Last week during enrichment, walking club enjoyed the sunshine and nature in Clapham Common and had a pleasant afternoon together.


Mr Lepretre’s lexicon for this week!


An exciting House competition update. Here at Harris Clapham Sixth Form, we currently have House Morris in first place, Franklin in second and Kahlo and Mendes in joint third. With one more House competiton, there is still all to play for!


Last Friday, we had a moving Year 13 Assembly followed by a fun student led Soirée. It was a lovely way for the community to come together and celebrate Year 13’s journey with us.


It’s a two assembly week, so as well as linguistically interesting advice for year 12s, we have a timely sporting analogy for Year 13:


This afternoon’s Year 12 assembly at introduced me to a new word and has left me pondering its plural. A mumpsimus is an error determinedly continued despite correction, but is it two mumpsimi, mumpsimuses, mumpsimodes?


Exciting to see our assemblies quoted in the news (not a lot of sixth forms can claim that):


Today, our Student President Ruweida and one of our Vice Presidents Sarah went over to to deliver some words of wisdom to the Year students about how to prepare for Year 11 next year.#community


This week students from the Clapham Cultural Society organised an Eid celebration for our school community. This included a session on Eid Al-Fitr, quizzes and games, henna designing and a bake sale. More than £100 was raised for charity!

PRSHE, Assemblies and Tutorials

All of our work is focused on developing the Clapham Character that our students further develop as they join us. This includes a strong focus on developing leadership knowledge and skills, balanced with further learning on staying safe.

Personal, Relationships, Sex and Health Education (PRSHE)

As part of a student’s weekly timetable, they have two tutor sessions with their form tutor. During these sessions, tutors deliver PRSHE. Students learn in an age-appropriate way, how to keep themselves safe, physically, mentally and emotionally. Some of the content that students learn links to the ‘contextual’ risks that students face living in and around London. These include:

  • child criminal exploitation, including county lines
  • serious youth violence, including knife crime
  • child sexual exploitation, including for boys
  • protection from radicalisation, extremism and terrorism

Students hear from a variety of agencies, including the police, about staying safe. Our PRSHE programme recognises that students are 16 to 19 years old. Other content will include the world of finance, personal budgeting and careers/UCAS (please see the tab with more details on UCAS).

Our programme therefore focuses on building from what students would have learned in secondary school, extending their knowledge and developing a deeper understanding as they prepare for employment, independence and their highly successful lives ahead.

We have a clear and cohesive strategy to ensure that academy has a culture of openess and mutual respect, a place where everyone is free from sexual harassment and/or sexual violence.

Please see our PRSHE policy in Teaching and Learning.


Assemblies tend to take place weekly. There may be whole academy assemblies or faculty assemblies led by a senior leader. A full assemblies programme is created for the year. The assemblies complement the PRSHE curriculum so everything flows together. Assemblies are one of the times when guest speakers come in to speak to students. This could be the Lambeth nursing team for example. Please see our Assemblies and Collective Worship policy in Teaching and Learning.


The tutor will be the first port of call for a student. There will be roughly 20 students in a tutor group. Every tutor will get to know their tutees really well. Tutors as well as delivering PRSHE support students in celebrating the success and managing the challenges of sixth form studies. Tutors will also liaise with parents and carers during the academy year.
