Meet Our Executive Principal
David Astin, Executive Principal
I am delighted to welcome you to the Harris Academy Orpington website. It is with enormous pride that I introduce our incredible school and the opportunities that benefit students so much.
As a local parent myself, I know the decision about which school to choose for your child is very important. That’s why at Harris Academy Orpington we work hard to build and maintain strong, trusting relationships with the families of all our children.
As Executive Principal, I make no excuses for having the highest expectations of our students; I believe that we should all practise courtesy, consideration and cooperation and we instil these values in the students from their very first day.
If you would like to come and see the academy in action and are not able to attend one of our open mornings, please contact us either by phone or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. We would be delighted to show you around our academy, of which we are extremely proud.
Mr David Astin
