The school first opened its doors in 1999, and by 2003, it had established itself as one of Merton’s top schools. This was not always the case, however. The school was formerly known as Garth High School, but it was a failing institution that changed its name to Watermeads in 1995 before closing in August 1999. It was built on the site of the Catherine Gladstone Convalescent Home. Bishopsford announced their best-ever GCSE results in summer 2008, with 57 percent of students earning 5 A*-C grades.  It was revealed in early February 2012 that the school will be renamed Harris Academy Morden in September 2013 after failing the most recent OFSTED inspection.
The Harris Academy first opened its doors in September of 2013.

A high-quality art and design education is provided in Art at Harris Academy Morden to engage, encourage, and challenge pupils, providing them with the knowledge and skills to experiment, innovate, and develop their own works of art, craft, and design. Pupils at Harris Academy Morden grow in their ability to think critically and gain a more comprehensive understanding of art and design as they move through the art program. They also expand their understanding of how art and design represent and form our heritage, as well as contribute to our nation’s culture, innovation, and prosperity.
Students at Harris Academy Morden are taught to improve their imagination and ideas while also improving their execution skills. They also gain a critical understanding of artists, architects, and designers, sharing reasoned opinions that can be applied to their own work. For example, in year 8, students create work focused on the ‘Day of the Dead,’ allowing for the creation of formal elements influenced by the festival’s cultural context.
