    Pros

    Very supportive management Opportunities to develop and progress in the organisation Great fun

    Cons

    Very hard work and long hours (but they are fun) There is a lot of unjustified negative press to deal with when working for an academy and the LEA seem to moderate us EVERY year

    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Harris Academy full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Excellent facilities, very conscientious and friendly staff, great opportunities to develop, student behaviour is managed excellently and the students are full of character!

    Cons

    The leadership are largely formed of PE staff so often cannot relate to the demands of other more academic subjects and often lack business skills and acumen. The highest expectations are set for both staff and students, as they should be, however these are so unrealistic that staff morale is low and turnover is huge. Too much pressure is placed on middle leadership and teaching staff and staff are not listened too.
