Staff Testimonials

Kirsty Ennew
The most striking difference from other schools I have worked in, having joined HAGR in September, is the time we spend discussing development of our teaching practice to help our students. The CPD here is always thought-provoking and genuinely supports staff in striving for mastery in one’s subject area.

Senior LP English

Jennifer McMillan
I have never developed so quickly as a teacher as I have at this school. There are a myriad of opportunities to stretch, reflect and adapt yourself. The members of staff I’ve worked with have supported and encouraged this growth through their dedication to their own professional development and to the improvement of the school. Teaching and learning is at the heart of this school which provides the students with outstanding learning and the staff with outstanding professional development.

Jennifer McMillan

Senior LP Maths

Darren Pearce
Since joining in September 2013 I have realised that teaching and learning is an ever evolving process as opposed to a journey with a clearly defined summit. Working in a culture of high challenge with high rapport has led me to this realisation and means I am learning as much as the students I teach.

Darren Pearce

Head of Humanities

Ellie Forward
Harris Greenwich has been invaluable in terms of my professional development. My contributions were quickly acknowledged and opportunities were created for me to support in the development of teaching and learning throughout the Academy and across the Federation. This is definitely a place where clear values are underpinned by a culture of both trust and support. I have never worked in a centre so dedicated to the professional development of others.

Working in HAGR has been the most rewarding step in my teaching career so far. Great students, fantastic staff and a clear sense of purpose. The school has helped me envision the kind of teacher I want to become, and offers me the support to get there.

I absolutely love working at Harris Academy Greenwich. Every day is different, yet I always laugh and smile. The pupils and teachers are incredible and both want to be challenged. The support system they have in place for new teachers and existing teachers is overwhelming. Harris academy has inspired me to become an outstanding teacher, and in turn, inspire the pupils around me.
