Welcome To Harris Primary Academy Kenley

The Harris Federation is one the highest performing multi academy trusts in the country. In Primary education the Academies have been judged to be the top performing group of schools compared to all other local authorities and academy trusts in England, in 2015, 2016 and 2017 by the highly respected Education Policy Institute.

 

Harris Primary Academy Kenley is an outstanding school. It is outstanding not just because of the academic achievements of the pupils but for many other reasons too. The pupils are diligent, polite and hard working. They have a love for learning and an inquisitive nature. The staff at the academy are talented and dedicated and our parents and wider community support what we do.

 

I believe that all children deserve the very best education and that as a result of this they should have every opportunity life has to offer.

 

Scott Palmer

Head of Academy

 

 

Choosing a Primary Academy for your child can be a lot like choosing a place to live. Parents often very quickly get a sense of whether their child will be happy in a particular school, which is why we would warmly encourage you to visit.

Our aim is to provide a happy, safe and focused Academy environment that engages children fully in their learning. We plan and tailor the curriculum to our pupils so that each is taught in the way that suits them best.

We encourage all children to follow their natural gifts and talents and nurture these in every way we can both in classes and through extracurricular activities and trips. Our pupils are sensible, eager to learn and enjoy coming to the Academy each day.

We are looking forward to welcoming as many parents as possible to the Academy and are very happy to show you around individually – just call the Academy office on 0208 660 2714, to make an appointment.
