We've never found any weapons or drugs during our random searches - the fact that we actually conduct these searches helps to keep it this way. https://t.co/KaN1q07TNM

From this week we are doubling the number of random searches of students’ bags, jackets and lockers. It’s crucial we keep up an active and visible deterrent so students don’t make daft decisions and bring in something which would endanger our community.

  • You must submit an application form to your Local Education Authority if applying online by 31st October 2017. A place at any secondary school can only be offered if an application has been received.

  • Think carefully about the order in which you place your chosen schools on the form.  You should enter your most preferred school first on the list. Please remember to enter the full name of Harris Academy Greenwich - there are several different Harris Academies and an entry of simply “Harris Academy” will be ignored.

  • Be sure to include at least 3 different schools on your preference form.

  • In March 2018, the local authority will notify you of the school where your child has been offered a place for September 2018.  If you are happy with the offer, you MUST ACCEPT this place by returning the acceptance form to Admissions at the Academy.

For Parents/Carers who Wish to Appeal

Parent(s) wishing to appeal against the Academy’s decision on admissions, for any year group, should complete an Appeal Form (see below) stating the reason for the appeal, based on the published Admissions Criteria.

If you wish to appeal you must contact Admissions at the Academy who will send you an appeals form to complete.

Completed forms should be sent to the Clerk to the Appeal Panel at:

Harris Academy Greenwich, Middle Park Avenue, Eltham, London SE9 5EQ

  • Only one appeal per application is allowed.
  • Appeals are conducted in person, and you may bring a friend.

The Appeal Hearing

The Academy will arrange for an Independent Appeals Panel to consider the Academy's reasons for refusal and your reasons for wanting to attend the Academy.  

The Panel will consist of 3 people (2 will have education experience and one will be an independent person with no education experience).

The Panel will consider the case put forward by you and the Academy. They must consider the admission arrangements for the Academy and the reasons why you want to attend that particular school.  The Panel must exercise its discretion by balancing the weight of your argument (for wanting to attend) against the Academy’s reasons for refusal i.e. the prejudice that one more student would cause to the education of the students already offered and the Health and Safety of all the students already attending the Academy, also taking into account the Academy's published admission arrangements.  

The decision of the Independent Appeals Panel is binding on the admissions authority and the Parents.

We serve our local community and aim to create a unique and outstanding place of learning for all, regardless of ability and background. We don't play admissions games: there are no tricks, no tests, no catches. We serve our local community and expect our students to make outstanding progress regardless of ability or background.

We have 180 places in Year 7. Preference will be given to those closest to the school and those with siblings already at the Academy. You can download our full admissions policy from the Academy website.
