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.
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.

We offer our students bespoke careers advice and opportunities to develop their understanding of the working world. Our students are actively encouraged to partake in work experience, seminars and careers talks to further their prospects and set out on the path to successfully fulfil their ambitions.
A weekly bulletin is published to students in years 10 and above to keep them up to date with the latest opportunities available.
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.
