Harris Academies
All Academies in our Federation aim to transform the lives of the students they serve by bringing about rapid improvement in examination results, personal development and aspiration.

Initial Teacher Education

The Academy is proud to work with a number of Initial Teacher Education providers including Harris School Direct (SD) and TeachFirst (TF), a variety of universities through undergraduate and PGCE qualifications, along with teachers on the Overseas Teacher Training Programme (OTTP). In addition to the comprehensive and rigorous training and professional development programme provided by these organisations we also provide a wide range of weekly CPD sessions in addition to our weekly CPD programme. The sessions will take place each Tuesday 16.40-1700 in room 005.
