We are looking to hire casual Exam Invigilators for various exam periods to help to supervise the conduct of students in examinations at Harris Academy Battersea. Hours of work will be as notified in advance by the Examinations Officer.
Harris Academy Battersea will be in its 8th academic year in 2021-2022 and has established itself as one of the highest performing schools in London, judged to be Outstanding by Ofsted in 2018. In 2017, it was awarded the Evening Standard School of the Year as well as being named one of the Sunday Times Top 20 Schools in the country. We are immensely proud of our students' achievements at Harris Academy Battersea, where their progress measures (1.08, 1.47, 1.22, 0.92, 1.39* and 1.36* P8) defy expectations and set out what it is possible to achieve with hard work from all stakeholders. This is achieved through high expectations for all stakeholders, a high-quality curriculum, brilliant teaching with each teacher wanting to get better every day and, most importantly, an embedded culture that drives every decision in the school. This strong culture wraps around the three key characteristics of the most successful schools: high aspiration, high motivation and strong social norms.

Harris Academy Battersea is modern and innovative, but with old-fashioned values. Its aim is to shape the lives of students by providing them with the best possible academic outcomes from outstanding courses and – crucially – the experiences and guidance that will help them become resilient, resourceful, reflective and respectful, emotionally intelligent global citizens.
Harris Academy Battersea opened in September 2014 to replace a school that was in special measures. After only two years, it has achieved a Progress 8 score of +1.14 in the Summer 2016 examination series. Serving an intake of 80 per cent pupil premium, it is currently ranked as the 4th best school in the country and as the top performing school in London.
Our motto is ‘Head, Heart and Heroism’ because these are the qualities we develop in our students. In a rapidly changing world, curiosity, endeavour and the acquisition of high level skills and knowledge will stand the test of time.
Head means we will set challenging targets and raise aspirations so that all students achieve success. We want to see an outstanding proportion of students going to high level apprenticeships, good careers and universities including those from the Russell Group.
Heart means we will build global citizens and fine ambassadors for the local community. Our curriculum builds on what we call the four Rs: Respect, Resilience, Resourcefulness and Reciprocity. These qualities will enable students to develop the emotional intelligence they need now and in the future.
Heroism means students and staff are encouraged to have the courage and integrity to take the right action for the right situation, even when no-one is watching. We are developing a community built on respect, where everyone goes the extra mile. Whatever a student’s starting point with their education, they will make progress and succeed by stretching and challenging themselves.
