A really unique opportunity to discuss learning with the lovely students - how should teachers be trained? “Be happy!”


Particularly at this time of year, we advise that female students avoid walking to school alone or walking home alone. There have been a number of incidents over the last two months (mostly in the morning) in the borough. Our message: be streetwise, be alert, be safe.

Teacher of Spanish (P/ T) required at

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.


Music is taught on a carousel in Year 7/8 with students studying Music for half of the school year. It is available as an options subject in Year 9. We also teach it at GCSE.


Our Key Stage 3 schemes of work introduce students to a variety of musical styles and instruments.

  • Year 7- students begin to learn skills needed to play musical instruments as well as learning about performance techniques and apply them to an exploration of the following topics: African Drumming, Stomp, and Sing Up.
  • Year 8- students enhance their existing skills and learn new styles of music, including: Samba, Key board, Guitar, Band Work, and Orchestra.
  • Year 9- Students will have Music twice a week for the whole year. One lesson will focus on practical music and the other will take place in our Mac suite where students will be introduced to Music Technology. Over this year, students will explore a variety of schemes whilst developing existing musical abilities, including: Pop Song Writing, Jazz, Descriptive Music, Solo Performance and Pop Conventions through Time.


At KS4, we follow the OCR GCSE specification. This course consists of 3 components:

  • Component 1- Students will perform a piece using their chosen instrument. They will also create a composition to a brief.
  • Component 2- Students perform an ensemble performance. Students also create a composition set by the exam board.
  • Component 3- A written paper including listening and appraising, and aural recognition and context of unheard/unfamiliar music from various cultures, including: Rhythms of the World, Concerto through Time and Film Music.
