The Harris Academy Greenwich Curriculum


We believe that all children should learn a broad and balanced curriculum that has knowledge at its heart. We are unashamedly academic, and as a result we want students to learn and remember a lot. Powerful knowledge takes a student beyond their own experience. It is knowledge that many will not have access to at home, amongst their friends or in the communities in which they live. We are all the inheritors of the great ideas, writings and discoveries of the past and the young people of South London have a right to learn this knowledge. We are an inclusive academy, yet we are uncompromising in our belief that every student will study our curriculum. We know that some children will need more help in order to flourish and we work tirelessly to make sure they get the right support to catch-up. By learning our curriculum, we know that students will step into adulthood ready to meet the challenges of life in 21st century Britain.

During their first three years we prioritise breadth of curriculum so that students can widen their understanding and appreciation of the world; from music and art to science and computing. In Year 10 students will continue to study a core of English, maths, science, history or geography and a foreign language yet are able to shape their own curriculum by choosing from a wide range of GCSE options. At 6th form students choose from a traditional range of A levels which provide a gateway to the most competitive universities and apprenticeships. Through immersion in our curriculum students will excel not only in public examinations but in their interactions with the world, leading to happy and successful lives.

For a student to have truly learned something it must be in their long-term memory ready to be called forth in whichever context they need. Our teachers are subject experts and think carefully about how best to design and teach our curriculum so that it is remembered not merely encountered. We have an evidence informed approach to teaching. No fads, no knee-jerk initiatives, just great pedagogy that we know works. We sequence the curriculum so that new knowledge is founded upon old knowledge with learning building over time. We provide a challenging classroom environment, which encourages participation, curiosity and enquiry. We insist that students work hard outside the classroom. Our homework strategy complements the curriculum as it requires students to read, practise maths skills and revisit prior learning. Over time students learn more and remember more.

By learning a broad set of academic subjects, we know all students are prepared for the next step, including sixth form study and a competitive university for those who wish to pursue such a goal. Along the way we provide excellent careers advice and support so that students can build a plan for their future. We produce knowledgeable students who are at ease with themselves and ready for the challenges of the world. Every year our results at both GCSE and A level are second to none in the local area but our school is more than just an exam factory. Put simply; Harris Academy Greenwich is a place where all children will Step into their Greatness.
