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 seventh 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 this September. Staff and students are thrilled with our new spacious, modern facilities and have settled well to our new home.

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.’

Our 2017 results were yet again record breaking! Our A2 students attained a remarkable B- average grade; this is significantly higher than national averages, and the highest in the Federation! The number of students securing university places is rapidly increasing, now almost 90%, a growing number of which are Russell Group Universities.

Against the new measure of basics (English and Maths GCSE combined) we were yet again well above the national expectations, scoring 69% and our progress 8 score is 0.38 (provisional). The number of students securing the EBAC measure is increasing yearly demonstrating success across a range of subjects.

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
Executive Principal
