Harris Experience

The Harris Experience is a programme for the most able secondary school students across the Harris Federation. It broadens students’ cultural and academic experiences to give them outstanding preparation for some of the country’s top universities, including Oxford and Cambridge.

Students are exposed to a wide range of cultural experiences including special events at Christie’s auctioneers, visits to the Royal Opera House, science events at Imperial College and bespoke lectures at the University of Oxford. Find out more about the Harris Experience.


Duke of Edinburgh’s Award

Students at Harris Academy Rainham have the opportunity to gain a Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, the world’s leading achievement award for young people. For the past seven decades, the charity has inspired and transformed the lives of millions of young people from all walks of life - encouraging young people to develop confidence, independence, commitment, leadership, and teamwork

Young people have to complete three sections - volunteering, physical activities and life skills - but everyone’s programme can be different depending on own interests. You will also complete an expedition involving orienteering with a map, cooking and camping in a team.

Achieving a Duke of Edinburgh’s Award is a passport to a brighter future, valued by employers and universities. Any student at Harris Academy Rainham can enrol on to the Bronze level award from the age of 14 (Year 9).


Jack Petchey Foundation

Established in 1999, the Jack Petchey Foundation makes grants to programmes and projects that benefit young people aged 11-25. There are nine awards per academic year from September to June and all award winners celebrate their achievements at an awards ceremony which is held in November. Students are nominated and winners chosen by their peers.

Each winner receives £250 which goes to the department of their choice to buy something for the school, for example books, a special trip for a club, or an addition to the playground.

The Jack Petchey Foundation exists to raise the aspirations of young people, to help them take advantage of opportunities and play a full part in society.
