Harris City Academy Crystal Palace rated ‘Outstanding’ for third consecutive time

Harris City Academy Crystal Palace has been rated ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted for a third time in a row. Opening as Harris City Technology College in 1991, the school became an academy in 2007 and has achieved Ofsted’s top rating in each of its last three inspections. Ofsted inspectors visited the school last month and found it to be 'Outstanding' overall and in each of the individual categories they looked at: achievement, teaching, behaviour, and leadership and management. The Sixth Form provision was also awarded the highest grade. In their report, inspectors said: “Students consistently show great pleasure and a very strong commitment to their learning across all year groups.” “Teachers and classroom assistants model a love of learning through their expertise and commitment to their subject.” “The outstanding curriculum helps to ensure that students achieve highly and rapidly develop the personal skills and qualities needed for success in the next stage of their education and in the world of work.” Staff “at all levels in the school carefully track the progress of individual students and provide rapid support for students where required.” In the Sixth Form, students “are immersed in high quality learning experiences that develop their knowledge and skills and they receive excellent preparation for further study in higher education.” The Ofsted report also noted the benefit of the resources and support provided by the Harris Federation, which were “instrumental in establishing and supporting development at the academy”, and in encouraging students’ “high aspirations about progression into higher education” and the world of work. Dr Hilary Macaulay, the Principal of the Academy, whose “excellent leadership” was highly praised, said: “We are delighted with the recent feedback from Ofsted, which recognises the continued success and hard-work of students and staff. We focus on delivering excellent teaching and I am proud that our students share a love of learning with our staff. We are always aiming to build upon our successes and a third ‘Outstanding’ rating in a row demonstrates our commitment to high achievement, which we hope to maintain and build upon for many more years to come.” Sir Dan Moynihan, Chief Executive of the Harris Federation, said: “When Lord Harris established this as his first school, he wanted it to be a flagship for education in London. I am delighted that it continues to be so and congratulate all the staff and students on their success. Becoming outstanding is a significant achievement – retaining this level of success is even harder so it is particularly pleasing for everyone at the school.” The full report is available here.
