- About Us
Welcome to the Harris Academy Purley web site.
Harris Academy Purley opened in September 2009. Building on the Harris Federation’s excellent track record in Croydon, we have a student and staff body who are eager to make their mark as the first generation at our Academy.
We combine the traditional values of discipline, respect and good manners with contemporary best practice in teaching and technology. With these core values in place, we aim to send out into the world students that are happy and educated, with the drive and ambition to be successful.
In providing our students with a top rate education, we want staying on for Sixth Form to be the norm, not the exception. I am therefore particularly excited about our new Sixth Form which we will run in partnership with the highly successful Harris Federation Post 16. Our spectacular new and refurbished buildings, which are coming shortly, will match our aspirations for an Academy that brings learning alive.
Choosing the right secondary school to send your son or daughter to is an act of trust – but I hope that once you have come to know us, you will find that Harris Academy Purley is a school you can choose with confidence.
I very much look forward to meeting you and your son or daughter.
With best wishes,
Mrs Carol-Anne Alcock
Executive Principal, Harris Academy Purley
