Harris Academies
All Academies in our Federation aim to transform the lives of the students they serve by bringing about rapid improvement in examination results, personal development and aspiration.

Our commitment to student learning

We want students at Riverside to learn the behaviours, habits and skills which will serve them and their community best.

We will teach students about the value of hard work, practice and determination, about the importance of kindness and respect for others, of gratitude and compassion.

We will maintain an environment in our academy which ensures that students develop the highest quality behaviours, recognise the importance of time and place and manage their behaviours appropriately.

We will deliver lessons, routines and activities which expose students to some of the best of what has gone before; famous poems and literature, the most important inventions and the most remarkable of mankind's achievements.

We want our students to understand local and national history, to be able to present to others, to debate and to discuss with confidence, to be able to express themselves in writing and to know how to learn.

We want our students to inspire their community.

Students in year seven will learn two poems by heart which we believe encapsulate our ethos;

'If' by Rudyard Kipling

'Invictus' by William Ernest Henley
