Yes. We aren’t helping them to write like Shakespeare. No-one acts like Burton. Though he was of course known primarily for his Hamlet and was successor to Olivier. Few of our kids get a leg up from Gielgud. We have to give it with English & Maths & employer engagement https://t.co/TBGyJr2I8S

One of the exhilarting things about being a small part in is watching huge success of the students we serve across all the schools not just doing the arts: but excelling. Here at 40% got a 9 in arts based subjects. https://t.co/zT0iUFkjon

The quote was an answer to a question. Context is the kind of child who wld otherwise not achieve b/c of their circs pre COVID compounded by lockdown. In that situation, it is better for the child to get fewer quals than take all subjects but in the end have little to show for it

5/5: And, as explained to the reporter, but not set out in her article, whether this happens at all will also depend on the Ofqual consultation on 2021 exams – eg whether they reduce the content or introduce choice in the syllabus.

4/5: The subjects they continue with would be based on what they want to do for their A Levels. Our pupils choose and pass languages and arts subjects at significantly higher rates than other pupils nationally. This won’t change. See https://t.co/ZH9H1MyHoM

3/5: The overwhelming majority will take the full range of subjects. But in EXCEPTIONAL CIRCUMSTANCES, it may be that a minority of pupils need to take fewer subjects in order to cover the content of the rest of their choices in the depth needed to pass.

05/07/20

2/5: The example we gave to the reporter of the kind of pupil who may take fewer subjects: someone badly persistently absent before lockdown, then who missed three months because of lockdown - and who cannot be expected to pass 8 or 9 GCSEs with just two terms of teaching.

05/07/20

1/5: The Sunday Times has amended its online article to clarify that a MINORITY of Harris pupils could take fewer GCSEs next year. In reality, this will be a tiny no. of pupils who haven't engaged with online learning and who cannot catch up in the 2 terms left before their exams

12th Harris Federation Conference

Thank you to the 4,500 staff who attended our 2019 conference at ExCel London. 

The video below captures some of the highlights from the event. You can search #ThinkHarris on Twitter to find out more. 

 

All 4,500 of us in the audience were impressed by Natalie and Oscar, Year 13 students at Harris Academy Beckenham, who so confidently compared the event. 

Another highlight was hearing the combined 150 voices of the Harris in Harmony choir – made up of students and staff from across the Federation – who sang uplifting rendition’s of Stevie Wonder’s You Can Feel it all Over and John Farnham’s You’re the Voice. 

Equally impressive were the hugely talented Dupri and Mica, Year 10 and 12 students from Harris Academy Peckham, who lit up the hall with their versions of Ain't no Mountain High Enough and New York, New York. 

There were over 60 training sessions for staff throughout the day, on wide-ranging topics including Shakespeare through the key stages, the importance of enquiry within History and a session led by author Mark Enser on ‘making every Geography lesson count’. Thank you to all the staff and special guests who facilitated these engaging and informative CPD sessions. 

The conference is an annual opportunity to celebrate the achievements of our talented teachers and support staff through the Harris Transforming Lives Awards. Congratulations to this year’s winners.
