Harris Academy Orpington
Harris Academy Orpington combines the traditional values of good manners, strong discipline and respect with excellent teaching.
We aim to inspire and support every student to achieve his or her personal best by fostering a love of learning, a passion for enquiry and a dedication to being the best they can be. We take a collaborative approach to getting the very best out of each other. Our motto is Together: We Can.
Committed, optimistic, resilient
Our learning ethos is designed to encourage students to become committed, optimistic, resilient and enterprising. Learning is not just something that happens inside the classroom. With one of the world’s most exciting cities on our doorstep, we do everything we can to ensure that the boys and girls experience the best of what London has to offer, including museums, libraries, architecture and much more.
Harris Academy Orpington does not tolerate bullying in any form. All members of the academy community are encouraged to respect each other and talk about problems they may encounter.
We hope that this website gives you a sense of our drive and ambition. Speaking with our students and staff is the best way to find out about what we have on offer. If you are considering our academy for your son or daughter, please do come along to one of our open events or contact us to arrange a visit.
