Assembly Presentations 2021-22

Welcome to the assembly page of our website, where you can download this year's assembly presentations.

Our school has five character traits at the heart of everything we do. These are:

  • Moral awareness and tolerance
  • Determined resilience
  • Emotional capacity and understanding
  • Aspirational work ethic
  • Fulfilment and enjoyment

Each week, a member of the Senior Leadership Team will deliver an assembly related to one of our key character traits. Click HERE to view our assembly and tutor programme for 2021-22. Additionally, you can find the presentation for each assembly below. These will be uploaded after they have been delivered.

At Harris Garrard Academy, we are committed to ensuring that our pupils leave the school as successful and caring citizens and our assemblies are one of the many ways which we teach our students about what it means to be successful and caring and, crucially, the various forms success and care take.
