Our academy is a member of the Harris Federation, a group of 44 primary and secondary academies in and around London educating some 30,000 young people.This is a not-for-profit charity with over twenty five years’ experience of primary, secondary and sixth form education in and around London.
The charity was created by Lord Harris of Peckham. He and his family take an active interest in every Harris Academy, supporting us financially and with their time. In addition to the Harris Federation, good causes supported by the Harris family include the NSPCC and Great Ormond Street Hospital.
Every Harris Academy is different, serving its own community, led and run by its Principal and other senior leaders: we are deliberately a federation rather than a chain. But we share an ethos that ensures children and teenagers have access to an excellent education within a happy, caring and supportive environment.
As a result of this, all Harris academies so far to have been inspected by Ofsted have been rated either ‘good’ or ‘outstanding’ with the vast majority being Outstanding. Many of these academies replaced schools previously considered to have been failing.
The Harris Federation Teaching School Alliance enables us not only to train and develop teachers and leaders in our own academies, but also to do so for other schools.
