Federation Sports Day 2017

On Thursday 13th July, our students joined over 10,000 other Harris students from across London for the tenth annual Harris Federation Sports Day at Crystal Palace National Sports Arena.

Also in attendance was our sponsor, Lord Harris of Peckham, CEO of the Federation Sir Dan Moynihan and several GB athletes, who were all on hand to award medals throughout the day.

Unfortunately, Purley was unable to win the overall Boys trophy or Girls trophy this year, but we did have some notable finishes:
