Harris Primary Academy in Orpington now officially open

The official opening ceremony was organised and hosted by the academy’s Year 6 children and attended by Lord Harris of Peckham, the Federation’s sponsor, Sir Dan Moynihan, the chief executive, and Sabeena Hasan, regional primary director.

During the ceremony the children performed a selection of songs, with each year group preparing a performance piece relating to how they and their school are ’amazing’. 

Following the event, the academy’s Executive Principal Matt Britt said: "It was great to welcome so many important visitors and our children certainly showed what a bright and talented bunch they are on a daily basis.

"Our first term and a half as Harris Primary Orpington couldn’t have gone any better and we are looking forward to building on this on our journey to ’Outstanding’."
