We are very proud of how our students have risen to the challenge of home-learning. From attending live lessons, submitting excellent work on Show My Homework or returning work packs filled with brilliant ideas. Here are some examples of their excellent work https://t.co/9FrNW4UuXY

From classrooms to family courts, every part of the structure that protects children from harm has been upended. What has happened behind closed doors, asks ? https://t.co/mvKHYUUH53 https://t.co/NuV8pAa8KB

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

Welcome from the Chief Executive

The Harris Federation is a not-for-profit charity with over 25 years’ experience of education in and around London. We have built our reputation on a family of Academies that, across the board, are setting standards of excellence and fulfilling high expectations.

I first began working for the Harris Federation in 2004, as Principal of Harris City Academy Crystal Palace - or Harris CTC as it was then known. Since then, the Federation has grown to include 48 primary and secondary academies, 36,000 pupils and over 4,000 staff. We educate 1 in every 41 pupils in London with a £230 million annual budget. 

Harris Federation is the top performing large multi-academy trust.

Each year as we have grown, the expectations we’ve set ourselves have increased. 73% of all of our Academies inspected so far have been graded as Outstanding (compared to 21% nationally). 78% of our Secondary Academies have been judged as Outstanding so far.

In Primary education our Academies have been judged to be the top performing group of schools compared to all other local authorities and academy trusts in England, in 2015, 2016 and 2017 by the highly respected Education Policy Institute.

At Secondary Harris Federation has regularly been named as one of the top performing groups in the country for disadvantaged pupils by the Sutton Trust charity.

Harris Academies are popular with parents, on average they receive four applications for every place available. Improvement in our GCSE and SAT results has been substantial for every Harris Academy since opening.  The success we have had so far is down to the talented and highly dedicated support staff, teachers, leaders and governors at our Academies. We are equally grateful to our students and parents for their extensive support and commitment.

Thank you for taking the time to view our website. Any parents with further questions, or who would like to visit one of our Academies, are warmly encouraged to contact us.

Sir Daniel Moynihan
Chief Executive
