11 July 2017Latest news from James Fisher, Principal Designate, Harris Academy SuttonLast Week, the council received planning permission for the amazing new building which will house Harris Academy Sutton from September 2019, within the exciting development of the London Cancer Hub.
Opening in 2018 in well-resourced temporary accommodation, Harris Academy Sutton will be an outstanding place to learn from day one. With places for 195 students in our first year, this is a chance to join us at the beginning – and for your child to benefit from the undivided attention of our teachers and a well-considered and easy transition between primary and secondary school.
Harris Academy Sutton will be run by the Harris Federation, a not-for-profit charity led and run by teachers, which has nearly thirty years’ experience of running successful primary and secondary schools in and around London. Due to the school’s unique location, Harris Academy Sutton will place a special emphasis on the teaching and learning of science in all its forms. In addition to all of the opportunities presented by our location, the Harris Federation employs a team of specialist science teachers who help our academies ensure students are taught science imaginatively and engagingly. The team has built links with London’s top universities and medical schools so that students have access to a huge variety of experiences and opportunities.
