The Harris Federation

The Harris Federation is the leading large Multi Academy Trust in the country for both primary and secondary education. We have an established reputation in transforming education in London and an unrivalled track record in achieving success through rapid school improvement.

Closing the gap between young people from disadvantaged backgrounds and their peers has always been a core mission of the Harris Federation. We have transformed standards in schools that had, in some cases, failed for generations before joining the Harris Federation. Social mobility is the Holy Grail for the pupils we serve. The key to their futures is a high quality education.

We want every child in London to have the best possible education, enabling them to fulfil their potential and decide their own future.

We look for motivated support staff who are committed to helping us transform lives and who will share our belief that every child has the potential to do well.
