Why work at Harris Academy Greenwich?
Our staff often refer to their departments and the wider staff as ‘a family’. They came up with 20 reasons why staff should work here...there were lots more, but we couldn’t fit them all on one page! Check them out and our ‘About Us’ video on the school website:
Forget what you’ve heard about big, bad Federations. This is a school that keeps staff morale high, that gives you a sense of purpose, a sense of autonomy, a sense of trust and continual support and challenge to achieve mastery. Come pay us a visit and see for yourself.
