The Harris Primary School is proud of its long history, and its contribution to what is now the City of Preston over the last 116 years. The School began life as The Harris Orphanage, built in 1888 with money bequeathed by Edmund Robert Harris, a wealthy Preston lawyer. The Orphanage was situated on Garstang Road on the site of the current Harris Knowledge Park.
In 1984 the school moved to its current site on Wychnor, Fulwood, changing its name to Preston Harris County Primary, and later, the Harris Primary School.
Over the years, the school has become synonymous with high standards of achievement and excellent teaching. We are proud of our position in the current Lancashire League Table which puts the school in eighth place overall based on last year's results. We invite you to come and see what we have to offer your child.
