Learning Ethos

Harris Academy Peckham is an exciting, mixed comprehensive school admitting children of all abilities. We believe education is a partnership between the home and the school. We will create a safe, secure and rigorous learning environment in which all students can explore their talents, achieve their aspirations and build self-esteem.

Harris Academy Peckham provides a broad, balanced curriculum with equal opportunities for all students, including those socially, economically or emotionally disadvantage or with Special Educational Needs. High quality professional support staff, including learning support assistants, mentors and colleagues with primary school experience will work with students across a range of subjects at Key Stage 3. This means students can be taught by a smaller number of individual tutors, and will be able to improve their literacy and numeracy skills to take full advantage of the range of courses open to them.

Similarly, provision for the gifted and talented, notably in science, music, technology, modern languages and sorts is being significantly enhanced. Additional opportunities for specialist teaching and learning is to be offered to the benefit of these young people.

The full national curriculum is offered, with business, enterprise and the performing arts as specialisms. A great choice of vocational and academic options is available in years 10 and 11.
