GCSEs 2016: Closing the gap

Closing the gap between students from disadvantaged backgrounds and other students has been a core mission of the Harris Federation.

Our success to date has been noted in successive Sutton Trust research reports
Hbp75Our provisional Progress 8 calculations indicate that Harris academies have been successful in progressing this in 2016. Indications are that the average Progress 8 score for all students across the Harris Federation in 2016 is +0.63. For disadvantaged students, it is +0.55.
 
In 2015, average Progress 8 for disadvantaged students in England was -0.40, compared to +0.12 for other students.
 
So, whereas in England the progress made by disadvantaged students at school is below average at Harris it is higher than average. And the data also shows that we are continuing to close the gap between disadvantaged students and everybody else.
