The Harris Experience
The Harris Experience is a programme for students in year 9, 10 and 11 comprising of a wealth of high-end academic and cultural experiences. These experiences range from art auctioneering at Christie’s Auction House to a day of lectures at Cambridge University, visits to the Royal Opera House and Imperial College London for a day of Science and Engineering.
Within their own academies, our Harris Experience students are taught to think independently, to express themselves effectively and to embrace learning for its own sake as well as to start the process of understanding their individual academic pathways.
We hope that all Harris Experience students will enter a Harris sixth form, where they will automatically gain entry to the Harris Experience Advanced.
Harris Experience Advanced
Harris Experience Advanced is for students in years 12 and 13. This programme is a Russell Group application scheme, providing expert guidance and individually tailored academic opportunities for our most able sixth formers. The programme is aimed at students who have achieved outstanding grades at GCSE or who prove themselves to be making outstanding academic progress early in Year 12 and maintain this throughout their two years in sixth form. This programme has helped students at Harris to attend Russell Group universities at a rate of more than twice the national average.
