Exam Results and Performance 2017

Tom and Ms Seward Science   CopyOur students are celebrating some excellent GCSE results, which were announced in August 2017. Here's what some of our highest-achieving students had to say.

Tom (right, pictured with science teacher Ms Seward) gained 13 A-A*grades and an 8 in Maths, English Language and English Literature. "I'm excited and a bit overwhelmed," he said. "I think the revision made a difference and giving my all. The school definitely supported me and pushed me to get through this.” He’s now going on to study French, History and Geography at A Level.

Filip   CopyFilip (pictured with Mr Everitt), who achieved eight A-A* grades, said: “I’m really happy with what I got. I revised hard and put the work in and the teachers were there for me morning and evening.”

Mark, who achieved 14 A-A* grades and a 9 in Maths said : “I prepared really hard and learned a lot and am really happy with how I did. The teachers set me extra work to help me take things to the next level.”

Nii-Akwei’s dad, Adotey (pictured below, right), was really proud of his son’s achievements. “We’ve had two boys at this school. We wanted to send them here because it has an ethos of achievement and a good system for supporting students. Every time we’ve come to the school we’ve met teachers who have provided inspiration and they’ve always been very accessible.” Nii’s mum, Hilary (pictured below, left), said she was “absolutely delighted. Nii gave A* effort and got A* results.” Nii (pictured below, centre) achieved eight A-A* grades.

“The reason I did so well was definitely the teachers,” said Dylan, who gained seven A-A* grades. “They don’t just take care of your educational needs but your whole wellbeing. If I was overworked or stressed they reassured me and reminded me of previous times when I’d felt like that but come through it.”

JudeJude (pictured right, with Mr Groves), who achieved six A*-A grades, said: “My approach was to revise quite a bit every day and if there was a topic I didn’t understand the teachers were there for me.”

“I wasn’t expecting an 8 in Maths!” said Theo, who also gained 11 A-A* grades and an 8 in English Literature. “My approach to the exams was to focus on key knowledge. I would say the time here was well spent! I’m off to do A Levels now, probably History, Chemistry, Politics and EPQ.”

Progress 8

Last year, the government introduced a new performance measure called Progress 8 which indicates the progress made by students since primary school across eight key subjects.

Our provisional Progress 8 score in 2017 is +0.78. This was higher than the national average which is always set at 0. It means Harris Boys’ students achieved, on average, over three quarters of a grade higher per entry than students with the same ability nationally


A Level and BTEC

Harris Boys' Academy East Dulwich students celebrated their best A Level and BTEC results ever in 2017. The vast majority of our students have progressed on to higher education at university. They obtained places in universities across the country and one student is even studying in the USA. They are soon to embark on a wide range of interesting courses including Law, Economics, Biology, English, Sports Science, Business, Computer Science and Graphic Design.

Some of our students chose the apprenticeship career path instead and secured competitive placements in engineering, ICT, hospitality, the military, and the music industry.

Regardless of their route, our students have taken the next major step in ensuring a wonderful career and future for themselves. We wish them every success and look forward to them visiting to tell us all about their continued successes.

A Level

The new linear A Level courses are very demanding and our students have worked exceptionally hard to combat these challenges. They have pushed themselves and taken difficult A Level courses in Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics, English Literature, Psychology and many more. Special mentions to:

  • Jake Mitchell - ABC
  • Stewart George Miles - ABC

Vocational (BTEC)

Our BTEC courses require tremendous dedication and commitment throughout the two years in order to complete large amounts of challenging work. Our students have studied a whole range of courses focused on Sport, Business, Media, ICT and more. They worked very hard to meet this demand and even surpass it.

HBAED's overall performance in vocational courses far exceeds last year's national performance. We are very confident we will again exceed the national average this year when the data is released.

  • National APE (2016): 34.7
  • Harris Boys' Academy Sixth Form APE (2017): 46.8

  • Usman Bhatti - Distinction* x 4
  • Alex Briley - Distinction* x 3
  • Alexander Oviawe - Distinction* x 3
  • Alfie Talmage - Distinction* x 3
  • Benjamin Briley - Distinction* x 3
