Finn’s mum came to nursery yesterday to read a story to the children. The children were very excited (especially Finn) and loved listening to the story. We are always delighted to have parents share stories in nursery. If you would like to read a story come to the nursery staff. https://t.co/cG0Vo7RDGS

Who would ever have imagined this many South London state school kids going to Oxbridge three decades ago under ILEA. Thousands of lives changed by Lord Harris' energy and drive and the academy system... https://t.co/nZOGoG0u6l

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?

Executive Principal, Harris Academy Peckham and Principal, Harris Academy Beckenham

I came into teaching inspired by a love for English Literature and an outstanding teacher who guided me through GCSE and A Level.

My career started in local authority state comprehensives, rising from NQT to assistant principal over seven years, before joining the Harris Federation – where I have now worked for ten years.

My time with Harris has been hugely rewarding. I have been given endless opportunities to improve my professional skills and have met some wonderful colleagues, with whom I have felt privileged to collaborate. It is exceedingly challenging, and expectations are very high, but the satisfaction I have felt through successes in my various roles have made every minute worth it.

The most positive aspect of working for the Harris Federation is the way the team works together. There is always somebody available for advice, guidance and encouragement, with no issue being too trivial. The support network is quite phenomenal, and this has not lessened despite our rapid growth as a Federation.

The academies I lead are very different, but both have enormous strengths. Beckenham is a very special Academy: a true community comprehensive serving its local residents. It has improved year on year and is increasingly becoming the school of choice in our area. Our staff and students are remarkable and our ethos of scientific enterprise as well as our relentless focus on WORD (Writing, Oracy and Reading Development) makes it a thriving, dynamic place of learning.

Harris Academy Peckham sits at the heart of its richly multi-cultural community and provides an excellent standard of education and personal development for every student. Our ethos of LEAP (Leadership Enquiry Aspiration Perseverance) underpins all of our key policies and creates a clear and powerful vision for our students and staff. An exciting place to work, with the opportunity to make a truly significant difference to young people’s life chances, Harris Academy Peckham is a place of ambition and aspiration through and through.

If you are applying for a position at either academy, you need to have optimism and a ‘can-do attitude’ among your core values – they are fast-paced, challenging places of learning. You will need to be flexible to the needs of our students and dedicate yourself to every aspect of academy life.

If you possess these qualities, the Harris Federation is a truly exceptional place to build your teaching career. There is nowhere better to receive exemplary professional development and to work with experts across every aspect of the educational realm.

My top three qualities when looking for a teacher:

  • Subject expertise
  • A ‘can-do’ approach
  • The ability to communicate effectively and accurately
