Had a chat about school governance this morning and realised I’m in my 15th year of being a governor! Time flies but it’s such a rewarding experience if you can find the time to be involved in your local school(s).

Secondary League Tables Roundup

In a tough year for GCSE figures nationally, the Harris Secondary Academies produced a number of notable successes. In particular, schools across the Federation continued their drive to offer the most academic qualifications and ensure achievement for all students.

Within the Harris Federation, achievement of students eligible for the pupil premium was above the national average for all schools. Students who speak English as an additional language were supported to match the performance of all our students, outdoing the national average for EAL students achieving five or more good GCSEs including English and maths by more than 10 percentage points.

When equivalent qualifications such as BTECs are excluded, 62% of Harris students are achieving five or more A*-C grades including English and maths. This is a rise of more than a percentage point on last year and comfortably surpasses the national average of 53%.

In terms of individual successes:

Harris Academy Chafford Hundred topped the table for Thurrock and re-affirmed its place as a leading school locally and nationally. 93% of students gained five or more good GCSEs including English and maths. 87% of those eligible for the pupil premium achieved the same measure.

At Harris Boys’ Academy East Dulwich, which received its first results, 71% of students gained five or more good GCSEs including English and maths. The Academy’s EBacc proportion is already better than the national average.

Harris Academy Purley placed second amongst state-funded schools in Croydon. 79% of the Academy’s students are achieving five or more A*-C grades including English and maths, whilst the percentage achieving the EBacc more than trebled.

Also in Croydon, the proportion of students meeting the EBacc measure at Harris City Academy Crystal Palace was once again more than double the national average, at 55%.

There was a substantial rise of 14 percentage points in the headline measure for Harris Academy Upper Norwood, which joined the Harris Federation just over a year ago. The proportion of students achieving the EBacc at sister school Harris Academy South Norwood rose to 35%.

Harris Academy Falconwood’s results improved by three percentage points in a year when the school was once again rated ‘Outstanding’.

There were also strong climbs (of at least nine percentage points) in the proportion of students meeting the EBacc measure at Harris Academy Beckenham, Harris Academy Bromley, Harris Academy Morden and Harris Girls’ Academy East Dulwich.
