Year 6 Admissions
We are delighted you are considering Harris Academy Ockendon, as a Secondary School for your child.
Our aim is to support you in making what is a very important decision in your child's education. In service of this we have created a designated Admissions page which contains a virtual tour video, videos from current year 7 students to give you an idea of what life at HAOC is like from their perspective, as well as useful information about our admissions process; please click HERE.
Our current prospectus can be viewed HERE.

We take pride in developing our students into well-educated and well-rounded individuals, ready to take on the world once they leave this academy. We support them as they develop the skills, confidence and motivation they will need to thrive as adults, to ensure they understand their place in society, both locally and globally and seek to make a positive impact upon it.
Our motto and mission ‘Enjoy being the best you can be’ succinctly captures our sense of optimism, ambition for academic excellence and our determination to create an environment where students develop their interests and nurture their talents in all areas. Our ethos embraces feelings of trust, knowledge, reciprocity, and shared behavioural norms that create a quality of life for staff and students that will be both enjoyable and productive. Our connection with each other promotes friendships, creates special moments, experiences, and outstanding memories. Harris Academy Ockendon is a place where people return with great eagerness, into an atmosphere of acceptance and belonging.
Our academy values of Ambition, Discipline and Honesty are the hallmarks of all successful people. These values permeate all aspects of academy life.
