School Day

Parents are asked not to use Harris Drive or the academy car park for either picking up or dropping off students unless this is after 4:00pm. It is important to observe the 10mph speed limit on Harris Drive and the 5mph speed limit on our site. As part of our travel plan, we are trying to keep all school exits clear of traffic to protect the large number of pedestrians arriving at/leaving our site. We would like your cooperation in minimising the number of cars near the Academy site.


Cycling to Harris Church of England Academy is an eco-friendly option. We have invested in additional bike racks. Storage for helmets is available and part of the town's cycle route runs adjacent to the school site.


Parents can drop off/collect students in Saunton Road and Mellish Road, to avoid congestion on Overslade Lane. Parents are not allowed on the school site during the school day, unless they have reported to reception. Lessons begin at 8:55am, but Reception is manned from 8:00am to 5:00pm, daily. With a 3:25pm finish time, the school operates a typical 32.5 hour working week.
