“That is part of the beauty of all literature. You discover that your longings are universal longings, that you're not lonely and isolated from anyone. You belong.”

F. Scott Fitzgerald

At Harris Academy Tottenham, we believe that every child deserves to explore the wonders of the English Language, both through personal discovery and through the study of canonical and cultural literature.

We are dedicated to ensuring that every child is an excellent communicator. We embed a passion for reading and writing and challenge pupils through our progressive curriculum. Our curriculum is both engaging and challenging, and aims to equip pupils with clear foundations in reading and writing skills, whilst providing an exposure to a wealth of literary genres and periods.

We have taken an interweaving approach to our curriculum - and so each unit is composed of Reading, Writing and Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar components. Pupils are encouraged to explore how all these elements work together in order to develop their love and appreciation of language and literature. Our Year 7 and 8 pupils are taught English for 5 periods a week and at Year 9, pupils are taught for 6 periods per week. At Key Stage 4 and 5 our students benefit from 6 periods per week.

Mission statement

Our pupils will be able to analyse, discuss and theorise about a wide range of literary works from different genres. They will be critical thinkers, adept at defending their own points of view through debate and cogent written explanations. They recognise, appreciate and make good judgements about their written expression and frequently demonstrate flair and originality.
