THURROCK MP Jackie Doyle-Price has expressed her delight at the news that Chafford Hundred campus is to become a Harris Academy.
Ms Doyle-Price said: “It is also fantastic that Lord Harris is bringing the expertise he has built in South London to Thurrock. His Carpetright HQ is here in Purfleet.
“Lord Harris is such an enthusiastic supporter of good education it was obvious to want to involve him in Thurrock’s schools. When Chris told me he was considering academy status last year I could see that this was a partnership which might work for the school and put Lord Harris in touch.
“I am pleased to have helped and that it has led to this.”
