Harris Federation tops school performance tables
School league tables show Harris Federation is top performing large multi-academy trust
Schools Minister, Nick Gibb, says Harris Federation is ‘leading the way’
New school performance tables published by the Department for Education place the Harris Federation of 44 schools as the top performing large multi-academy trust (MAT) in England.
With a ‘well above average’ progress score of +0.54 across the Federation, Harris academies have outperformed any other local authority group for pupil progress.
Harris Federation academies are the top school for progress in five of the nine boroughs in which the Federation operates and three Harris academies – Harris Academy Battersea, Harris Academy Morden and Harris Academy Bromley – are in the top 1% of schools in the whole country for pupil progress.
The new tables also show that the Harris Federation is the highest performing MAT in the country for pupil progress and EBACC qualifications for disadvantaged students.
Commenting on the new performance data, Schools Standards Minister, Nick Gibb, said that the Harris Federation is ‘leading the way’ in delivering excellent results for pupils.
Sir Dan Moynihan, Chief Executive of the Harris Federation said:
Closing the gap between disadvantaged children and their peers is the reason the Harris Federation exists; today’s tables demonstrate that the Harris Federation is making a real difference to the progress of over 32,000 children in London.
School performance figures matter – not just to educationalists and politicians – but to every family who wants their child to achieve their full potential and progress into a successful adult life.
By having high expectations of every student – whatever their starting point – and sharing what works across all our academies, the Harris Federation is setting the standard for excellence.
