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 Governing Body

The Academy is a member of the Harris Federation. Ultimate responsibility for the Academy rests with the Board of Trustees of the Federation, (Federation governance details and scheme of delegation can be found here), but much of the work of the Board is delegated to the Local Governing Body (the Governors of the Academy). Some Governors are appointed by the Federation whilst others are elected by parents or guardians of students at the Academy or by staff. The details of the Governors at Harris Academy Bermondsey are shown below.

The Governing Body works together to oversee the development of a school and has the following key roles and responsibilities:

  • ensure the provision of quality education

  • manage finance and property

  • employ staff

  • fulfil the role of a critical friend

  • recognise and celebrate achievement

  • provide support and encouragement
