Midweek Spotlight: Aspiring leader opportunities at Harris Garrard Academy

Posted on: April 29th 2020

Step into your leadership role at Harris Garrard Academy! Harris Garrard Academy is looking to appoint middle and senior leaders to join their thriving academy environment.

Harris Garrard Academy is located in the wider South Thamesmead area, catering to a vastly vibrant 3-19 aged student community. Accessible by fantastic rail and bus transport links, the academy’s stunning working environment, is within a purpose-built school designed by Norman Foster and nominated for the Stirling Prize for architecture in 2004. With dedicated areas for science, art and more, teachers and students have access to fantastic equipment and resources to bring learning alive.

Dedicated to moving forward

Our vision is clear: nothing is impossible and everything is possible, irrespective of personal characteristics or background. Every problem has a solution. We believe we are more robust, resilient and determined as a team than as a group of individuals. We support, challenge and hold each other to account at all levels within the academy to ensure that our students achieve their potential, are motivated, engaged and fully prepared for life beyond our academy.

As one of Harris’s successful all-through academies, staff at all levels belong to a strong, cohesive team working with Executive Principal Chris Everett and the wider SLT team. Staff can expect to grow with us as we continue to innovate and evolve as an academy. With ample opportunity to build on CPD, your potential is limitless with us.

Are you ready? We are still recruiting!

In line with the Government’s announcement, our academy is closed until further notice. However, during this period it is our intention to continue with critical recruitment for key positions starting in September 2020.

In place of academy interviews, alternative options will be offered so that no one is at a disadvantage, and applicants should expect telephone or virtual interviews, with the possibility of onsite academy interviews only in special cases. We want to reassure applicants that effective measures have been implemented to ensure their health and wellbeing whilst on academy premises.
