We are currently looking to appoint a Design Technology and Art Technician to provide technical support to the relevant departments of the academy in order to support the teaching of Design Technology.

About Us

Harris Boys' Academy East Dulwich opened in September 2009 and is part of the Outstanding Harris Federation. Our vision is clear: nothing is impossible and everything is possible, irrespective of personal characteristics or background. Every problem has a solution. We believe we are more robust, resilient and determined as a team than as a group of individuals. We support, challenge and hold each other to account at all levels within the academy to ensure that our students achieve their potential, are motivated, engaged and fully prepared for life beyond our academy. The academy's specialisms are Enterprise and Sport with a 'can-do' ethos of always improving upon your personal best. The Academy will accommodate 750 boys when full. Harris Boys' benefits from a state-of-the-art purpose-built building with the very latest facilities and equipment. The Academy offers a co-educational Post 16 with the nearby Harris Girls' Academy, together comprising capacity for 400 Sixth Formers. Harris Boys' was judged to be an outstanding school by Ofsted in December 2011.

Academy Ethos

We encourage our students to be critical thinkers and promote these skills throughout the curriculum. A student at Harris Boys' Academy will learn how to engage critically with foreign affairs, religion and society, issues of citizenship and the media, so they acquire the skills, and recognise the value of, thinking for yourself and thinking in a well-reasoned manner.

"We are very lucky to have an amazing staff team who work together, and what you get from this is an inertia of this body of professionals who are striving to be the very best they can be. It is down to these two points - staff who are on board, who want to change futures and want to be better at what they do, and students who buy into this idea of 'I'm at school because I can make myself a better person and I can flourish in life.' When you have these two points together, which is what we have worked very hard to obtain, then you can make wonderful things happen. And that's shown through our outcomes and is also shown through if you've ever had a chance to speak to the boys and the parents of this school community." Peter Groves, Principal
