Harris Academies
All Academies in our Federation aim to transform the lives of the students they serve by bringing about rapid improvement in examination results, personal development and aspiration.


We pride ourselves on the creativity in our highly interactive classrooms. Our commitment to teaching has the classroom environment change every half term to fit with the topics and themes.

Every half term, each class learns about a different topic.
Topics we have taught are:

  • Space Invaders
  • Me & My Family
  • Dangerous Dragons
  • London Calling
  • World War II
  • Beyond The Wardrobe
  • It's All Greek to Me
  • The Land Before Time
  • Wild Things
  • Fantastic Farms
  • London's Burning
  • Gadgets & Gizmos

Every classroom is stocked with a host of literacy resources and we strive to continually add to these.

Every classroom, all the way up to Year 6, have a role play area where the children are encouraged to use their imaginations
 and create independent writing based on their topic.

Harris Primary Academy Crystal Palace is wholeheartedly committed to supporting the whole child from within the classroom and is an inclusive environment within which to work.
