About Harris Academy Chafford Hundred

The Harris Federation has two Teaching School Hubs, that are part of wider network of eighty-seven Teaching School Hubs to be designated by the DfE nationally.

Harris City Academy Crystal Palace Teaching School Hub is based in South London, and oversees the Croydon, Sutton and Epsom and Ewell region.
Harris Academy Chafford Hundred Teaching School Hub is based in South Essex, and oversees the Basildon, Brentwood, Castle Point, Maldon, Rochford, Southend and Thurrock.
Teaching School Hubs are centres of excellence in professional development for the education workforce. Our purpose is to provide high quality professional learning pathways which develop exceptional educators to enable all children and young people to achieve their potential and provide them with real life chances.

To achieve this aim, we work closely with the Department for Education and other partners such as Curriculum Hubs and Research Schools to deliver on the golden thread of professional development for all schools in our designated region. We will ensure that teachers are able to have clear professional development pathways and continue to grow and flourish. Teachers will be able to access the Hub at any point in their careers.

Evidence informed practice tells us that that the quality of teaching is the single biggest variable in student achievement, outside the students themselves, and it is also the variable most susceptible to the impact of good or poor leadership.
