Where does the sky start? If our skin cells renew every seven years, what makes you the same person as you were 7 years ago? Is it better play well and lose or play badly and win? Do we have free will? If I borrow a million pounds, am I a millionaire?

Secretary of State praises Harris Federation

In his speech on 1st September, Secretary of State Michael Gove said of Harris   "Look at the academy schools set up by one of the most admirable men I know – Phil Harris – Lord Harris of Peckham. His academy in Peckham gets half its students to secure five good passes at GCSE including English and Maths.   When the school was run by the local authority only five per cent of children got those passes.   Every single one of the schools he takes over gets at least an additional twenty per cent or more young people to pass five good GCSEs compared to the record when the local authority ran it. Some get 40 per cent more. His schools in Merton and South Norwood get 50 per cent more. And some of these schools have only been in his control for a couple of years.   Phil is able to support state education so generously because of his success in business.   His firm Carpetright has brought jobs and opportunities, as well as high quality low cost flooring solutions, to thousands.   But many of you may also remember that Phil – and those who work for him – were, like many of us, victims of August’s outbreak of social disorder.      His flagship building in Tottenham was torched in an act of nihilistic destruction.   And it became, for a period, a symbol of London’s loss this summer. I found that tragic.   Because the buildings which tell the real story of what London’s young people are like, and are capable of, are the academies Phil runs which turn out hundreds of brilliant, talented, wholly admirable young men and women every summer.   And we have to make sure that the future for our young people is shaped by the values which make the Harris Academies such a success, not the values which ran riot on our streets this summer."   The full speech can be found at The Secretary of State singled Harris federation out for special praise today in his speech about the recent riots and unrest.   The full text of his speech can be found at : http://www.education.gov.uk/a00197684/michael-gove-to-the-durand-academy
