Citizenship is taught through PSHE and assemblies and opportunities to contribute to the wider life of the academy.


Subjects covered in Key Stage 3:


  • Maths
  • English
  • Science
  • History
  • Geography
  • Religious Studies
  • DT
  • Art
  • Music
  • Drama
  • Sport and Fitness

Subjects studied in the Sixth Form

A huge range of subjects is delivered at KS5 and our students have access to this range both on site and by studying at other Harris academies for part of their timetable. The subjects that are delivered at Harris Girls’ Academy East Dulwich and Harris Boys’ Academy East Dulwich are:

A level courses

  • Art
  • Biology
  • Business
  • Chemistry
  • Computer Science
  • Economics
  • English Literature
  • Geography
  • History
  • Photography
  • Physics
  • Psychology
  • Sociology
  • Spanish
  • Extended project qualification

Vocational Level 3 courses

  • Business
  • Criminology
  • Health and Social Care
  • ICT
  • Sports Studies

Other subjects can be accessed via the Harris Federation Sixth Form.

Our study programmes at Post 16 meet all of the national requirements for Post 16. If any pupils have not attained grades 4 in either Maths or English, they are required to study these subjects in Post 16 and are re-entered for the GCSE retakes in November in order to secure grade 4s or above in these core subjects. It’s our responsibility to support all pupils to achieve this basic benchmark.

All pupils study the equivalent of at least three level 3 qualifications (over 600 hours per academic year) and benefit from an excellent programme of work experience, careers, advice and guidance and personal development in order to prepare them for life beyond sixth form.
