The school was formerly a community school under the direct control of Croydon London Borough Council. However the school was rated as "inadequate" in its most recent Ofsted inspection report and was put into special measures in January 2013. The governors of the school decided to pursue academy status, with the school becoming part of the Harris Federation in September 2013.[citation needed] The school was then renamed Harris Academy Upper Norwood.

Harris Academy Upper Norwood offered GCSEs, BTECs and OCR Nationals as programmes of study for pupils. The school specialised in languages and the arts, and had additional facilities for the specialisms.

In September 2014, the school amalgamated with Harris Academy South Norwood, sharing teachers and a sixth form campus.[2]
