Lord Harris of Peckham

Honorary Fellow

Educated at Streatham Grammar School, Lord Harris had to cut short his education at 15 after the death of his father in order to take over the running of the family business of three carpet shops. He went on to set up Carpetright, now a public company with over 600 branches across the UK and the rest of Europe.  Lord Harris has been a Conservative peer since 1996.

Lord Harris is the sponsor and chairman of the Harris Federation, which runs over 30 academies in and around South London.
