You should only send your child to school on Monday if you have to, because your work is critical to our COVID-19 response. If you are able to keep your child at home, you should. https://t.co/n1B1gngVWr

Student Leadership

At Harris Garrard Academy, all students from the primary, secondary and Sixth Form phases can exercise their democratic rights and elect a student leadership team

Through our student leadership team, every student will have a voice in the running of the academy, and a chance to bring about positive change. The aim of the team is to bring about developments in teaching and learning, behaviour and students’ experiences so that students are happy and can thrive in our community.

Each secondary tutor group and primary class holds a mini election to choose their class representative. The positions of Head Girl, Head Boy and Hub Captains are open to our sixth formers, who put themselves forward as candidates and must take part in hustings, before an election being held across the whole school. The candidates for Head Girl and Head Boy must also undergo an interview with the Head of Academy.

Download our latest Hub Council minutes.


A word from the Head Girl and Head Boy

We both would like to warmly welcome you, parents, students, and the entire community of Harris Garrard Academy.

We believe that our school has truly emphasised the importance of community and learning. Throughout our time in the academy, especially while part of the sixth form, we can confidently state that the academy is no less than perfect in terms of learning and achievements. The Academy’s only and ultimate goal is to develop a safe and beneficial environment for the students because “background does not determine excellence”.

Every day is a new beginning in Harris Garrard; we believe that every student in the academy is exceptional. The school provides the tools and assets for the students to achieve above our potential. In addition, the school understands and values the student’s wellbeing and mental health; the school has responded to these concerns by providing several extra-curricular activities and sports clubs. The student leadership team strives to allow every student to have a voice in the running of the academy, and a chance to bring about positive changes.

Lastly, we would like to emphasise the academy’s most important mantra that guides and support students on the day to day basis: “Learning Changes Lives”
