Meet the Principal

Mr Allman, PrincipalI am delighted to welcome you to Harris Academy Purley and privileged to be the Principal as we embark on the next stage of the school’s development. 

Our new motto - ‘to learn, to think, to act’ - enshrines a core tenet of our philosophy and that is that education in the classroom is only the beginning of a young person’s development and of education in general. Learning can only come to fruition once it is assimilated and an individual is able to think for themselves. In turn, thought must lead to action and practical application. 

A motto cannot just be a soundbite so those values and that ethos will apply to all we do and will be the foundation of the educational and extra-curricular opportunities offered to our students throughout the year.

Our students, boys and girls aged 11-19, deserve nothing less than an outstanding education and our aim is to make sure that our students of today are prepared for whatever challenges await them in the future. For that to happen, our staff must be experts in their field and must always encourage individuals to reach their potential. The curriculum is designed so that students, regardless of starting points, will thrive in an educational environment where the rigours and demands of the different subjects are embraced and taught in a supportive manner without compromising the academic challenges needed for success at all key stages.

We expect our students to be polite, mature, enthusiastic and demonstrate exemplary behaviour and they understand that we work together as team. They also understand the role they play in the quality of the school and are as integral to our success as every member of staff. 

I look forward to welcoming you to our Academy.

Tim Allman
Principal
