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.


EDUVol2-1770611HighRes_BWSpecialisms of Oracy and Enterprise will permeate the curriculum at Harris Aspire. We will ensure all students leave with highly developed communication skills alongside an enterprising and “can do” attitude to learning. Together these specialisms will open doors to a wide range of successful pathways.

We have chosen Oracy as a specialism because our experience is that many students whose behaviour is challenging have problems with articulating their views and feelings and sustaining a discussion with adults and peers – this can be addressed by giving them language and communication skills (oracy). Students often lack resilience in their personal lives – events knock them off course easily. By teaching them to be enterprising in their personal lives, giving them strategies for coping with setbacks and the ability to make the most of opportunities, we can help them succeed. This is the basis of our Enterprise specialism.
