Harris Federation scientists visit Harris Manchester College

  On the 6th November 2010, Science Teams from across Harris Federation were fortunate enough to be given the opportunity to experience a day of stimulating lectures at Harris Manchester College in Oxford. They were privileged with a trip to the History of Science museum, viewing a blackboard with Einstein’s lecture notes (on calculating the expansion rate of the universe) from 1931 preserved on it.   Professor Brian Foster gave an understanding into Einstein’s Universe; from his most renowned works (and the equation), through to the man himself. Professor Foster was accompanied by Jack Liebeck on the violin who played the beautiful pieces Einstein loved to play himself to inspire his thought processes.   Einstein’s work lives on – his equation is used millions of times a day all over the world.  In the next few years we hope to make significant progress towards realising his dream [using the Large Hadron Collider in Cern, Switzerland] to explain the Universe as simply and beautifully as his inspiration – the music of Bach and Mozart. The Science Teams gained fascinating insights into the latest research into the collision of ‘heavy metal’ ions which was subsequently reported on the BBC two days later.   Solar Energy Devices was the next topic for the scientists as they explored the current research on photovoltaic cells by Dr Henry Snaith. After hearing about the details of how the photodiode creates electricity, they were led to consider how this technology could alter the world’s production of electricity as our sources of fossil fuels dwindle.   To close the day, staff heard from Dr Renee Hlozek about “astronomy for all” and the current research happening within that field. She closed with this thought:   “We all yearn to understand the what, when and how of the Universe.  We are living in an exciting time of answers.”

Harris Academy Purley judged to be making OUTSTANDING PROGRESS

  Harris Academy Purley is the sixth of eight Harris Academies to be inspected which has been judged to be either Outstanding or to be making Outstanding Progress.     Comments made by the inspectors include:   The academy has secured exceptional improvement in the short time since it was established and the positive impact of the actions taken demonstrate an outstanding capacity for further improvement. The academy is led exceptionally well. The Principal and senior team have an ambitious vision for the academy and they have been successful in inspiring staff and students who now share a common sense of purpose. Self-evaluation is very accuarte and, consequently, those responsible for leading the academy have an exceptionally clear picture of its strengths and areas for development. The management and development of staff is exemplary and there has been dramatic improvement in the quality of teaching. Senior leaders have unflinchingly challenged poor performance and provided high quality professional development opportunities for staff and these have been valued by staff. Attendance and punctuality have improved rapidly and they are now above average. Improvements mean that teachers now have higher expectations of students and lesson planning takes good account of their prior attainment. The Harris federation makes a strong contribution to all aspects of the academy's work.   Read the full report here
