Harris Academies
All Academies in our Federation aim to transform the lives of the students they serve by bringing about rapid improvement in examination results, personal development and aspiration.

The Governing Body

We have a joint governing body with Harris Boys' Academy East Dulwich. The Governing Body is responsible, with the Principal, for setting and monitoring the educational direction of the academy and the targets to be achieved over time.

Our governors and the areas for which they have particular responsibility (in brackets) are listed below. All governors can be contacted via Peter Mason, Resources Manager and Clerk to the Governors

The Academy is a member of the Harris Federation. Ultimate responsibility for the Academy rests with the Board of Trustees of the Federation (find out more about the Federation governance and scheme of delegation), but much of the work of the Board is delegated to the Local Governing Body (the Governors of the Academy). Some Governors are appointed by the Federation whilst others are elected by parents or guardians of students at the Academy or by staff. The details of the Governors at Harris Girls Academy East Dulwich are shown below.
