Harris Academy Morden (formerly Bishopsford Art College) is a secondary school with academy status in London, England. The school is part of the Harris Federation of South London schools which were opened to allow schools in the same area to 'borrow' educational values.
The school opened in 1999, and by 2003 it was one of the top schools in Merton. However, this was not always the case. Previously, the school was named Garth High School, though it was a failing school and changed its name to Watermeads in 1995, before finally closing in August 1999. It is built on the land previously occupied by Catherine Gladstone Convalescent Home. In summer 2008, Bishopsford announced their best-ever GCSE results - 57% achieved 5 A*-C 5 GCSEs. In the early days of February 2012 it was announced that the school would be changed to Harris Academy Morden in September after failing their latest OFSTED visit.
