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.

Enrichment

In the Sixth Form there will be opportunities to contribute to the wider life of the school. As ambassadors you will be encouraged to take part in a choice of extra-curricular opportunities.

For Year 12 involvement in these activities is compulsory through the CAS scheme. Modelled on the International Bacchalaurate's "Creativity, Action, Service" this programme requires students to complete a minimum of 30 hours "Community, Action, Service" around the Academy. This might Involve joining the Sixth Form Reading Group or Debating Society. CAS hours could also be accumulated through tutoring younger students.

Students in Years 12 and 13 are encouraged to attend 3 university Open Days over the 2 years and a range of guest speakers are invited in to talk about careers in professions such as Law, Medicine and Education.

Sport

We offer a wide range of opportunities to take part in both competitive and social sports. Teams compete in Hockey, Rugby, Football and other team sports, while Badminton offers a more relaxing form of exercise.

The gym is open to Sixth Form students before and after school.

Expressive Arts

Expressive Arts play a very important role in the school.

There will be many opportunities to contribute to the many events and school musicals staged every year. If you prefer to work behind the scenes or in sound and lighting, you can take this on as a responsibility or work within our Expressive Arts and Music clubs.

Charity

Harris Academy Chafford Hundred is proud to represent the community and is committed to contributing to local, national and international charities. This will be through Year group campaigns or assisting staff via charity-themed days.
