Schools Minister visits Harris Academy Purley

Schools Minister visits Harris Academy Purley Nick Gibb MP, the Minister of State for Schools, visited Harris Academy Purley this morning. During the visit, Mr Gibb toured the Summer School we have been running for 50 of the Year 7 students joining us in September.   The purpose of the Summer School is to ease the transition between primary and secondary school and ensure our new students are fully able to hit the ground running from day one of the autumn term. Mr Gibb was able to see activities including the ‘Egg Extravaganza’, a project in which students worked in teams to design a structure that would support the weight of an egg!  Carol-Anne Alcock, Principal of the Academy, said: “It was an honour to welcome the Schools Minister to our Summer School.  “Although children at the Summer School have been constantly learning, we have made all the activities fun and exciting.  The students participating say that they are thoroughly enjoying themselves and feel much better prepared for Year 7.” Schools Minister Nick Gibb said: “The transition from primary to secondary school can be a nerve-wracking experience for young children. Helping children at this significant moment in their lives is why we established the summer schools programme. “I was very impressed with the Harris Academy Purley Summer School – their activities were varied, interesting and hugely educational, delivered by enthusiastic teachers. All the children were enjoying the activities and making new friends.”

Evening Standard Article

The chain of London schools run by carpet tycoon Lord Harris has bucked the national trend for declining results — by making students compete with each other and forming links with leading universities. The Harris Federation, which has 12 secondaries across the capital, saw a three per cent increase in students gaining at least five good grades at GCSE. Lord Harris of Peckham said the schools’ house system, and links with Russell Group of universities, were behind the success. The academy sponsor and chairman of Carpetright said: “It is not only about exam results. We have a house system so pupils can compete against each other, and against other Harris schools. It gives students a reason to do well”. The house system places pupils in groups which compete with each other in sports and academic competitions. Sir Dan Moynihan, chief executive of the Harris Federation said: “I don’t understand when people say houses are old fashioned. They help to raise standards.” At the Crystal Palace academy all but one student achieved 5 A-C grades including English and maths. Mae Semakula-Buuza, 16, got eight A*s and 3 As and plans to study chemistry, maths, phyiscs and history at A-level. She said: “I feel really happy. I was having nightmares last night about not getting good results. I have really done it for my parents.” Farhim Yasmin, 16, gained 10 A*s, an A and a B, and wants to be a chemical engineer. She said: “It feels great. I might as well embrace the fact I’m one of those geeky people that really likes chemistry.” Tom Chandy said he was heading to Reading Festival to celebrate seven A*s, four As and a B.He added: “I want to be a doctor. I have already been on an introductory course about neurosurgery.” Click here to view the article.

GCSE Results

Harris Federation: GCSE results 2012 Percentage of students with five good passes including English and Maths: The Headlines Average improvement of 3% points since 2011, and 33% points since opening Near perfect result at our longest established school, Harris City Academy Crystal Palace – 99.4% Vast improvements in two of our newest Academies, both open for a year – Harris Academy Beckenham has gone from 36% to 52% and Harris Academy Bromley from 53% to 66% Results at Harris Academy Falconwood and Harris Academy South Norwood  have now quadrupled since opening All but 3 Academies have improved their results this year Three years early, every Harris Academy has met and surpassed the Government’s 2015 floor target of 50%. GCSE improvements across the Harris Federation have been sustained and built upon this year, with an average increase of three percentage points in the proportion of students gaining five or more A* - C passes including English and Maths. This brings the average improvement in our academies since opening to 33 percentage points, compared to the scores achieved under the LEA in each of the predecessor schools to our Academies. In the time that it has been open, Harris City Academy Crystal Palace has increased its results from nine to 99%.  Harris Academy Peckham has gone from five to 55%.    Other notable achievements are: Harris Academy Falconwood has improved from 57% in 2011 to 68% in 2012.  The summer before the Academy opened in 2008, just 17% of students achieved five good passes including maths and English – the achievement rate has quadrupled in the four years that have followed.  Harris Academy South Norwood has hit the 80% threshold for the first time, up from 75% last summer and 20% in the predecessor school’s last set of results. Our two new Academies in the London Borough of Bromley, both of which replaced struggling schools, have performed outstandingly.  Harris Academy Beckenham has increased its achievement rate from 36% to 52% and Harris Academy Bromley from 53% to 66%.   Commenting the results, Sir Dan Moynihan, CEO of the Harris Federation said: “I would like to congratulate all of our students, teachers and Principals on another year of strong results.  All of our Academies have performed very strongly against their predecessor schools, with an average improvement of 33 percentage points since opening. “Two of our Academies have quadrupled their results since opening and a further two are performing at least ten times better – Harris City Academy Crystal Palace, which has gone from nine per cent to 99% and Harris Academy Peckham which has gone from five per cent to 55%.”

A Level Results 2012

Results are in for the Harris Federation Sixth Form, which combines six of our Academies, and we are very pleased with them. We had over 400 A Level students this year, making this our largest ever cohort.  On average, each student scored slightly higher than A, A, B.  The average point score per student was 770. We are proud of all our students’ achievements – their grades are the culmination of seven years’ hard work in secondary school.  Star performers from across the Federation who deserve a special mention are: Shahnaz Yasmin A*A A A Omar Bello A*A A A Alfred Corbin A*A*A B Daniel Wynter A*A A B Milan Joshi A*A A B Manifagha Owugha A*A A B Nina Shah A*A A B Lydia Anderson-Monfries A*A A Louis Austin A A A Lucy Pearce A A A Rebecca Wilson A*A*B Ryan Osman A A A B Katie Lee-Sang A*A B Licia Johnson A*A A B Saeed Azizi A*A*A B By having a federated Sixth Form, we are able to offer a very wide variety of subjects for students to choose from and inspirational teaching in each one of these.   There is also an excellent set of joint-programmes with organisations such as the British Medical Association, King’s College London and two Oxbridge colleges.  The Harris Federation Sixth Form provides guided study support before and after school and small tutorials with specialist staff to make sure that Sixth Formers achieve excellently and are fully prepared for their future education and career choices. Sir Dan Moynihan, Chief Executive of the Harris Federation, said: “This year, we are sending students to Imperial as well as St George’s to read Medicine, King’s for Pharmacy, Bristol for Maths, Warwick for Law, Durham for Politics and UCL for History.  The achievements of our Sixth Formers reflect the high expectations we have for every single young person who walks through our doors. I know how proud Lord Harris, the Federation and all our teachers were today to see our students collect their results.  We wish our students the very best and are very much looking forward to seeing them build successful careers and happy futures.”
