At the end of each term HAB girls have the opportunity to write a postcard to praise someone in our school community. They do so anonymously and 'post' them to be delivered. The idea came from one of our brilliant Year 9 girls.

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.

Ofsted

Harris Academy Bermondsey has been rated as ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted for the second time in a row. Download the full report.

Ofsted inspectors visited the school for two days in March 2015 and judged the school to be ‘Outstanding’ overall, as well as in each of the individual categories they looked at: achievement, teaching, behaviour, and leadership and management. We are the only secondary school for girls in Southwark to have been rated 'Outstanding' under the new Ofsted framework, introduced in 2015.


What Ofsted says...

“The curriculum caters exceptionally well for students’ personal needs and for their academic progress.”

 “Students’ progress in all subjects is at least good and often outstanding. In many subjects, students’ progress is well ahead of national expectations.”

“Last year every student who left the academy at the end of Year 11 either continued their education or entered the world of work.”

“Arrangements to promote students’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development and to prepare them for life in modern day British society are excellent.”

“Teaching and support meet the needs of the full range of pupil groups exceptionally well. Teachers and teaching assistants are very aware of students’ needs.”

“The behaviour of students is outstanding. Students are spirited, energetic, courteous and well mannered. They are also very caring and supportive towards each other.”


"Strong relationships with parents"

There was also recognition in the report of HAB’s strong relationship with its parents. Inspectors noted that “parents are pleased with their children’s progress. The academy works effectively to keep parents fully aware of how well their children are doing”.

Alan Dane, the Principal of HAB, said: “We are delighted with this feedback from Ofsted and so very proud of our girls and our staff. They work incredibly hard to create an exceptionally happy, productive school. Together we will continue to build on the excellent progress here to maintain this high level of success for years to come.”
