A World Class School

Harris Academy Beckenham has been awarded the World Class Schools Quality Mark (WCSQM) having successfully completed the accreditation process in 2019. We are now officially a world class school.  

WCSQM awards a quality mark to non-selective state schools that offer the best education to young people in the UK. Unlike other national assessment bodies, it assesses the students and not the school, using a framework of skills and competencies young people need to flourish in an emerging global economy.

To achieve the status of World Class, students have to demonstrate that they are truly World Class through their successful participation in the rigorous assessment process.

WCSClassroom of the future

The final stage of the assessment saw students from 25 applicant schools visit UTC Reading, a University Technical College, where they had to work in teams to design a ‘Classroom for the future’. It had to be 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. On the day, students met 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.

Our students were successful and we are delighted and proud of them for achieving this prestigious honour for our school.
