Harris Academies
All Academies in our Federation aim to transform the lives of the students they serve by bringing about rapid improvement in examination results, personal development and aspiration.


We are part of the Harris Federation Sixth Form. Our sixth formers are role models for our younger students.

The Sixth Form at Harris Academy Orpington provides students with the opportunity to study in an exciting and rewarding learning environment. We aim to prepare young people for an ever-changing world that values self-confident, well-educated and enterprising people.
Sixth form is the most stimulating and engaging phase of a student’s education and they will develop more as leaners over the next two years than at any point in their education so far. Students will experience more independence in their thinking and learning than ever before, and Harris Academy Orpington will help them to develop these essential skills for the future. Our goal is firstly to ensure that all students reach their target destination, whether it’s University or the professional work place, but secondly that they then continue to learn, long after they have moved on.
We are committed to the success of each of our students and aim to deliver:
• Exam success
• Challenge, relevance and engagement
• Appropriate skills for living, for work and for happiness
• Self-identity and a feeling of self-worth
• Excellent opportunities and experiences
