Academy Life

4 July 2017HABE Officially 'Outstanding' Ofsted 2017Harris Academy Beckenham Reaches ‘Outstanding’ in Latest Ofsted Report Harris Academy Beckenham has been rated ‘outstanding’ in every category in its latest Ofsted inspection. Our school was praised for the success of its teaching and the excellent conduct of students. Inspectors said: “Leaders at all levels in the school are aspirational for their pupils. They are determined that pupils will enjoy learning and achieve academic success.” “Teachers know their pupils well and plan challenging activities which meet the needs of all groups of pupils and enable them to make outstanding progress.” “Teachers are aspirational for their pupils and set high expectations for them. Pupils respond positively. They are determined to do their best and are confident about meeting ambitious targets set by their teachers.” “The school’s learning ethos of resourcefulness, reciprocity, resilience and reflectiveness has a strong impact on pupils’ personal development.” “Pupils’ behaviour is outstanding. Their conduct is exemplary and contributes to a mature learning environment.” Rebecca Hickey, Principal of Harris Academy Beckenham, said: “We are absolutely delighted to have received the top rating of ‘outstanding’. It’s a reflection of the tremendous effort made by staff and students in every aspect of academy life. I am particularly pleased that Ofsted recognised the maturity and respectfulness of our students and their exemplary conduct, as well as our innovative WORD (literacy) programme. “We are all very proud of this result. This success will only add to the excitement of moving into our brand new building in September. As we near the end of the academic year, it is wonderful to end on such a high note and I would like to thank everyone who has been involved in making Harris Academy Beckenham an ‘outstanding’ school.” Click here to read the full report.
18 October 2019World Class Schools Status ... 25 UK Schools Get Through to the Final Stage... On 15th October 2019, UTC Reading, the only Ofsted ‘outstanding’ UTC (University Technical College), in the country, renowned for its innovative approach to learning, and World Class accredited since 2017, hosted this year’s WCSQM Assessment Centre. It was the final assessment stage for the 2019 cohort of schools applying to achieve World Class Schools Quality Mark accreditation. The award’s uniqueness lies in the fact that the students are assessed with regard to whether they are World Class or not, rather than the school itself. The premise is that if the school is truly World Class, then its students should be able to demonstrate this in whatever context they find themselves. WCSQM has been accrediting Ofsted ‘outstanding’ secondary schools in the UK since 2014 using a framework of skills and competencies young people need to flourish in an emerging global economy.  2019 sees the biggest cohort of applicant schools at one time to date, with 19 secondary schools and 8 primary schools (all non-selective state schools), shortlisted for accreditation. This year students from 25 schools got through to the Assessment Centre, and were given the challenge of working in teams to design a ‘Classroom for the future’ for UTC Reading, a modern, innovative, ‘future proof’ and environmentally sustainable learning space. Working in teams of primary and secondary students combined, students were required to carry out pre-event planning, research and design work, laying the groundwork for the assessment day, during which they would be meeting with consultants to seek expert help before creating designs, brochures, films, and a 3D model of the space. At the end of the day each team presented their designs to a panel of industry experts, sourced by UTC Reading, who helped to assess whether students had the World Class skills and competencies to secure their school WCSQM accreditation. We are now anxiously waiting to hear whether our fabulous students have achieved these world class standards.  The results are to be annoucned on 11th November 2019. We are so very proud of our representative students ...
