Three New Harris Free Schools Approved

The Department for Education has approved three new Harris Federation free schools. Two of these will be in Greenwich and the third will be in Bromley. All three will build on the success of existing Harris academies in those areas.

Details are as follows:

  • Greenwich secondary school:

Working with the Royal Borough of Greenwich, and building on the success of Harris Academy Greenwich, this will be a secondary academy for boys. Greenwich predicts that an additional 210 places will be needed in the borough by 2021. The new school will provide 180 of these.

Harris Academy Greenwich is rated ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted and receives around seven applications per place available.

With a separate free school for girls opening in September 2018, the new Harris secondary will help to ensure a balance of places for boys and girls in the borough. 

  • Greenwich primary school:

The Royal Borough of Greenwich predicts that, in order to meet the need for primary places in Blackheath and Charlton, 105 new Reception places will be needed by 2021. The new Harris primary will deliver 90 of these.

It will work closely with one of the nearby Harris secondary academies –Harris Academy Greenwich or Harris Academy Falconwood, depending on the site chosen – so that children can have access to specialist secondary teachers and resources from as young as age 9.  In our other schools, we have found that children enjoy having this access and that it makes them much better prepared for the transition to secondary school at age 11.

  • Bromley secondary school:

This will be a co-educational secondary school in Sydenham. It will work closely with the successful Harris Girls’ Academy Bromley and Harris Academy Beckenham.

Bromley Council predicts that as many as 300 new Year 7 places could be needed in the borough by the early 2020s. Given our aim of finding a site in Sydenham, the school is likely to meet demand from Lewisham families as well.

We will also develop strong links between the new school and the ‘outstanding’ (Ofsted) Harris Primary Academy Kent House. Its pupils will be guaranteed a place at the new secondary school, with the remaining 120 places available for other families.

We look forward to working with the Department for Education's property company, LocatED, to find sites for the three schools. We will announce opening dates once the sites have been acquired.
