Happy Vaisakhi to all celebrating. Vaisakhi not only symbolises the harvest festival but also the birth of the Khalsa Panth. It marks a pivotal moment in Sikh history when Guru Gobind Singh Ji founded the Khalsa, instilling principles of courage, equality, and selfless service.


Eid Mubarak to all of our community who are celebrating.

Our Sixth Form has grown in numbers over the last few years because of the high quality teaching and learning we provide as well as the pastoral care and support given by our Sixth Form team.

Students at Harris Academy Ockendon are encouraged to enhance their academic qualifications through a wide variety of extra-curricular opportunities that are carefully chosen in order to enhance the applications that they make at the end of Year 13.
