Welcome to Our Virtual Open Day

Welcome to the Harris Garrard Academy, a thriving school which is in the top 20% in England and Wales for student progress. 

We created this virtual open day for 2020 in place of our usual open days, which we were unable to have this year because of Covid-19.

We are proud to be one of the best-performing schools in our area and stand firm in our belief that ‘Learning Changes Lives.’ This ethos underpins everything we do.

Thank you for considering Harris Garrard Academy for your son or daughter. I know you will have lots of questions so please do email info@harrisgarrard.org.uk if you would like to talk to someone individually and we'd be pleased to get in touch with you.

Steve West, Head of Academy
