Yes. We aren’t helping them to write like Shakespeare. No-one acts like Burton. Though he was of course known primarily for his Hamlet and was successor to Olivier. Few of our kids get a leg up from Gielgud. We have to give it with English & Maths & employer engagement https://t.co/TBGyJr2I8S

One of the exhilarting things about being a small part in is watching huge success of the students we serve across all the schools not just doing the arts: but excelling. Here at 40% got a 9 in arts based subjects. https://t.co/zT0iUFkjon

The quote was an answer to a question. Context is the kind of child who wld otherwise not achieve b/c of their circs pre COVID compounded by lockdown. In that situation, it is better for the child to get fewer quals than take all subjects but in the end have little to show for it

5/5: And, as explained to the reporter, but not set out in her article, whether this happens at all will also depend on the Ofqual consultation on 2021 exams – eg whether they reduce the content or introduce choice in the syllabus.

4/5: The subjects they continue with would be based on what they want to do for their A Levels. Our pupils choose and pass languages and arts subjects at significantly higher rates than other pupils nationally. This won’t change. See https://t.co/ZH9H1MyHoM

05/07/20

3/5: The overwhelming majority will take the full range of subjects. But in EXCEPTIONAL CIRCUMSTANCES, it may be that a minority of pupils need to take fewer subjects in order to cover the content of the rest of their choices in the depth needed to pass.

05/07/20

2/5: The example we gave to the reporter of the kind of pupil who may take fewer subjects: someone badly persistently absent before lockdown, then who missed three months because of lockdown - and who cannot be expected to pass 8 or 9 GCSEs with just two terms of teaching.

05/07/20

1/5: The Sunday Times has amended its online article to clarify that a MINORITY of Harris pupils could take fewer GCSEs next year. In reality, this will be a tiny no. of pupils who haven't engaged with online learning and who cannot catch up in the 2 terms left before their exams

A Level results 2019

Congratulations to all 2,000 students collecting A Level results at our academies today.

2019 was another very successful year for sixth formers in the Harris Federation.

At the Harris Federation Sixth Form, which encompasses ten of our academies, many students have been placed at top universities including Oxford, UCL and Warwick.   We’re also proud to have students going on to an array of the most competitive apprenticeships including Accenture, Capgemini and IBM.

Harris Westminster Sixth Form, which prioritises academically able students from the most disadvantaged backgrounds, had its best year yet.  27% of students achieved A*AA or better including 8 with 4A* and a further 7 with 3A*. 24 students met their offer to go to Oxford or Cambridge, one of whom has taken up the opportunity to go to Princeton in the USA. Others have secured places at some of the most competitive courses in the UK, including at UCL, LSE and Warwick. 19 students from Harris Westminster are going on to study Medicine or Dentistry - congratulations to all.

Elsewhere in the Harris Federation, seven students met their Oxbridge offers with an eighth who has a place on an Oxford Foundation Course.  At least half of these students are the first generation in their family to go to university and all have beaten extraordinary odds to secure their places. They will all be studying subjects they love, whilst helping to change the face of two of the most elite universities in the world. Well done to their schools (Harris Academy Falconwood, Harris City Academy Crystal Palace, Harris Academy Bermondsey, Harris Academy Battersea and
Harris Academy Chafford Hundred) for supporting them, as well as the team at Harris Experience.

At Harris Academy Greenwich, students achieved 45% A*-B in A level and over 80% Distinction or Distinction* in vocational courses. Harris Garrard Academy’s first cohort of Sixth Formers completed their studies this summer and achieved 90% A*-C in their A levels. Harris Academy Tottenham achieved its best results to date including in
A level maths where 85% of students achieved an A*-C grade. Three students from Harris Academy Chafford Hundred are off to study Medicine and one from Chobham Academy.

Oxbridge places:

31 students from across the Harris Federation met their offers for Oxford and Cambridge, plus a further student who will be doing an Oxford Foundation Course. These include Daniel from Harris Academy Chafford Hundred who is among the highest achieving students in the country with 7 A* grades. 

We wish Daniel, and the whole of our outgoing Year 13, every success and happiness.
