Our Vision and Values
Since its inception, the Harris Federation has been dedicated to closing the educational gap between young people from disadvantaged backgrounds and their peers.
Our vision is one where every child, no matter what their background has the same access to education, the same opportunities for further education and the same potential to succeed.
We are always looking for teaching and non-teaching staff who can work collaboratively, support one another and help us in our mission to transform education in London.Read more about our Vision and Values
