Welcome from the Principal
An extremely warm welcome - from Principal Mr. Tom Street - to the Harris Academy Falconwood website. I hope that it provides you with the information that you need, and gives you a sense of what our Academy is all about. We pride ourselves in creating a supportive community where our students are offered the best educational experience in order to develop confidence, self-belief and self-drive.
In September 2008 we joined the Harris Federation, a not-for-profit charity with 25 years of experience in education. In joining the Harris Federation, we have become part of a family of more than forty happy and highly successful primary, secondary and sixth form providers in schools across London. Being part of such a successful Federation allows our teachers and leaders to continue to develop their practice.
“We have wonderful staff, very supportive parents, a very committed Governing Body and most of all we have great students who love to learn”
I am very privileged to be the Principal at Harris Academy Falconwood. I believe that education offers young people a platform for success, and acts as a tool to broaden their horizons, providing them with opportunities that they may not have considered. Education is equally so much more than exam results, the Academy allows students to feel safe, valued and happy, all contributing to positive attitudes and positive learning. We inspire and encourage all of our students and support them continuously through their journey into young adults. Everything we do is based around our three core values which support our students to become happy, educated young people with the drive and desire to succeed. Our core values of Serve, Support, Success contribute to our students’ success and their ability to grow and develop into kind and thoughtful young people.
If you would like to visit the Academy or have any questions or would like to know a little bit more about what we do, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Mr Tom Street
