Open Evening, Thursday 19 September
Our open evening will be held on Thursday 19th September 2019 between 5.00pm – 8.00pm. Please note there will be no admittance to the Academy after 7.30pm.
The Harris City Academy Crystal Palace car park will be closed. However, if you or your child is disabled, arrangements will be made allowing you to have access to the car park if you are coming by car. Please telephone the Academy providing details of your car registration number, model and colour before 12:30pm on Thursday 19th September 2019.
It is recommended that you give yourself plenty of time to view Harris City Academy Crystal Palace. Over 2,000 people attend our annual Open Evening. The information that follows is therefore important to ensure that you gain the most from your visit to the Academy.
Parking in the roads near to Harris City Academy Crystal Palace will be impossible because of the very large number of visitors and a traffic management order is in place. This will mean that there will be a one way system in the roads surrounding the Academy, on Mowbray Road, Maberley Road (in front of the Academy) and Sylvan Road. In addition, parking restrictions are in place.
The car park at Harris City Academy Crystal Palace will be closed. Residents will have parked on both sides of the street and consequently parking will be unavailable.
We strongly advise that you walk to Harris City Academy Crystal Palace. We have arranged a free park and ride system involving a shuttle bus from Canada Gate car park at Crystal Palace Park. There is ample parking in that area and a bus will transport people to and from Harris City Academy Crystal Palace at frequent intervals commencing at 4.30pm through to 7.15pm. After 7.30pm the bus will operate until 8.15pm but will only take visitors back to the Canada Gate car park.
