An introduction to life in Year 7
To help you better understand what life is like at Harris Academy Ockendon, some of our current year 7s have filmed themselves talking about their experiences in their first year at the academy.
They have talked about what they enjoyed most, helpful things, useful advice, and what makes Harris Academy Ockendon a great place to learn.
All the year 7 students that took part were excited to do these videos and are looking forward to welcoming you to the academy in the Autumn. Please click on the links below to find out what they had to say!
A welcome from Year 11
The Academy asked a group of Year 11's to reflect upon their time over the previous 5 years.
The students have talked about what advice they would give to a new year 7 student, how they found their journey through the year groups, what their future plans are, and who has inspired them most whilst at school and why.
They have responded without any structure or guidance on what to say, their answers are genuine and show a real appreciation for the academy and self-growth.
