About Harris Primary Academy Beckenham
Harris Primary Academy Beckenham opened in 2015 with its first two Reception classes of 20 children each, and now educates children from Reception to Year 3.

In January 2017, we moved into our brand new, purpose built building, offering state of the art equipment and facilities. Each year we will take an additional 60 children into Reception year until the school is full in 2021. Our academy is situated in a quiet, residential area with large landscaping and grounds just opposite Kelsey Park in Beckenham.
