The Ockendon Academy set to join the Harris Federation

The Ockendon Academy will join the Harris Federation in September 2019.

The school is already an academy, having converted in 2011. By joining the Harris Federation it will benefit from a great deal of focused support as it seeks to transform the education on offer to students.
The Harris Federation has been involved in education in Thurrock since 2011 when Harris Academy Chafford Hundred opened. It also runs Harris Academy Riverside, Harris Primary Academy Mayflower and Harris Primary Academy Chafford Hundred. There are nearly four applications from families for every place at a Harris academy in Thurrock.

Ms Jo Rainey, Principal of The Ockendon Academy, said:

“The governors of The Ockendon Academy and I are thrilled to be joining the Harris Federation and know this decision will benefit our students, their families and our staff. The Harris family of academies have an established reputation of excellence and the distinguished expectations and achievements across the entire Federation are unrivalled.  As an academy that is rapidly improving, joining the Harris Federation will propel us into a new dimension.”

Sir Dan Moynihan, Chief Executive of the Harris Federation, said: 

“With a long-standing and successful commitment to families in Thurrock, we are delighted that The Ockendon Academy has chosen to join the Harris Federation. We want to build on everything that is already great about the academy so that every student benefits from a truly excellent education.”

Jackie Doyle-Price, MP for Thurrock, said:

"I am so pleased for the students and staff of The Ockendon Academy and know that they have an extremely bright future as part of the Harris Federation. Through the four other schools they run in Thurrock, all of which are highly successful, Harris have demonstrated that they provide an outstanding education at their academies. I applaud the decision of governors at The Ockendon Academy to join such a successful organisation.  I am truly thankful for the commitment that Harris shows to the education of our children here in Thurrock."
