Parents wishing to apply for a place will be able to name Harris Academy Sutton on their Common Application Form. We offer 195 places each year.
Like all secondary schools, if we are oversubscribed, children with education, health and care plans will be offered the first places. Looked-after and previously looked-after children will have next priority.
After this, we propose to prioritise students for places in the following order:
- Siblings of children already at the school;
- The children of staff who have been recruited to teach subjects where there is a shortage of skilled staff;
- The children living closest to the school’s site.
Entry into Year 7 - September 2022
If your child is in Year 6 you will no doubt be very excited about their transfer to Secondary Education next year. We would be delighted if you were considering applying for them to have a place here at Harris Academy Sutton.
We would encourage all prospective parents to access the virtual tour and the video speech from of our Principal, Mr Fisher.
The Virtual Tour and Principal’s Speech can be viewed here.
