Independent research highlights Harris success

The success of Harris academies has been highlighted in three separate sets of independent research released this week.

DfE: Performance Tables for Multi Academy Trusts
We have been recognised as a ‘top performer’ in primary and secondary education in the Department for Education’s first set of performance tables comparing MATs in England.

We are one of just three MATs to be recognised as a top performer across both primary and secondary education. The others are Outwood Grange and Tapton.

Sutton Trust 'Chain Effects'

This is the third annual report in a series that reviews how well disadvantaged students achieve in academies.

The researchers find that as well as outperforming the national average for the attainment of disadvantaged students, Harris academies also outperform the London average which is higher. 

They highlight that the Harris Federation is one of ‘a handful of chains (that) have performed consistently and significantly above the mainstream average for attainment across the last three years’.

Education Policy Institute

In their first report, this new education think tank compares the performance of MATs and Local Authorities.

The Education Policy Institute says: ‘At primary level the Harris Federation is the highest performing school group in England – the improvement it has made is equivalent to pupils making around one and a half times more progress than average’.
