“Developing our young people both academically and personally is at the heart of everything we do at Harris Academy Battersea.”
Our track record speaks for itself.
Having opened its’ doors as a Harris Academy Battersea in 2014, this secondary and sixth form serves the local school community around Battersea and Wandsworth. With over a 1000 students on roll, its’ dedicated team of staff work together to maintain an Outstanding academy for these students and provide a safe, engaging learning environment. In 2017, it was awarded the Evening Standard School of the Year as well as being named one of the Sunday Times Top 20 Schools in the country. In 2016-17, it was ranked 4th highest school in England for pupil progress and the top non-selective school nationally and achieved a provisional figure of +1.40 for Progress 8 in 2018-19: nearly three times higher than the +0.5 threshold set by OfSTED for 'Outstanding'.
