Harris Academy Ockendon
We are extremely proud to lead the newest academy to join the Harris Federation. We are an 11-18 academy with a thriving Sixth Form and state-of-the-art building. It is a school where we are as passionate about developing our staff as we are about developing our students.
Harris Academy Ockendon is a school that aims to become the most successful school in Essex, providing all our students with a first-class education and amazing life experiences. This reflects our personal outlook on life and on education. We only get one life and we should all use it to make a real difference in the world, to enjoy being the best version of ourselves and to be the best we can possibly be. We always tell our students and staff to ‘enjoy being the best you can be’. At Harris Academy Ockendon ‘being the best’ is neither a destination nor a moment in time. It is a journey towards a consistent pattern of behaviour and attitudes that result in constant progress and achievement.
Our role here is to help students and staff dream bigger than they ever thought possible, and to make that dream come true through our culture of ambition, drive and integrity which beats at the heart of our school.
