Record GCSE Results 2011

The Harris Federation is recording an average improvement of 13 percentage points across its family of Academies in the proportion of students achieving five good GCSE passes including English and Maths.

Significantly, and for the first year ever, all Harris Academies have scored 50% or higher for the proportion of students gaining five good passes including English and maths.  This means that they have all achieved the national floor target for 2015 four years early.

The largest single improvement in the group was at Harris Academy Merton, where there has been a 26 percentage point increase in the proportion of students gaining 5 good passes including English and Maths.   The score was 75% this year, up from 49% in 2010 and 23% at the school the Academy replaced in 2006.

Other highlights are:

  • An improvement of 17 percentage points at Harris Academy Peckham, where the proportion of students gaining five good passes including English and maths has risen from 33% in 2010 to 50% this year - Ofsted 2011 'A Good School'
  • With 61% of students gaining 5 good passes including English and maths, Harris Academy Purley has almost doubled its results within two years of opening.
  • With 74% of students gaining 5 good passes including English and maths, Harris Academy South Norwood has almost quadrupled its results within four years of opening.

Of the eight Harris Academies receiving GCSE results this year, five have been rated as ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted and a further two have been judged to be making “Outstanding Progress”.

The Federation currently comprises nine Academies and has four new schools joining in September, bringing the group to 13 Academies in total.

Commenting on the results, Dr Dan Moynihan, Chief Executive of the Harris Federation said:

“I would like to congratulate all of our Principals, their staff and their students on this amazing set of results." 

"By combining the best of modern teaching with an emphasis on the traditional values of hard work and good behaviour, our Academies have all come from extremely low starting points to achieve a set of results that we can all be very proud of."

“Across the Harris Federation, we are proving the positive difference that academies can make. We set no ceiling for our ambition and believe that each school that we take on has the potential to be up there with the best in the country.”
