PLEASE RETWEET: with 36,000 families at our schools in London and Essex, we want to supply food parcels for those in need (on top of free school meals which we’re already doing). We’ll fully fund this but URGENTLY need a supermarket chain to help.

Enrichment

Why not take part in our huge range of clubs and activities, including table tennis, chess, cheerleading, STEM, boxing, rounders and much besides.

Download our latest list of sports clubs (updated November 2019).

Our enrichment programme offers a broad and interesting variety of activities. They aim to extend and develop what students study during the day and provide opportunities for them to make accelerated progress and learn about new, more challenging concepts.

We also offer a huge range of visits and trips as well as the opportunity to take part in performances and productions.


Harris Experience

The Harris Experience is a programme for the most able secondary school students across the Harris Federation. It broadens students’ cultural and academic experiences to give them outstanding preparation for some of the country’s top universities, including Oxford and Cambridge.

Students are exposed to a wide range of cultural experiences including special events at Christie’s auctioneers, visits to the Royal Opera House, science events at Imperial College and bespoke lectures at the University of Oxford. Find out more about the Harris Experience.


Duke of Edinburgh’s Award

Students at Harris Academy Orpington have the opportunity to gain a Duke of Edinburgh’s Award. For the past seven decades, the charity has inspired and transformed the lives of millions of young people from all walks of life. From volunteering to physical activities, life skills to expeditions, achieving a Duke of Edinburgh’s Award is a passport to a brighter future, valued by employers and universities.

For more information about the awards at Harris Academy Orpington contact our Duke of Edinburgh’s Award co-ordinator Alex Spooner on a.spooner@harrisorpington.org.uk.


Life coaching

As a further means of supporting our students we also offer life coaching sessions in partnership with You Life Guidance.

You Life Guidance has more than 10 years’ experience improving the lives of young people and adults. They aim to help people reach their full potential using practical self-development in order to support mental health and wellbeing. They also work closely with the adults in the academy so that we take a holistic approach to improving lives. 


Jack Petchey Foundation

Established in 1999, the Jack Petchey Foundation makes grants to programmes and projects that benefit young people aged 11-25. There are nine awards per academic year from September to June and all award winners celebrate their achievements at an awards ceremony which is held in November. Students are nominated and winners chosen by their peers.

Each winner receives £200 to spend on something for the school, for example something academic, such as books, or something to celebrate achievement, such as a special trip for a club, or an addition to the playground.

The Jack Petchey Foundation exists to raise the aspirations of young people, to help them take advantage of opportunities and play a full part in society.
