Harris Academies
All Academies in our Federation aim to transform the lives of the students they serve by bringing about rapid improvement in examination results, personal development and aspiration.

Harris Federation


Our academy is a member of the Harris Federation, a group of 54 primary and secondary academies in and around London educating some 38,000 young people. The Harris Federation Teaching School Alliance enables us not only to train and develop teachers and leaders in our own academies, but also to do so for other schools.

Each academy is led and run by its Principal and other senior leaders: we are deliberately a federation rather than a chain.  What unites us is a culture that ensures the children and teenagers in our schools get an excellent education within a happy, caring and supportive environment.

As a result of this, the vast majority of Harris academies so far to have been inspected by Ofsted have been rated either ‘good’ or ‘outstanding’ with the vast majority being Outstanding.  Many of these academies replaced schools previously considered to have been failing.

The Harris Federation has been recognised as a top performer by education researchers at the Department for Education, Sutton Trust and Education Policy Institute as well as Watchsted and PwC.

We are a not-for-profit charity created by Lord Harris of Peckham. He and his family take an active interest in every Harris academy, supporting us financially and with their time.
