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.

Our credentials

Our credentials

The Harris Academy Chafford Hundred has consistently over the last five years achieved 5 A*-C including Maths and English results between 84% and 94% and value added ranging from 1049 to 1072. In the past few years the Academy has won numerous awards for its rapid improvement. Its most recent Ofsted inspection (November 2011) saw the Academy achieve 30 out of 31 outstanding judgements, including 'outstanding' for teaching and learning.

In the last year HACH has been mentioned in Parliament and was named as one of the top 100 non selective secondary schools nationally for pupil progress. In 2015 the Academy won runners up in the National Pupil Premium Awards.

Visit our Dashboard, see our 2015 GCSE results or review our OFSTED report by visiting the relevant links on our 'About Us' page.

HACH has real strength in all areas of teaching and learning, use of data, curriculum, assessment for learning and staff development and a well-developed and effective pupil centred ethos.

The Academy has a low staff turnover and attracted impressive comments from OFSTED about the care, guidance and engagement of its pupils; success is not achieved by replacing staff or relying on equivalents. Our intake is generally around or just below national average in terms of prior attainment. Our academy status followed our success.

But it wasn’t always that way

After poor results (16% A*CEM) and a ‘notice to improve,’ in 2006, the Academy (then Chafford Hundred Campus) was statistically the most improved secondary school in England over the period 2007 to 2010.  It was shortlisted for TES awards in this category in both 2010 and 2011. In June 2009 and June 2010 it was listed in the top 6 secondary schools in the country in the TES awards; achievements which reflect its dramatic and sustained improvement. The Academy was also awarded the SSAT Outstanding Progress Award, Outstanding Improvement Award and Outstanding Achievement Award in 2011; one of only 3 schools in the country to be awarded all three.

Harris Academy Chafford Hundred is in the top 1% of secondary schools for achievement and an outstanding school in every category including ‘teaching and learning.’(Ofsted 2011)
