Student Leadership

A message from our Student Leadership team, 2022-2023

We are very proud to announce ourselves as the Harris Academy Rainham student leadership team of 2022-2023.

We each have our own individual roles, responsibilities and passions within the team, and as a group we will embody and promote the academy’s ethics and school values. We all have a collective responsibility of representing the academy to its peak potential.

Our leadership also means that we will not just be representatives of the school, but also the voice of our all-inclusive students. Creating an advantageous and cordial environment out of Harris Academy Rainham is one of our main goals, as is enabling our students to flourish in their academic lives.



Ensuring that all pupils adapt to our morals and values of Belonging, Believing and Becoming (BBB) is also a main target for us as the school’s leadership body. Implementing this into students from younger years makes a harmonious community and allows teachers and pupils to work in accord.

We are looking forward to working hard and sitting our GCSE examinations (and being proud of the outcomes!). Although we do face on-going preparations for our GCSEs, we feel passionate about the below issues and plan to raise awareness, makes changes and move forward with the following:

  • Making HAR an anti racist school and educating all about unconscious bias
  • Promoting diversity and celebrating culture
  • Celebrating success, especially for those students who always do the right thing
  • Providing mentoring to students
  • Fundraising for charities

We look forward to promoting Harris Excellence and representing you throughout the year!

What our student leaders say...

We asked students why they applied to be on the student leadership team.

“I have always loved the sense of community and fellowship this school has provided me with since Year 7 and I feel as though it is now my time to repay the favor. I believe that I can provide what this school needs to help all students to feel like they belong just as this school has done for me. I want to encourage students to push and believe in themselves to become whatever they wish just as the school motto motivates us to do”- Indiana

“Our school’s motto is Belong, Believe, Become.  The verb ‘Belong’ means to be a member of a particular group or organization.  As a member of an ethnic minority, I not only want to be inclusive of members from my own ethnic group, but I want to make everyone feel included no matter what their race, religion or sexuality”- Gabriella

“Being a student at Harris Academy Rainham has allowed me to broaden my horizons. It has given me a safe and controlled environment to learn more about my interests, my good qualities, and even qualities I must work on to become a better person. I wish to be part of this team to continue to provide this opportunity to others, allowing them to find their identity through the school to enable their progression in the future”- Eudora

“Students can and should be proud of their accomplishments, and their achievement should then be embraced by others”- Basit

“Having the confidence to open to your peers might be a difficult thing but I want to make expressing your culture, sexuality, gender, race or beliefs a norm in the school because at Harris Academy Rainham we want people to belong and be unified to build an inclusive ethos in our school”- Basit

“I joined the academy in Year 10. Since being here, the HAR community (both staff and students) have made me feel so welcome and for the first time I feel that I really do belong to a school to cares about me.  Regardless of my previous educational background, HAR will always be my school and it has shown me to believe in myself”- Tobee

“Looking at my generation and every child my age, we all have different futures. Where some of us look at our future, some of simply don’t and some of us choose not to see it. I want to help all my peers see their futures. For we all have a future, we need to see it to know it.  I want to help guide my peers to walk the right pathway to excel through and through”- Blossom

“I would really like this opportunity to give back something to the school as over the four years I’ve been at Harris I haven’t really had the chance to show my appreciation for all the amazing things that Harris has offered me such as never giving up on me and always having my best interest at heart.  I want to make the best choices for the schools during my last year and I want to leave a legacy embedded at Harris”-  Juliet
