalised support and guidance from the Harris Federation Careers Team.

All students are also enrolled onto the Harris Experience Advanced Programme, to provide a range of opportunities that further extend learning.
