HBAED Celebrates Strong GCSE Results

HBAED Results 2015Students and staff at Harris Boys’ Academy East Dulwich were this morning celebrating after picking up a strong set of GCSE results.

In only its second year of GCSEs after opening as a brand new school in 2009, 64% of the Academy’s students achieved five or more A*-C grades including English and maths.

Last year the national average for boys achieving 5A*-C including English and Maths was 48.2% and for all pupils it was 53.4%. "Our figure of 64% demonstrates outstanding outcomes for our students," said Principal Chris Everitt.

  • In English, 83% of students made expected progress and 44% made above expected progress.
  • In Maths 78% of students made expected progress and 39% made above expected progress.

"Both these results demonstrate an outstanding achievement and will be way above the national averages," said Mr Everitt. "Within all the subjects offered at HBAED, eleven have out-performed the national average significantly, which is a fantastic performance and really demonstrates the team work ethos within the Academy."

Notable individual successes

Amidst the success of the Academy as a whole, there have also been some notable individual successes:

  • Amir who achieved two A* and seven A grades
  • Dre who achieved two A* and eight A grades
  • Samuel who achieved one A* and seven A grades
  • Shah who achieved three A* and two A and four B grades

"Our aim is that all students can achieve regardless of their starting points, and in only our second year of GCSEs results this approach is clearly making a positive impact.

"I look forward to seeing our students flourish even more as they go on to Sixth Form.”
