Welcome from the Principal

It is my privilege as Principal of Harris City Academy Crystal Palace to welcome you to our website.
 
Our vision is simple - ‘All Can Achieve’.  Students are at the centre of everything we do and we aim to give all the necessary foundations for success by helping students develop the skills and attributes that will provide them with real life-chances.
 
Students are expected to work hard and to achieve their individual best academically, to develop skills relevant to the 21st Century and to develop the self-confidence and sense of purpose necessary for success in a highly competitive global society. Harris City Academy Crystal Palace provides a safe, yet challenging environment where students can succeed and excel, and by having the highest of expectations all can truly achieve.  
 

Broad and varied curriculum

As well as our national achievements, including our third consecutive Outstanding Ofsted (2014), we pride ourselves on the educational experience we give our students. Harris City Academy Crystal Palace has an enviable reputation for academic success and each summer we celebrate impressive examination results both at GCSE and A Level. Our success is down to the hard work of our students, our excellent teachers, a broad and varied academic curriculum and an educational environment emphasising the traditional standards of uniform, discipline and respect.
 
Learning not only happens in the classroom; the Academy has a rich and extensive extra curriculum offer to support our learners and prepare them for life as balanced, happy individuals. We have a wide range of hugely successful enrichment opportunities available including sports -  the Academy competes at both local and national level, extensive arts clubs and a wide range of other activities such as our award winning debating society.  Additionally, the Academy offers The Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme to Gold level and an extensive programme of local, national, international trips and visits.
 

Forward-thinking

This pioneering, forward-thinking Academy was the first of now 47 academies within the Harris Federation, and in addition to our superb facilities we are also able to access the wide ranging support offered by being part of the Federation.

Please come and see for yourself and find out more about the opportunities on offer. We look forward to welcoming you and your son / daughter to our inspiring Academy.
