New Performance tables show students make more progress at Harris Academies
New figures released today by the Department for Education indicate that the Harris Federation is the top performing multi-academy trust for pupil progress in England yet again.
The Harris Federation’s overall Progress 8 score showed an increase on the previous year’s performance up from
+0.47 to +0.59 this year.
Three Harris academies – Battersea, Morden and Bromley – were among only 33 schools that achieved scores above 1, meaning students achieved, on average, more than a grade higher in their best 8 subjects than at schools with a comparable intake. This puts them in the top 1% of all secondary schools for progress.
Final data will be published by the Department in January 2018.
Harris Federation Chief Executive, Sir Dan Moynihan, said:
“Today’s provisional progress figures are our best yet. A score of + 0.59 shows that students at Harris Federation academies achieve better outcomes than expected, compared to other schools, with three of our academies are among the very top 1% in the country for progress.
“These fantastic results are down to the high expectations we have for every student – whatever their starting point – and our constant drive to deliver consistent, high-quality teaching in every lesson and across every subject.
“Our aim is to help our students achieve their very best: these figures show that is happening in our academies.”
