Harris Academy Sutton now has a permanent home.

Whilst the academy opened in 2018, lessons were held in temporary accommodation as construction of the new £40 million building was underway.

Students moved into the new site at the start of the term and since then have been making the most of the facilities.

James Fisher, principal of Harris Academy Sutton, said: “Our students and staff were hugely excited to move into our new building and it has been a delight to watch them enjoying the new space and facilities.

"It really is a spectacular learning environment where our students will thrive academically and develop long-life interests and talents.

“I am also delighted that we are the country’s first Passivhaus standard secondary school and our whole school community is proud that we are leading the way when it comes to the environment.”

Harris Academy Sutton is also the first secondary school in the country to meet the Passivhaus energy performance standard for the design and construction of energy efficient buildings.
