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
