Would you like to shape the future of one of our thriving academies as a Governor?
Outstanding local governance is vital to the success of Harris academies, with numerous Ofsted reports paying tribute to the role played by the governors of our academies. Harris Federation governing bodies carry much of the responsibility for setting the strategic direction of our academies and for monitoring all aspects of performance.
We are particularly interested to hear from those who would be interested in a governor post in Orpington.
We were recognised as a ‘top performer’ in primary and secondary education in the Department for Education’s first set of performance tables comparing academy trusts in England. Three consecutive research reports by the Sutton Trust, a social mobility think tank, have highlighted that the Harris Federation is among ‘the best academy chains (for) having a transformational impact on pupils’ life chances.’ And data experts Watchsted rank us first out of 26 sponsors for improving Ofsted outcomes in schools.
Social mobility is the Holy Grail for the pupils we serve. The key to their futures is a high quality education. Our governors shape and guide our schools and are vital to their success. Being a governor is a voluntary position and we are incredibly grateful to the highly skilled group of people who commit their time and expertise to our academies.
If you want to become a governor and if you share our aspirations for our children and teenagers, we would be delighted to hear from you.
If you are interested in becoming a Harris governor, please apply to complete a short registration form, or if you just want more information, please contact Harry Bond, Head of Talent on firstname.lastname@example.org
