We would like to thank you and all of the staff at Harris Beckenham for all their hard work and support. Aside from a few technical issues in the beginning, it has been pretty faultless for our son's home-schooling and he is very much looking forward to coming back to school. https://t.co/v1CXaalWqY

A massive thank you to and our Y11 cohort for such a thought provoking Q&A session last Thursday. It was so enlightening to hear our Pigeon English author’s insight into the writing of his text, and for our students to pose their own questions, we learnt so much! https://t.co/rflboCxTvX

Student Voice

The voice of our students at Harris Academy Beckenham is of vital importance. Please click below to complete a survey to help continue to improve your student experience.

The voice of our students plays an important part in the successful running of the Academy. There are many avenues through which students can voice their views, both informally and formally. As you can see from the student voice structure below there is a clear process for students being involved in the running of the academy, from their first day at the school.

If you would like to find out more about our student voice at Harris Academy Beckenham then please email Mr Christopher: t.christopher@harrisbeckenham.org.uk.


Student voice table of leadership


Head Girl and Head Boy

The Head Boy and Head Girl in Year 12 lead on all elements of student voice, overseeing the Student Commission and Student Leadership group that meet on a regular basis. Meet our senior student leaders for 2019-20!

Head boy and girl


Student Leadership Group

The Student Leadership Group (SLG) meets once a half term and is made up of a student from each tutor group across years 7-10.To be part of the SLG, students are elected in the first term of each year.

An agenda is created by staff, and students are given time to prepare for each meeting with their fellow tutor group members. Minutes are written up for each meeting and presented back to senior staff where actions are put in place. Feedback is then given to the rest of the student body via HouseMail at the end of our weekly assemblies.


Student Commission

The Student Commission meets once a month throughout the academic year and is made up of 20-30 students from years 7-12. This group of students are split into three focus groups: leaders of learning who assess the learning in the classroom; an action group who focus on change that the Student Leadership Group (see above) discuss; and a research group who find out relevant issues amongst the student body. To be part of the Student Commission students are required to complete an application form.
