Harris Academy Purley is an oversubscribed 11-19 co-educational Academy with currently 1000 students on roll, situated on the Croydon/Surrey border with excellent transport to central London, Surrey and the south coast. Open since September 2009, we were judged Outstanding. The Academy moved into a 20 million state-of-the-art new building in September 2012. Harris Purley offers specialisms in Enterprise and Sport using its extensive playing fields. Our sixth form provision is expanding with increasing numbers of students taking Mathematics and Further Mathematics. Student progress is in the top 10% nationally.

We are a happy, hard-working and highly ambitious community in which students and staff treat one another with care and respect. The Academy combines traditional values of discipline and good-manners with contemporary best practice in teaching and technology.

Academy Ethos:

Harris Academy Purley is a school where students are given the opportunity and encouragement to achieve their personal best. By the time they leave the Academy, we want our young people to be happy and educated with the desire and drive to succeed. This means:

Each student gets the individual care and attention they need to thrive and achieve their personal best.
Teachers bring learning alive and class sizes are kept as small as possible.
Students participate in a broad range of after-school activities.
All students contribute to Academy life by taking on positions of responsibility. This may, for example, be through directing an Academy play, captaining a sports team or playing in a band.
Everyone works together to maintain a happy, safe and orderly environment. We instil mutual respect between students and staff and have zero tolerance of bullying in any form.
We promote high expectations and set standards of excellence. Staying on for Sixth Form is encouraged so that it becomes the norm, not the exception. Our Sixth Form is being run in conjunction with the Harris Sixth form.
