Harris Academy Beckenham

Academy Specialisms:

Scientific Enterprise

Academy Description:

Harris Academy Beckenham is an 11-18 school which opened in September 2011 and became co-educational in 2012 admitting girls for the first time into Year 7. The Academy has specialisms in Science and Enterprise alongside a broad, balanced and rigorous curriculum. The sixth form joined the Harris Federation Post 16 in September 2012.

We have improved our headline 5A*-C (including English and Maths) by 26% in our opening two years, and our A Level  results have improved year on year also.

Academy Ethos:

  • A personal best culture in which parents are confident their son or daughter is being fully stretched and developed
  • Emphasis on the traditional values of good manners, strong discipline and smart uniform – as well as the best of modern teaching methods and technology
  • Teaching that is consistently good and outstanding
  • An Academy that nurtures strong interpersonal skills and the aspiration to be successful
  • The support and structures to inspire the best in every student, whether they need to be stretched, are struggling, or are somewhere in the middle
  • An admissions system that welcomes students of every academic ability
  • A culture of involving parents fully with their children’s education and school life in general
  • A smart, neat and affordable Academy uniform
  • Students and staff that become established as trusted and reliable faces in the local community
  • Active support from the Harris Federation, a charity with a clear track record in developing outstanding schools
