Hereditary principle kicking in at Harris Federation

England’s second-largest academy chain has underlined its position as in the control of a single family, as the wife and a son of its “sponsor” have joined him at the highest level of its governance system.

Lord Harris, the Tory peer and donor and founder of the company Carpetright, after whom the Harris Federation is named, has been joined as a “member” of the 50-school, London-based chain by his wife, Lady Pauline Harris, and his son, Peter Harris, its website confirms. They are the only three members.
