London Schools Success Award from Sadiq Khan

Schools for SuccessWe are delighted and proud to have been chosen by the Mayor of London as one of the capital's Schools for Success.

The Schools for Success programme is designed to recognise schools where students make exceptional progress.

Top 32

HBAED has been selected as one of the top 32 schools in London when it comes to progress for students with low prior attainment.

“We are proud to accept this award on behalf of all the teachers and students who work so hard to develop an un-relenting 'no excuse' culture where everyone achieves,” said Executive Principal Chris Everitt (pictured, right), who collected the award last week along with Head of Academy Peter Groves.

Actions taken

The Mayor was impressed by the actions we have taken to improve aspiration, parental engagement and literacy, including:

  • Personalised tracking and regular meetings with the Principal
  • Home visit programme
  • A 'no excuses' culture
  • Focused intervention at the right time
  • Improved parental involvement
  • Exceptionally high expectations that are constantly reinforced
  • Regular Progress 8 reviews with senior team
  • Centrally set tests and standardisation processes
  • Appropriate curriculum pathways and reviews

“We’re extremely proud to have been chosen as one of the London schools that can also be an inspiration to others,” said Mr Groves.

Tackling inequality

Schools for Success is part of the Mayor's drive to help tackle education inequality and increase standards for all schoolchildren across the capital, whatever their background.

The new programme creates a network for these schools to share best practice with others across London through events, school visits and online profiles. More than 100 eligible schools are invited to join the programme, with 27 boroughs represented at this year’s Awards. This cohort, refreshed annually, represents approximately six per cent of the capital’s schools.

102 schools have been recognised in Schools for Success, the first year of the scheme. They are being asked to share their good practice through seminars and hosting visits to their school so that other schools can learn from their successful approaches.

On Wednesday 18 October, for example, we'll  be sharing our expertise at a free event titled Improving Outcomes for Secondary Aged White Working Class Boys.
