House System

Our house system is designed to enrich the lives of our students, creating a sense of community belonging, equal opportunity and healthy competition within our Academy.

At Harris Academy Beckenham, we understand that our students' academy experience goes beyond the classroom and that memories are made through valuable experiences, events, and healthy competition. Therefore, our house system sits at the heart of our community and each student belongs to a House as part their tutor group.  

Our House System is underpinned by the 4 R’s and two of our Core Character Traits

  • Ambition - a strand of Reflectiveness. Our house system offers students the opportunity to be House Captains. These Students are the pillars of our community reflecting their hardworking and responsible nature. They help promote and lead our events and competitions as well as becoming role models to our younger students.  
  • Courage - a strand of Resilience. Our House system is driven by a sense of healthy competition and encourages students to step out of their comfort zone and try new things. Our house competition calendar is full of exciting opportunities all of which are designed to encourage students to be courageous and discover just what they are capable of…from charity fundraising to sports day!

Our four houses

House 1

Each student and staff member at Harris Academy Beckenham belongs to a house. Tutor groups are named after their houses within each year group, for example in Year 7:

  • 7A1 - Attenborough House
  • 7A2 - Attenborough House
  • 7S3 - Seacole House
  • 7S4 - Seacole House
  • 7F5 - Franklin House
  • 7F6 - Franklin House
  • 7T7 - Turing House
  • 7T8 - Turing House

Celebrating our science and enterprise specialism, our houses are named after leading scientists and innovators in business who have pushed forwards the boundaries within their fields:

  • David Attenborough - English broadcaster, biologist, natural historian, author, and leader on climate change. Key character traits: Respect, Curiosity and Kindness.
  • Mary Seacole - British Jamaican businesswoman, world traveller, popular author, and heroine of the Crimean War. Key character traits: Courage, Optimism and Ambition.
  • Rosalind Franklin - English chemist and X-ray crystallographer whose work was central to the understanding of the molecular structures of DNA. Key character traits: Creativity, Integrity and Curiosity.
  • Alan Turing - English mathematician, computer scientist, logician, cryptanalyst, philosopher, and theoretical biologist. Key character traits: Ambition, Integrity and Curiosity.

House calendar

Throughout the academic year students are given many opportunities to represent their house and become involved in different house events. Our house calendar is full of exciting events which encourage healthy competition as well as offering students the chance to explore subjects beyond the classroom.
