Welcome from the Executive Principal
Welcome to the Harris Primary Academy Orpington website, which aims to give you a glimpse into life at our school and community.
Our aim is to provide our pupils with a well-rounded and enjoyable education that ensures each child succeeds academically, physically and emotionally - preparing them for life in an ever-changing world. Our evolving curriculum has been designed to challenge and inspire the children; exposing them to a wide variety of exciting experiences including visits, events, sports, music and drama but also time to reflect and respond. As a result, our children develop excellent behaviour and social skills while they learn.
This summer, we are thrilled to be developing a brand new Early Years setting – which will provide our children with a large, safe and engaging outdoor setting. We are also reorganising our classroom layouts to ensure that all children can access provision and facilities which will support their learning.
We are extremely proud to be part of the Harris Federation which combines 42 primary, secondary and all-through academies across London. As part of a thriving community of schools we benefit from the ability to share, learn, support and challenge each other as we grow together.
If you would like to find out more, please do not hesitate to contact us.
