A welcome from Carrie Senior, Principal

Principal HGAEDOur vision is to develop students with character, courage and conscience, who become academically and personally successful and lead in their community and beyond.

Welcome to Harris Girls’ Academy East Dulwich. I’m extremely proud of our warm, welcoming community and its strong values, which are demonstrated by staff and students alike. We enjoy a beautiful site overlooking Peckham Rye and a superb range of facilities.

Harris Girls’ Academy East Dulwich is a richly diverse school, providing inspiration, challenge and vibrancy, with a strong culture of care and support. We believe firmly that learning should be challenging and that all students have the right to a curriculum that stretches and inspires them.

We also firmly believe that the best learning comes when pupils feel safe to make mistakes, enjoy respectful and warm relationships with staff and feel supported. Our academy thus combines a broad, challenging and rich curriculum with outstanding pastoral care and support. We’re incredibly proud that our pupils leave the academy with outstanding exam results (in the top 10% of the country) but also with a strong sense of justice, community and care that means that they make a real contribution to the world beyond school.

The best learning comes when pupils feel safe to make mistakes

As part of the Harris Federation, we have strong values which help to define our culture and how we do things. Our commitment to academic excellence, our determination to live by our values and to uphold the highest standards of behaviour mean that this is a caring, supportive yet rigorous environment where all can thrive.

HAGED023


Our approach

Our approach to our curriculum means that pupils explore a broad range of subjects and specialisms, developing expert skills in each subject area and understanding the unique perspective on the world that each subject can bring.

We ensure that our curriculum is enlivened by real life examples, trips, visits and extra-curricular activities. We expect everyone to seek out and enjoy this rich range of wider opportunities.

We offer a wide range of opportunities for our students to develop personally as well as academically, ranging from chances to participate in the Debate Mate and Jack Petchey Speak Up Speak Out competitions, to the Duke of Edinburgh Award, and almost everything in between!

Our students can be seen exhibiting their art in the Peckham Festival, offering support to one another as subject specialist ambassadors, and campaigning against human rights abuses in our annual Write for Rights campaign. We are multiple time winners of the Harris Federation sports day, and we share our poetry and art on Instagram. 


Caring, resilient and thoughtful

Ultimately, we want our students to become successful adults, caring, resilient and thoughtful whose ambitions are high, who believe in the importance of learning and knowledge and who are equipped to lead their generation.

For adolescent girls, we recognise that we have to help them learn to challenge misogyny and sexism and empower our students to really believe that they can achieve their ambitions. We make sure that each of our pupils leaves the academy with genuine choices available to them; to undertake degree level study, travel, begin an apprenticeship or seek full time employment. Almost all of our pupils go to university - 25% last year to Russell Group universities.

With excellent results and a full understanding of how to live your life well - not just for your gain but for others - we strongly believe that our pupils are prepared for adulthood and to give back to their community. We very much welcome your partnership in making this academy and our students the pride of our local community.
