Welcome From The Principal
Welcome to our new sixth form academy. Harris Rainham Sixth Form will open its doors in September 2023 with 200 places for Year 12. We will have a capacity of 400 students, 200 in Year 12 and 200 in Year 13.
Our state-of-the-art building will be constructed on the same site as Harris Academy Rainham. We will provide a Level 3 curriculum offer, including A level and vocational courses.
We will work closely with Harris Academy Rainham, with whom we share a site. The two academies will be separate but will share staff, expertise and a common ethos.
I have been Principal at Harris Academy Rainham since September 2016 and it has been a great privilege to serve the community and our wonderful students. We are delighted to finally be in a position to share our plans for the new Harris Rainham Sixth Form.
For too long Rainham students have had to travel to access high quality Post 16 education. This will no longer be the case. The students of Rainham will now have an ambitious and highly aspirational sixth form that will enable our young people to access the best universities, apprenticeships and employment opportunities that exist.
We will ensure that Harris Rainham Sixth Form will be a fantastic new place of learning. We have the support and backing of the Harris Federation, which has a track record in London education that is second to none. Three-quarters of our secondary academies are rated ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted, compared to just a fifth of schools nationally. We will also work closely with the outstanding Harris Chafford Hundred Sixth Form.
We are looking forward to sharing our plans for the Sixth Form and hearing your thoughts.
Mr Gareth Stananought
