Vanishing points, orthogonal lines, horizons... Do you know what they are? Our Year 5 children sure do! We have thought about how Van Gogh used these in his art, and have created some amazing perspective drawings of our classrooms in art.


Attenborough class have been busy making animal faces. We have had an amazing time making them.


A problem shared is a problem halved, and here at Beckenham Green we wholeheartedly encourage our students to feel confident to share any anxieties. We have been reading ’ ‘Ruby’s Worry’ which eloquently communicates this to all year groups.


Good morning, our Year 4 class are currently reading Varjak Paw, and love it. It would be such an amazing opportunity for them if you could pay them a virtual visit, if you could squeeze us in? Thank you!

Year 6 have been learning about classification in science. This morning they have been classifying sweets by their features 🍬


Here in Year 5, after smiling through the technical issues, we have Ryan with us (virtually!) introducing the children to the play leaders course.


*Parent reminder* This Friday, 18th September, is ‘Jeans for Genes’ day. 1 in 25 children have a genetic disorder globally, so let’s do our part by all donating £1 if we can, and wearing our best denim to help this worthwhile cause.

Promoting the love of reading is something integral for us all here at Beckenham Green. What better way than to give each class a reading journal, so we can all share our favourite books? Meet Elvis- where is he off to next?

Welcome from the Head of Academy

Welcome to Harris Primary Academy Beckenham Green. We believe that every child is unique and that each deserves the opportunity to be happy, feel valued and experience success.

As a small academy, with a single form in each year group, we aim to give our pupils a balanced, exciting and truly enjoyable education that prepares them for success in secondary school and beyond. Our children are at the heart of everything we do, we all believe HPABG is their school and we put them at the centre of every decision we make.

Located in the heart of Beckenham, we are part of the Harris Federation which runs five other successful primary academies in Bromley and more than 40 academies in total in and around London. We benefit from being part of this thriving community of schools.

We have high expectations of ourselves, our children and the families who support them. These high expectations mean that we are always striving to improve on our previous best. We value the qualities of hard work and perseverance as much as we do excellent outcomes. We are looking for every child to achieve their personal best.

The aim of all our teachers, support staff and leaders is to give every pupil an education they enjoy and which prepares them for academic success and confident, happy lives.

We have 30 places available in Reception. Please do come along to meet us if you are interested in a place – you can contact us through the school office to arrange a guided visit. All of the staff here look forward to meeting you.
