Curriculum Overview

This page explains our curriculum intent and provides an overview of the curriculum at Harris Academy Peckham.

Students experience a depth and mastery of subject specific knowledge and skills.

Subject specific knowledge and skills are taught in depth to ensure a mastery approach, allowing students to develop into Mathematicians, Geographers, Historians, Artists, Musicians etc…  Students are challenged by our ambitious curriculum which prepares them for the next stage of their education after GCSEs.  Students experience a clear progression of delivered knowledge in their subject areas that intertwines within the variety of subjects studied both at KS3 and KS4.


IMG 138Students become lifelong and independent learners.

Our curriculum aims to enrich students and create a love of learning and thirst for knowledge.  Through our personal development curriculum in tutor time, students are equipped with the knowledge and skills to be able to independently enhance their learning outside of the classroom, utilising the internet, our library and amenities within the local community.  Students use their knowledge organisers to consolidate their learning each week.  Enrichment outside of the Academy through Harris experiences, links with universities and other educational enhancement opportunities, provides students with further skills to become more independent.


Students develop critical thinking and excellent communication skills.

In lessons students are encouraged to problem solve and develop their analytical, synthesis and evaluation skills.  Oracy is a key focus to ensure students become confident and coherent communicators.  Enrichment on offer also enhances these skills and provides a platform for students to excel in a communication driven world.  LEAP days provide a further platform for students to develop their critical thinking and communication skills.


IMG 023Literacy and numeracy are at the core.

We recognise that these two areas are fundamental in the progression of student learning across all subject areas.  Our WORD (writing, oracy and reading development) initiative ensures that students regularly undertake extended writing in lessons and time to read is incorporated throughout all subject areas.  DEAR time in tutor time and during English lessons continues this focus.  Numeracy is also a drive within each subject area as well as the focus on ensuring students are financially capable and aware.


Students are world ready and develop into global citizens.

Our curriculum encompasses all aspects of SMSC and British values to ensure students have the understanding and ability to stay safe in the world and leave a positive footprint within their local community, country and the world.  Students are given the opportunities to experience learning outside of the classroom, as well as community projects.  The local context of the Academy is embedded into the curriculum to ensure that students are world ready and understand and embrace their own context within the local community and London.  Our ethos of Leadership, Enquiry, Aspiration and Perseverance also supports this.
