Welcome to Harris Academy Chafford Hundred



Mrs H Stannard - Principal

A warm welcome to the Harris Academy Chafford Hundred website. I trust that the website will provide you with the information that you need and give you a flavour of academy life.


Harris Academy Chafford Hundred is an outstanding “School for the Future” for 11 – 19-year olds, where students excel, exceed and explore. The principle aim of the academy is to prepare our students for their future in an ever-developing society.

We offer all students, regardless of their starting point, the very best chance of academic success. We have high expectations, encourage them to aim high and support them with excellent teaching and academic guidance, as well as focused intervention. The academy has achieved outstanding academic results that place us amongst the best in the country.

Our curriculum model produces very successful students ready for the challenges of life after school, delivering a very rich and varied range of subjects (including Mandarin, Latin and Ancient History), school experiences and opportunities (including a wide range of clubs, societies and trips, the Duke of Edinburgh Award, a Football Academy, a Netball Academy and our own Combined Cadet Force). As part of the Harris Federation, our students also benefit from inter academy events, Federation-wide sports days and the Harris Experience (a unique programme to prepare our most able students for life at top universities).

In addition, the value we place on students’ personal wellbeing and development is evident to all. Our pastoral team work closely with students and families ensuring we look after the whole student and enabling them to truly thrive as individuals. Academic strength goes hand-in-hand with personal development and pastoral care to create a close and caring community. During their time with us we help students to develop the character traits of confidence, grit, kindness, responsibility and zest. These traits are at the centre of school life and are reflected in the awards we have received such as World Class Schools Quality Mark, Cultural Diversity Gold Award, Enhanced Healthy Schools Status and Investors in People Gold.

I am very privileged to be the Principal of Harris Academy Chafford Hundred. My vision is that regardless of background, all students leave us as independent learners and kind, critical and engaged citizens who are fully equipped, academically and personally, for the next stage of their education and beyond.

If you would like to visit the Academy or have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
