Absolutely fabulous day Yr 12. Such a pleasure to work with you all.

Enrichment & Extension Programme

Here at Harris Academy Purley we value every opportunity to extend the learning for our students.

Our Enrichment and Extension activities not only give students the chance to further develop their skills learnt in lessons but allow them to try new activities, such as Fencing. 

We run a wide range of clubs throughout the school day, ranging from sports clubs to homework and study support sessions.
