Harris Primary Free School Peckham opened in 2012 to meet the demand for high quality primary school places in Southwark. We now have two classes in every year group from year R to Year 5, with Year 6 starting in September 2018. By growing slowly but steadily, we are able to give every one of our children a great deal of personal attention.

•QTS (or equivalent)
•An excellent teacher with a proven record of raising standards in reading and writing.
