Our Year 10 GCSE Drama students were taken to a live theatre production of Boys from the Blackstuff by James Graham in preparation for next year's Live Theatre Review. For many of them, this was their first time seeing live theatre, and all thoroughly enjoyed the production.

Harris Academies
All Academies in our Federation aim to transform the lives of the students they serve by bringing about rapid improvement in examination results, personal development and aspiration.

Central Office


















Harris Academy Beckenham is rated 'Outstanding' by Ofsted. The most recent assessment, made following an inspection in May 2023, follows the previous rating of 'Outstanding' in 2017.

During the 2023 visit, Ofsted found strong evidence to show that students "receive an exceptional education". The inspectors, who spent two days at the Academy, were very impressed by the standard of teaching and learning, describing the curriculum as ‘ambitious’. They also reported that students have access to a wide range of subjects and were “happy, highly articulate and enthusiastic about their learning”.

Inspectors were highly complimentary about the Academy’s personal development programme which they described as "comprehensive and well-sequenced".  They also praised the quality of advice provided to students about universities and careers.

The highest praise, however, was reserved for the Academy’s students. Finding that students’ attitudes to learning are “extremely positive”, the inspectors said that students are “focused and purposeful during lessons, producing high-quality work”.  They also described student behaviour as “exemplary” and found that students are “kind towards each other”.

Ciara Warnock, Principal of Harris Academy Beckenham, said:

“This is a fantastic outcome and is testament to the whole Academy community who have worked incredibly hard to uphold the highest standards in all areas.  The inspectors’ report is hugely positive and shows how impressed they are with our Academy and what we are achieving here.

“It is particularly heartening to read such brilliant comments about our students.  They were a credit to themselves, their families and our Academy community and I could not have been prouder of them.

“We are highly ambitious for our Academy and our students and we are determined to continuously enhance standards even further in all areas.  This report will spur us on to drive standards and find additional ways of inspiring, supporting and challenging our students.”
