Welcome from the Principal

Our school provides the most exciting and promising future for your child. 

All our students take up the opportunity to lead fulfilled lives with direction and purpose. Our teachers lead with professionalism and scholarship. They are experts in their field. All of us are part of a warm family of staff and governors who have the highest ambition and a deep hunger to learn.  

The students understand that they are under a ‘moral obligation’ to develop all their talents and to never waste a minute of their day. I believe that there is nothing without work and nothing without a creative and open-minded approach to learning. Our students are excited by challenge and all of us value knowledge about the reactivity of chemical elements and the poetry of Heaney and Shakespeare as much as we do creativity and the performing arts. 

Developing the very best teaching alongside a culture of high expectations is essential for all our students.

We offer a dynamic and personalised curriculum, delivered through an ethos of mathematics and enterprise. 

Ours is a cross-site Academy for girls and boys aged 11–19. We have a thriving Sixth Form. The two excellent sites, one in South Norwood and one in Upper Norwood have one ethos. Both sites provide students with the very best in technology and resources that inspire every student.

On the very first day our students learn that:

“I am here to learn”

“I will have a positive attitude”

“I will make it happen” 

These key attitudes underpin a real sense of independent learning, exemplary behaviour and individual success. All our students learn to become leaders and all grow into young adults of courtesy and ambition. Students take up the excellent opportunities to gain confidence as they grow into balanced young adults. We want every single student to fulfil their aspirations and to go on to lead happy, thriving and successful adult lives. 

It is a honour to be the Executive Principal at Harris South Norwood and I very much look forward to welcoming you to the Academy.

Alex Williamson
Executive Principal
