The Year 10 students behaved with absolute professionalism throughout; they were intelligent, inquisitive, receptive and focused in their approach to all tasks and activities. They met several industry professionals who also remarked on their intelligence and creativity.

Harris Academy Bermondsey opened as a City Academy in 2006, replacing Aylwin Girls High School. Prior to conversion, Aylwin had underperformed for three years in a row, between 2001 and 2003. Since opening as an academy, the school has been judged Outstanding on both occasions, with Ofsted praising the ‘excellent support’ of the Harris Federation in supporting disadvantaged students.
