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!

A fabulous turn-out again last night for our second open evening. Lovely to see and speak to so many prospective parents and students. Thank you also to students from our previous school for coming along to share their experiences from a student's point of view.


The perfect blue-sky day for an update on how our building is progressing!


If you did not manage to get in to see us last week, please do join us for our next open event this evening!


Three jam- packed halls full of visitors tonight. So lovely to see you all. If you did not manage to join us this evening, our next open evening is on 2 October.

Consultation Outcome

Following on from our public consultation, which ran from 03/06/2019 to 08/07/2019, we are delighted that our proposed admissions policy has been approved by the government’s Department for Education.  

We held three events which were attended by nearly 50 people, most of whom were prospective parents. We were very pleased to present our plans for the new academy and to answer questions that were raised.

Separately, we received 15 responses to our consultation survey and we have considered all the views expressed. 9 respondents expressed a preference for Glenbrook Primary School not to have ‘feeder status’ and for the main oversubscription criteria to be distance from home to academy. However, parents of children at Glenbrook do not have to choose a place at Harris Academy Clapham. Also with the academy being built on Glenbrook’s site, our view is that the two schools should work closely together and that the admissions criteria are fair.

Thank you to all parents and members of the wider community who attended our consultation events or filled in our consultation form.

You can view our final admissions policy from our website (admissions policy and process). We look forward to meeting more prospective parents at our open events which are taking place at Glenbrook Primary School whilst our new building is being constructed:

From 6pm-7pm, and again from 7pm-8pm on the following evenings:

Thursday 26th September 2019
