Delighted to share our introduction to the academy ahead of our virtual open evening this evening:


Our students are loving all their enrichment opportunities! Today alone there was keyboard club, table tennis, football, debating and cookery club! Bake-off worthy apple crumbles!

New school opens doors in Clapham


Day 3 and enrichment is up and running!


Two fabulous days of induction and work on The Clapham Commitment! Well done to staff and students alike!


Fabulous first day with our students today! So great to see them all!


Closer and closer and closer


Thank you, Team Clapham, for an incredible two days of staff training in the virtual world! We cannot wait to see you and our students in September!


Thank you for all your hard work in ensuring our school will be ready for us!


Definitely opening in September


Fantastically quick response from our parents to our information requests. Thank you! Thoroughly enjoying reading our student responses too. Keep them coming in!


Another week of ‘firsts’: our first ever National offer Day, first official newsletter to our prospective parents and another site visit, which although not a ‘first’ was certainly the first time we saw skilled professionals on stilts. So impressive!


First official site visit today! This is when you realise that a staircase not only leads to a phenomenal view. It is also truly symbolic of a vision coming together.


All plans on track to welcome our students in September! Our building continues to take shape (thank you ), our senior leaders have been appointed and our next round of recruitment is well underway.


Here is our December update. Great to see such progress!


Look forward to our students creating their own version of this next year as we show care for our community.


Delighted to attend the assembly at Hitherfield Primary School this morning to award Daisy her prize for winning our Christmas card design competition! Such talent and creativity. What a way to start our Christmas card tradition. Well done, Daisy!


We have a roof and some walls already! Exciting!

Welcome to the curriculum information for Harris Clapham Sixth Form 

Harris Clapham offers a wonderful and unique opportunity to students in Lambeth and beyond to come and get a brilliant all-round education. 

The academy will offer a Level 3 curriculum package. This will focus on A- level and vocational courses. Students will also benefit from a first-class enrichment and personal social/health curriculum. We will particularly focus on developing students’ leadership skills, including in their local community. Please click on the leadership tab to find out more. 

Our A levels will include the ‘facilitating’ subjects that are the most valued by the best universities. Our state-of-the-art facilities will enable every subject to be taught above and beyond the exam board specification. We will offer separate sciences, mathematics and technological subjects. Other subjects will include Government and Politics, Drama and Computing. 

Our vocational courses will enable students to study the equivalent of one, two or three A-levels. These courses will fully integrate the world of work into their delivery. Our resources include media, computing and art suites. Students will be able use the latest technologies that are used in industry during their studies. 

We have prepared a summary of each subject (please click on each subject within the subject tab). The vocational courses include a variety of optional units - final decisions on these will be made by teachers once they are in post. The subject pages give a flavour, for example of the mandatory units that must be studied alongside the optional units.  

From day one, students are preparing for the step up to university education and/or their chosen apprenticeship/work routes. They will work towards challenging academic goals; they will develop the study skills of independent, adult learners; they will be supported in preparing their applications, personal statements and interviews so they are ready to take on the competition! 

In addition to their A level and/or vocational courses, there are lessons that allow students to learn completely different things, often outside the box. These are called “Cultural Perspectives”. Students will choose a different perspective each term. There will also be a wide range of enrichment, work experiences and sporting opportunities to ensure a holistic education package is on offer.  

We hope you are able to find out more about what life at Harris Clapham Sixth Form will be like through our website. Enjoy!
