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.

Curriculum Plan

There are a number of principles upon which our curriculum is built:

  • High challenge and high support: 

The curriculum is intended to provide both challenge, which is a precondition for learning to take place, and the opportunity to enable students to receive the necessary support they require.  To this extent we look for opportunities for students to Fast track in Mathematics where appropriate and for students in Year 9 to begin some GCSE subjects.  At the same time we provide small group tuition within the timetable in English and Mathematics where students need additional time to develop and consolidate their skills in these core subjects.

  • Individualised and personal to a student’s needs, skills and aspirations: 

We believe that a curriculum should fit the needs of its students; not the other way round.  To this end we have devised our curriculum and our options to be as flexible and responsive to student need as possible. Pupils try all Design Technology subjects and all Creative Arts subjects on a carousel basis and some may study Latin or Mandarin. Some pupils may choose to study at a higher level - native speakers of Spanish for example often study A level Spanish at a young age.

  • Academic rigour and expectation: 

We provide all students with a sound academic basis and expect all our students to be successful.  The Academy supports and encourages our students to meet and exceed the national expectation that a curriculum should provide for successful study of the core subjects, Humanities and Foreign languages while retaining the breadth provided by the Creative Arts and technical subjects.  We actively encourage our students to consider this balance carefully when making decisions about future study while bearing in mind their next steps into further education or careers.  

The curriculum at Harris Academy Chafford Hundred is constantly reviewed and evaluated and we would welcome any comments or feedback from all our stakeholders. To give comments or feed back or request further information please contact r.tannahill@harrischaffordhundred.org.uk.

Curriculum details can be found below

At Harris Academy Chafford Hundred we ensure all students follow a rigorous and challenging curriculum that is designed to prepare them for a fast changing and demanding world.  Our intention is that our students will follow a curriculum that enables them to excel, exceed what they thought possible and explore the world around them.

For details of each subject detailed below please see the subjects page.
