Sixth form students who attend Harris Academy Merton are expected to be good role models for our pupils in key stages 3 and 4.
As senior students their standard of dress and conduct around the Academy will set a good example of the standards younger students should aspire to.
Needless to say the application to study will be matched by a willingness to participate in enrichment and support activities that are available in our local and extended community. Our Sixth Formers currently help with sport and train as leaders to coach competitions and courses for Academy students and local primary school children.
Sixth form students play a big role in our Student Voice and participate in debates considering Academy developments and proposals. They contribute to peer counselling and mentoring schemes that are offered to the junior students in the Academy. With Sport and Enterprise as our specialisms the resources are first class and the extensive grounds that surround us are kept to a high standard.
During our last Ofsted inspection the whole Academy, including the Sixth form, was graded as outstanding. Inspectors commented on the drive and ambition of all Sixth form students and how being part of the Federation has enabled the students the opportunity to have the breadth of education no one site alone could offer.
With a dedicated study base and common room Harris Academy Merton has a calm and purposeful ethos that extends throughout our secure and spacious site.
