A message from the Executive Principal

We are an outstanding academy in which children experience the very best that has been thought and said. This first tentative step will be the beginning of a 7-year journey with us, during which we have one central aim: to furnish them with choice.

What we mean by this is simple. Our hope is that, when your child leaves our academy, they leave with more choices than they had when they arrived.  They may choose to study law at the University of Cambridge, or medicine at the University of Manchester; they may choose an apprenticeship in carpentry, or a career as an entrepreneur. They may, as I once did, choose to teach. Whatever they do, we want them to have choice.

That is why our curriculum and our teaching are as ambitious as they are.  If we have high hopes for your children’s futures, those hopes must be reflected in the expectations we have of them.  Our teachers are subject experts, and we see their role as communicating their knowledge and inspiring the next generation of thinkers through exposure to a highly academic curriculum.

Our behavioural expectations are simple too and it is our hope that our young people will become role models and leaders in their community. We 'sweat the small stuff' so the big stuff doesn’t happen. We do not see warmth and strict as mutually exclusive. Like you are at home, we are strict on behaviour because  we care about our young people and their futures.

These are strange times, and though we cannot at this moment invite you through our doors to see for yourselves the truly special place that Harris Academy is, we hope that our video and the materials on our website give you a flavour of what we are about.

If you do decide to choose our school, we very much look forward to working with you during the next phase of your child’s life journey and education. Harris Federation academies are a collaborative group of academies with drive and ambition. We want the very best for your child and for them to develop all their talent and interests whether in reading or in experimenting. Your child will benefit from being a part not just of our single academy but will benefit from the opportunities created by the rich and varied academic and sporting programmes that the Harris Federation promotes and the trips and visits that make learning fulfilling.

On behalf of all the staff at Harris Academy Tottenham, I look forward to welcoming you to the Academy in the near future.

Mr. Nick Soar

Executive Principal
