Welcome

 

 

As part of the Harris Federation, we benefit enormously from the expertise of the central team and opportunities to work alongside the outstanding Harris Federation Sixth Form, of which we are not formally part but from which we benefit.  

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.

The Sixth Form years are the most stimulating and engaging phase of a student’s education. They develop more as learners over these 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 goals are firstly to ensure that all students reach their target destination, whether university or the professional work place, and secondly that they 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, work and happiness
  • Self-identity and a feeling of self-worth
  • Excellent opportunities and experiences

Student Principal Announcement

The role of head boy and girl has a long standing history within education.  But at Harris Academy Orpington we feel this role should be decided based on the person for the position and not on their gender.  With this in mind, from 2021, the title of head boy/girl is replaced with Student Principal.  We would therefore like to formally congratulate our Year 12 pupils, Georgia-Jane Cullern and Lee Carew who have been appointed the prestigious titles of Student Principal for the next academic year. 

Georgia-Jane comments, “Thank you for this opportunity! I’m honoured to be Student Principal, I can’t wait to have a positive impact on the school and help this school and the students be the best it possibly it can be.” Lee adds, “I am looking forward to being Student Principal and work with the teachers and students at Harris Academy Orpington.”

The role of Vice Student Principal is awarded to Abbie McNeice and Jude Moulton.  Jude who is passionate to get started commented, “I am honoured to be a part of this leadership group and I cannot wait to work with senior leaders and students to make this school a better place”.  Abbie added, “Thank you so much for my new role as Vice Student Principal, I am very glad to be working closely with other students, teachers and the Student Principals to help this school and its students reach full potential”.

All four pupils were awarded their roles after undergoing a rigorous application process, including video hustings and interviews.  All students performed amazingly throughout the entire process and it was a very close call. 

We are confident that they will ensure that the positive changes which they spoke so passionately about in their applications and in the interview process, will be implemented.
