Harris Academies rank in top 56 schools nationally

New data from the government’s Department for Education has ranked Harris Academy South Norwood and Harris Academy Chafford Hundred amongst the top 56 schools in the country for academic achievement. The data compares schools’ 2012 GCSE results with those of others from across the country that have an equivalent student intake.  Both Harris Academy South Norwood and Harris Academy Chafford Hundred achieved results that were better than any other school in their group. The Minister of State for Schools, David Laws MP, wrote to both Academies to congratulate them for ranking number one, saying: “First, you were ranked number one in your table. Second, over 10 per cent more of your pupils achieved five good GCSEs, including English and maths, than is typical of a school with your intake. “This is a fantastic achievement that you should be very proud of.” The proportion of Chafford Hundred students achieving five or more good GCSEs including English and maths was 15 percentage points higher than the next best school in its category, whilst South Norwood’s results were 12 points better than the school that placed second in its group. There was more good news for the Harris Federation as the Eltham Foundation School – now Harris Academy Greenwich – also topped its table.  The school came under Harris leadership a year before it formally joined the Federation in 2012 and has made great strides to become one of the most improved schools in the country.

Double honour for Harris Academy South Norwood

Double honour for Harris Academy South Norwood David Laws MP, Minister of State for Schools, has congratulated Harris Academy South Norwood on its excellent academic performance.  The Schools Minister wrote to the Academy to say that it is ranked number one in a table of schools with near identical intakes.  It is one of only 56 secondary schools in the country to achieve this accolade. Separately, and in recognition of its academic achievements, the Academy has been asked by London Mayor Boris Johnson to join his new Gold Club scheme for London schools which achieve excellence.  The Mayor will present a Gold Club award to the school later this year.   In a letter to the Academy, the Mayor said:  “By joining the London Schools’ Gold Club, your school will be recognised as a leader in challenging low aspiration and under-achievement.  We also ask that you share your good practice to help other schools.” This summer 78% of students at the Academy achieved five or more A*-C GCSE grades including English and maths.  As a member of the Harris Federation Sixth Form, it also sent Sixth Formers to top Russell Group universities. Mr Sam Hainey, Principal of the Academy, said: “It is incredibly gratifying for all of us who lead and teach at this Academy to know that students are making so much academic progress here.  “No matter what a child’s starting point when they join at age-11, our aim is to make sure that every day of their education counts towards a happy and successful future.  We have a fantastic community of students, parents and staff and I am delighted that their achievements have been recognised at such a high level by the Mayor and the Government.”  Sir Dan Moynihan, CEO of the Harris Federation, said: “The Academy replaced a struggling school and in the six years since then it has been totally transformed – not just in terms of its academic results, but also because of its happy, caring ethos in which students always come first.  I would like to thank and congratulate all those who work and study there for their hard work and success.”
