Due to bad weather the school will be closed today, Thursday 1 March. Because of technical issues we're having some problems updating our website with this information just now but to confirm the school is closed today. Apologies for the inconvenience.

Harris Boys' in Top 7% for Student Progress

HBAED_Image_Gallery_20Harris Boys' is in the top 7% of schools in England and Wales for student progress, and in the top 10 all-boys’ schools, according to latest government figures.

Progress at secondary school is now measured using Progress 8. This compares students' performance when they start and when they leave secondary school, to measure progress across eight key subjects.

Our Progress 8 score is 0.49, which is above national average. In fact, of all 3,085 secondary schools in England and Wales, only 205 achieved a higher Progress 8 score. And we're seventh in the whole of England and Wales for all-boys’ comprehensives.

“To be ranked seventh in the country is fantastic for our academy," said Principal Chris Everitt. "We're also ahead of almost 50 selective boys’ schools, which is remarkable. Well done to everyone at HBAED.”

Our students achieve, on average, almost half a grade higher per entry than students with the same ability nationally. We are also in the top 6% for progress in English and Maths.

The chart below shows how Harris Boys' compares with all other schools in England and Wales for Progress 8 and Attainment 8. We appear in the top right hand quarter, which shows we have both above average attainment and above average progress.

Attainment 8 chart

"This is an amazing achievement and one of which everyone here can feel very proud," said Principal Chris Everitt. "We have a great team at Harris Boys' and it is a privilege to lead such a team. The academy is also in the top 27% for Attainment 8 which is incredible, considering it does not consider the starting points of students."

All figures are based on provisional results.
