Welcome from the Principal

To really get to know a school, it is best to talk to the children in it.  If you were to speak to our children, you would see that they are happy at school and excited by what they are learning each day. 

At Harris Primary Academy Benson we aim to make learning irresistible, ensuring our children develop a genuine life-long love of learning and that every child flourishes by delivering an enjoyable curriculum that allows all children to succeed academically, physically, emotionally and socially.   

There is plenty of time for fun and creativity throughout the school day and everything we do is underpinned by dedicated teaching of reading, writing and maths.  This combination means that our children become eager, confident and imaginative learners.

Our children are at the heart of everything we do with the academy and it is our committed ambition to empower all our children to become compassionate, polite, ambitious, global citizens of the future.

We are extremely proud to be part of the Harris Federation which combines 45 primary, secondary and all-through academies across London.  As part of a thriving community of schools we benefit from the ability to share, learn, support and challenge each other. 

As parents, you know your children and their needs best and we are delighted that you are considering us for your children’s education. 

Please do get in touch if you would like any further information about everything on offer at our Academy.

Mrs V Forbes                                 
Principal
