Harris Academy Beckenham has two more open mornings this October, on 16 and 19 October. You can register your interest at info@harrisbeckenham.org.uk.

The School is riding high at the moment, celebrating both an outstanding Ofsted and recognition for the progress that its pupils make. Here's what the School told us:

‘The school’s culture of aspiration and ambition is clearly demonstrated in classes. Teachers are aspirational for their pupils and set high expectations for them. Pupils respond positively. They are determined to do their best and are confident about meeting ambitious targets set by their teachers.’ (OFSTED 2017)

It is our ethos of Aspire Discover Achieve that was recognised and praised in our recent inspection, and which contributed to Harris Academy Beckenham being judged as ‘outstanding’ in every category. In addition, the outstanding progress made by our students, placing us as the most successful school in Bromley (Progress 8 2016), vastly impressed the inspectors.

Since opening in 2011, Harris Academy Beckenham has gone from strength to strength. We have been oversubscribed for the last three years, rapidly becoming the school of choice in the local area. Our GCSE and A Level results have improved each year, with our English and Maths combined score in 2016 reaching an outstanding 80% A*-C. Our ambition and aspiration will ensure that we continue to focus on the success of all of our students, irrespective of background.

We have a harmonious community with excellent relationships between students and staff, and our students have a focused and mature attitude towards their academic studies.
‘Pupils’ conduct around the school is exemplary and the school is a calm and orderly environment.’ (OFSTED 2017)


Our ethos at Harris Academy Beckenham aims to create outstanding scientific learners, as we train our students in resilience, reflectiveness, resourcefulness and reciprocity. These crucial skills underpin an enterprising attitude to learning and have already had significant impact on our students’ progress. In order to equip our students with the skills required to be confident and eloquent writers, readers and speakers, our innovative WORD programme is placed at the heart of our curriculum.

Our focus on raising aspirations at every level has contributed to this excellent performance, and we intend to sustain and improve these results further year on year. Harris Academy Beckenham is an enriching, innovative and swiftly improving academy, of which I am very proud to be the Principal.

We look forward to welcoming you to our open events to be able to share with you further details of our Academy, our successes and the enriching and rewarding learning opportunities we can offer your son or daughter at Harris Academy Beckenham.
