Education Performance

 

Our exceptional 2017 Key Stage 2 and Key Stage 4 performance – a snapshot

Primary 2017 - Key Stage 2

Harris avg.

National avg. (2017)

Proportion of pupils at expected standard 76% 61%
 
Harris students outperform national expectations by 15% in the combined Reading, Writing and Mathematics tests.
  • 81% of our students met the expected standard in Reading. (10% higher than national average).
  • 87% of our students met the expected standard in Writing. (11% higher than national average).
  • 89% of our students met the expected standard in Mathematics. (14% higher than national average).
  • 90% of our students met the expected standard in Spelling Punctuation and Grammar. (13% higher than national average).
  • Overall, Harris Primary academies are in the top 25% in the country for progress.
  • Our disadvantaged students continued to achieve exceptional results, to further emphasise our commitment that all students should achieve their very best whatever their background. 
 
70% of our students eligible for Pupil Premium achieved the expected standards in Reading, Writing and Mathematics at Key Stage 2. (9% above ALL students nationally).
     
     
     

Secondary 2017 - Key Stage 4

Harris avg.

National avg. (2017)

Progress 8 +0.60 -0.03
Attainment 8 5.10 4.85
Proportion of students achieving Basics 69% 59%
Proportion of students achieving EBacc 35% 23%
 
 
Almost 2,700 students across 19 Harris Federation secondary academies received some exceptional Key Stage 4 results in 2017.
 
With the introduction of the new 9-1 grade methodology replacing the conventional A*- G grades in
English and mathematics, our academies continue to enjoy extraordinary success.
 
Over 69% of all students achieved a grade 4-9 (a standard pass) in both English and mathematics combined.
 
Even using the new tougher government measurement 5 (a good pass), 46% of our students achieved both English and mathematics combined, which is well above the national average.
 
Additionally, 248 students achieved English and mathematics grades at the new ‘super grade’ of 9.
 
In 2017, the Harris Federation EBACC score (grade C, or the new grade 4, and above) is over 35%, which is a year-on-year increase for our academies and 12% above the national average for 2016.
 

Progress

Progress 8 is a government measure which aims to capture the progress a pupil makes from the end of primary school to the end of secondary school. It is a value added measure, which means pupils' results are compared to the achievements of other pupils with the same prior attainment. 

As of September 2017 the group Progress 8 score is 0.6 compared to 0.47 last year
(national average is - 0.3).

 

The majority of Harris academies inspected by Ofsted are ‘outstanding’ and the others are all ‘good’: 

  • 24 of our inspected academies are ‘outstanding’ and 11 are ‘good’.
  • Our academies are three times more likely to be ‘outstanding’ than schools nationally.
  • Of 27 academies that joined us because they had previously been considered to be failing, 18 have become ‘outstanding’ and the other nine are ‘good’. 

 

In their 2016 performance measures for Multi Academy Trusts (MATs), the Department for Education said that: 

  • At Secondary, our Progress 8 score was the highest of any large MAT.
  • Our Primary academies were 'significantly above average' in all three performance measures: we are one of just six out of 95 MATs to have achieved this.

 

Closing the gap between groups of pupils is part of the core mission of the Harris Federation:

  • Consecutive reports by academic researchers at social mobility charity the Sutton Trust have concluded that we are among the top academy trusts for improving the prospects of disadvantaged pupils. 
  • Lower ability pupils are five times more likely to achieve the English Baccalaureate with the Harris Federation than they are nationally.
  • Not only do disadvantaged children in Harris primary academies outperform disadvantaged children nationally, they also outperform non-disadvantaged children.

 

Harris secondary pupils are achieving success based on a core curriculum of academic subjects: 

  • In 2010, the average English Baccalaureate score for the secondary schools (including predecessor schools) that now make up the Harris Federation was just 7%. This was five times higher in 2017, at 35%. The national average is 23%. 

 

Sixth Form Success 2017

  • In 2017, over 50% of Harris Westminster sixth formers went on to study at Russell Group Universities, with 16 students going to Oxford or Cambridge and 8 into medicine.
  • 16% of Harris sixth formers won places at Russell Group universities in 2016, compared to 12% nationally.
