League Tables Success for Harris Academies

The Department for Education’s 2016 league tables were released on 21 January, with the data showcasing the excellent performance of Harris academies relative to schools with similar characteristics nationally.

All state-funded, mainstream secondary schools are grouped into tables along with 54 other schools which have a student intake with similar levels of attainment from primary school. They are then ranked from 1-55 based on their GCSE results.

Of the 16 Harris secondary academies with GCSE results, seven were ranked within the top five schools in their table. 13 were ranked within the top 15 schools in their table and the average ranking of Harris academies was eighth.

Particular highlights included:

Harris Girls’ Academy East Dulwich (1st in its table)

With students achieving their best ever set of GCSEs in summer 2015, Harris Girls’ Academy East Dulwich tops its Similar Schools table and is the most improved school in the whole of Southwark. Its Progress 8* score is +0.90.

Harris Academy Battersea (2nd)

In its first year as part of the Harris Federation, GCSE results at Harris Battersea rose by a huge 22 points. It placed second in its Similar Schools table and is the most improved school in Wandsworth, achieving a Progress 8 score of +0.84.

Harris Boys’ Academy East Dulwich (2nd)

Like its sister school, Harris Boys’ Academy East Dulwich performed excellently to place second in its table and earn a Progress 8 score of +0.48.

Harris Academy Chafford Hundred (2nd)

Harris Chafford Hundred is the top performing school in Thurrock and also compares favourably to similar schools nationally, being ranked second. Its Progress 8 score is +0.81.

Harris Academy Merton (3rd)

Students at Harris Academy Merton secured a rank of third for their school, also earning a Progress 8 score of +0.44.

Harris Academy Bromley (4th)

As well as placing fourth in its Similar Schools table, Harris Academy Bromley was one of just 327 schools in England to opt into the Progress 8 tables a year early. It achieved a score of +0.73 which is 19th highest of those 327 schools.

Harris Academy Beckenham (4th)

Also in Bromley, Harris Academy Beckenham achieved its best ever GCSE results and was ranked fourth in its table, as well as earning a Progress 8 score of +0.64.

Harris Academy Greenwich (6th)

As well as placing sixth in its table, Harris Academy Greenwich achieved a Progress 8 score of +0.62.

Harris Academy Purley (6th)

Regularly a strong performer in terms of the progress made by students, Harris Academy Purley continued this track record by ranking sixth.

Harris Academy Falconwood (7th)

After achieving its best ever GCSE results, Harris Academy Falconwood is one of the most improved schools in Bexley and ranks seventh in its Similar Schools table.

No Harris academy was ranked below 25th in its Similar Schools table, with other strong performers in the top 15 including:

  • Harris Academy Bermondsey (11th)
  • Harris Academy Upper Norwood (12th)
  • Harris City Academy Crystal Palace (13th)

Commenting on the league tables, Chief Executive Sir Dan Moynihan said:

“It is always gratifying to see our schools perform well, but particularly so in measures such as the Similar Schools tables which offer a useful benchmark on a national scale.

“They show that our students are upsetting the odds with us to perform beyond what might be expected of them after primary school. This is mirrored in the excellent Progress 8 scores throughout the Federation, with students making outstanding progress across the curriculum.”

*Progress 8 measures the progress of students during their time at secondary school across 8 key subjects, compared to similar students nationally. The national average for all schools will be 0, with positive scores being above average and negative scores below average. For example, Harris Academy Bromley’s score of +0.73 means that in each of the 8 subjects that make up Progress 8, students scored on average nearly ¾ of a grade better than children with similar primary scores elsewhere.
