Harris Academy Bermondsey is a secondary school located inside the London Borough of Southwark district of Bermondsey. The school takes in girls between the ages of 11 and 16 and in 2006 the school joined a federation of schools in South London called the Harris Federation named after the Lord Harris of Peckham who is sponsoring them. Prior to its transformation into an academy, the school was known as Aylwin Girls' School. The school also takes part in fundraising for annual trips to Sri Lanka in association with the Yala Fund, a charity which helps build and improve schools in towns in Sri Lanka.


The academy is located on the A2206, on Southwark Park Road. The nearest train station is South Bermondsey, which is on the South London Line and connects to Peckham and Crystal Palace, with a new station, Surrey Canal Road, possible on the proposed London Overground Orbirail connecting to Clapham Junction. The nearest tube station is on Jamaica Road called Bermondsey tube station, which is on the Jubilee Line.


The uniform changed in 2006 along with the name. Pupils were asked to decide what colours they wanted to wear on their uniforms and it was decided, through a vote, that pink was the most suitable colour. So the uniform since 2006 has changed to a navy skirt or trousers, navy suit jacket, long or short-sleeved pink open-neck Academy blouse, dark navy or black shoes, plain white, black or blue socks, plain dark tights and academy dark-coloured coat. This is now for the whole school, but the school bag is optional for 7, 8 and 9.
