Welcome Message

Thank you for taking your time to find out the latest news and events at Harris Academy Beckenham.

We are now in our 8th year of conversion to a sponsored academy, and we are going from strength to strength! We were delighted to finally move to our brand new, state of the art building in September 2017. Staff and students are thrilled with our new spacious, modern facilities.

Our OFSTED Inspection in July 2017 judged our Academy as ‘Outstanding’ in every category, a remarkable achievement under the very challenging parameters of the new framework! The full report is available to download from our home page; however some of the key comments published note the following:  

The school’s culture of aspiration and ambition is clearly demonstrated in classes.

Teachers are aspirational for their pupils and set high expectations for them.

Pupils respond positively. They are determined to do their best and are confident about meeting ambitious targets set by their teachers.’

We are now fully co-educational, with young ladies in every year group from 7-13.  Our recruitment drive proved to be exceedingly successful as we were oversubscribed for both Year 7 and Year 12.

As you can see from our website, our ethos of Scientific Enterprise is having a significant impact on the learning experiences our students are being introduced to and is contributing to the enrichment curriculum within and beyond the classroom. By focusing on the learning attitudes of Resilience, Reflectiveness, Resourcefulness and Reciprocity, our students are developing crucial life skills which will support their journey through to University and beyond. We have added many new sections to our website, so please take time to investigate more about the curriculum and provision we offer. We look forward to informing you of future events and to celebrate our students’ successes.

Yours

Rebecca Hickey
Assistant Director (Central)
