Children can start our Academy in the nursery when they are 3 years old and they leave after Year Six, when they are 11. Our Academy is an exciting place to learn and our pupils work hard and behave well.

About Harris Primary Free School Peckham
Harris Primary Free School Peckham opened in 2012 to meet the demand for high quality primary school places in Southwark, and now educates children from Reception to Year 6.

We have a superb team of teachers and support staff, all of whom are experts in primary education. We are an academy that values and invests in staff, excellent training, development, and planned career progression. We are a resilient team of ordinary individuals who genuinely enjoy working together to create excellent life chances for pupils within a challenging context, and we have an opportunity for you to join us.
By growing slowly but steadily, we are able to give every one of our 330 children a great deal of personal attention. We have a superb team of teachers and support staff, all of whom are experts in primary education.
As well as focusing on helping our pupils become confident readers, writers and mathematicians, we will also be ensuring that, as our pupils progress through the school there is a range of music, drama and sporting activities for them to choose from.
We are proud to be part of a vibrant and supportive international community and are keen that parents and families play an active part in our school life. Our building is smart and modern, and we are fortunate enough to have a lovely playground and excellent equipment and facilities.
