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.



The 90 students awarded places here will know that we have extremely high expectations, both for their day-to-day performance and for their futures.

The objectives we have set ourselves to be achieved by 2016 are:

  • For all students in year 11 or post 16 to achieve 5 or more A*– C grades at GCSE.
  • For all students to make better than expected progress in both English and Mathematics.
  • For 100% of students in Year 8 to successfully return to their mainstream school and complete their education without being permanently excluded.
  • For 100% of students in Year 8 to make measurable progress at Harris Aspire but also to continue to do so once they are re-integrated at their mainstream school.
  • Attendance above 93%.
  • No student to leave Harris Aspire as a NEET (Not in Education, Employment or Training).

We will achieve these objectives by addressing the individual needs of students; breaking down barriers to learning; personalising their curriculum and teaching styles; providing high quality support for a wide range of different needs from Day One of a student’s Harris Aspire education; and putting in place appropriate stretch and challenge for more able students who have fallen behind.
