Our much anticipated first ever Enrichment Fair proved hugely successful with staff and students, who were given the opportunity to explore the varied and exciting extra curricular activities that HABE has to offer.


We warmly welcome all HABE students to attend our first Enrichment Fair on Friday 19th January at 1.30pm to 2.00pm in the Sports Hall for a chance to find out about the wide and varied enrichment experiences on offer to our students.


Welcome to all our students returning today and wishing all our students, parent/carers a very peaceful and Happy New Year.


Harris Academy Beckenham are delighted to announce that they are the first school in the country to be awarded the SENDIA accreditation due to the outstanding provision we offer all of our students with special educational needs!

Despite Baltic conditions, students carried out a number of data collecting exercises during their Geography Fieldtrip last week. Positive reinforcement and clear guidance enabled students to confidently compare two local sites of urban deprivation in detail.


Sharing hope this Christmas. Students and staff have been generously donating to create charity boxes - now ready to be collected and distributed.


Students have been studying issues surrounding the current housing crisis in their Literacy Intervention lessons. The Economist Magazine has set up an online hub for students across the country to discuss topical issues each half term. Our students won awards for their comments.
