School profile

Harris Academy South Norwood

If you are looking to get your first school experience somewhere with a great team spirit, and where staff go the extra mile to care for their students, then HASN Clocktower could be the place for you. We have clear and effective behaviour policies and systems, a visible and supportive leadership team, useful but not onerous CPD, and frequent opportunities for promotion. Our students behave well, and so they achieve well. This is a product of our excellent behaviour systems. We have 6 non teaching Heads of Year who support behaviour and welfare. Exemplary behaviour can only be achieved through a highly visible Senior Leadership team, and they are constantly touring the Academy. CPD is bespoke, first and foremost in the subject and grounded in tried and tested methods of effective teaching such as modelling, questioning, literacy, practice and consolidation.
We have been judged Outstanding by OFSTED 5 times since 2010. We deliver a broad and challenging curriculum to all our students. This is reflected in our consistently high student performance at GCSE, progression to post 16 study at our sixth form and that many of our students go on to attend some of the best universities in the country.
