'School praise is well deserved'
7:10am Saturday 5th October 2013 in News
THE MP for Thurrock has congratulated Harris Academy after it received a letter from the Government’s schools minister.
The Gazette reported last week the minister had written to the Chafford Hundred school after it was determined it was one of the best performing in the UK.
Jackie Doyle-Price introduced the Harris Federation to the school, which has come on leaps and bounds in recent years.
The Department for Education sorted schools into new rankings based on 2012 GCSE results and the profile of pupils.
Ms Doyle-Price said: “The academy deserves the congratulation. It has really improved its performance in recent years, in common I might add with most of our secondary schools here in Thurrock.
“I am delighted Harris is now a firmly established part of our education community.
“When I introduced Harris to Thurrock I knew it would foster the highest quality and I know its commitment to supporting the children of Chafford is very real.”
