Harris Primary Academy Beckenham opened in 2015 with its first two Reception classes of 20 children each. The response in the local area was very supportive and we took an additional 46 Reception children in September 2016. In January 2017, we moved into our brand new, purpose built building, offering state of the art equipment and facilities.
