In 1915, after losing a friend in Ypres, Canadian doctor, Lt. Col. John McCrae was inspired by the sight of poppies growing in battle-scarred fields to write a now famous poem called 'In Flanders Fields'. After WWI, the poppy was adopted as a symbol of Remembrance.— Harris Lowe Arts () November 11, 2023

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.

Central Office

















Uniform & Equipment

Tel 020 8544 5440 (Option 2). Open 12 - 4pm, Monday to Friday. .

Second-hand uniform is available from the Academy directly. We cannot guarantee all items will be available in every size but we will work with families to ensure we can share what we can.

Uniform and expectations

  • Arriving in full school uniform helps students feel equal and gets them ‘Ready to Learn’. Full school uniform should be worn to and from school. Our students are ambassadors for the Academy at all times.
  • The Academy expectations and uniform apply to all students within the Academy, when travelling to or from the Academy and whilst on trips and visits.
  • Sweatshirts/hoodies, caps and trainers are not permitted and will be confiscated.
  • Make up is not permitted. Jewellery including rings (with the exception of one pair of small gold or silver studs on each earlobe and a watch) are not permitted and must not be worn. If worn on school site, jewellery will be confiscated. Woolly hats are allowed in the winter months but should not be worn in the school building.
  • We do not allow any facial piercings or more than one piercing in each ear lobe. You will be asked to remove such piercings (even if they have just been done).
  • Students should wear short black socks.
  • No nail varnish or false nails are allowed and nails should be of a reasonable length.
  • Hair must be worn in an appropriate style and there should not be any markings cut into the hair, dyed hair or any extreme fashion which would create any undue interest in the student.
  • Only plain black leather school shoes are permitted. Uniform expectations also apply when students travel to and from school.
  • If you are considering buying a winter coat or waterproof jacket please note that this should be plain black or navy blue.
  • All students in years 7-10 are required to carry a blue plain backpack, which can either be bought from the uniform supplier or any high street retailer.

The Academy expectations and uniform apply to all students within the Academy, when travelling to or from the Academy and whilst on trips and visits.

  • the Academy’s PE kit
  • exercise books (as per the student’s timetable)
  • a filled water bottle

It is a student’s responsibility to ensure their planner and books remain presentable and are not defaced.

Mobile phones and iPods/headphones

We know that many young people have mobile phones, however they are easily lost or stolen which can cause upset and waste time. They can also cause a distraction. Therefore we will be enforcing the school rules which state that phones must be turned off at all times whilst on the school site and any mobile phone OR headphones seen at any time on site will be confiscated.

It is important to note that parents wishing to contact students in case of emergency can use the school telephone line and a message will be relayed to the student. It is also important to note that although we will endeavour to keep all students’ belongings safe, no responsibility can be taken for students’ mobile phones whilst on the school site.
