Hammersmith Academy www.hammersmithacademy.org As a Fellow of the Worshipful Company of Information Technologists I joined our efforts to raise £1m for the Academy. The school opened in 2011 and was rated Good/Outstanding in an early Ofsted inspection.

In the recently published THES top 300 global universities Caltech was ranked 1, MIT 6, ETF Zurich 13, Georgia Tech 27, HK Uni of Sc and Tech 51 and Korea Advanced Institute of Sc & Tech 52. UK universities in the top 50 were: Oxford 3 Cambridge 5 Imperial 9 UCL 22 LSE 34 King's 40 London had four in the top 50 but we had no national Tech university. If I become involved in the Mayor's race, I will fight for a London Institute of Technology.
