The central aim of Harris Academy Beckenham is to provide effective education and training for all of our students.
Through a well-structured, sustainable and effective programme of careers education, information, advice and guidance we believe that all can achieve both in school and in adult life. Our Careers Motto is: Career. Choice. Future.
By working in partnership with external agencies, businesses and members of our community we will provide accurate and focussed careers information, advice and guidance tailored to the individual needs of our students, and thereby enable all of our students to make informed choices about their career pathways.
Harris Academy Beckenham is proud to be working towards the Quality in Careers Standard, accredited through Investor in Careers.

Our vision and programme
Each year group has a career focus which is embedded through our careers provision.
Our careers policy (downloadable below) sets out the Academy’s arrangements for managing the access of providers to pupils at the Academy for the purpose of giving them information about the provider’s education or training offer. This complies with the Academy’s legal obligations under Section 42B of the Education Pupil entitlement.
Careermap provide a free and very informative magazine called Careermag which is aimed at parents that provides a wealth of information about the labour market, prospective salaries and career pathways. Careermap is free for all Harris students to access.
