At Harris Academy Merton we promote the ethos 'Achievement is Success’ and believe every student has the right to the highest standard of education so that they can accomplish their aspirations. Our aim is to give every student an educational experience that is enjoyable and holistic so that they develop into responsible, articulate and successful young people.
We combine the traditional values of strong discipline, good manners, respect and pride in appearance with contemporary best practice in teaching and technology. With these core values embedded, we develop our students into confident and capable individuals that have a desire to excel academically and personally now and in the future.
Students are rewarded for developing the right behaviours and attitudes, for trying hard and being persistent, for a courteous and considerate manner, for attending regularly and for achieving their personal best. They are taught the value of hard work and determination.
