2nd Place Out of 55 Similar Schools


For the second year running, Harris Boys' Academy East Dulwich has been ranked 2nd in our group of 55 similar schools across the country.

This measures our performance (for Year 11 students last year) against schools across the country with the same intake (ie students with the same attainment levels when they joined in Year 7).

"This is the second year running that we have achieved this milestone," says Principal Chris Everitt. "There is statistically no better performing school in this group within a 75 mile radius of Harris Boys’ Academy."

Most schools in our group achieved below 49% 5A*-C including English and Maths (we were 64%). The lowest school achieved 15% 5A*-C including English and Maths.

"Everyone at Harris Boys Academy has the potential to achieve great things."

Our average grade achieved by students across eight subjects improved from a C- to a C+, compared to the previous year. This was the highest average grade of all 55 similar schools. 

"This is an amazing achievement that we have now achieved two years in a row, and is a real testament to the hard work of our students and staff," said Mr Everitt. "We only achieve this because we work together and have such high expectations of our students. As I have always said, personal characteristics do not determine a child’s potential to achieve. Whatever a student’s background it does not determine outcome. Everyone at Harris Boys Academy has the potential to achieve great things in life."

Fischer Family Trust

We are also delighted to announce that Fischer Family Trust has ranked Harris Boys’ Academy in the top 2% of the country for achievement in 5 A*-C including English and Maths. In 2014 we were in the top 1% for the same measure.

This is an amazing performance for the second year running. There are just under 4000 secondary schools in England so this really is a great achievement for all at Harris Boys’ Academy. For our achievement in the best eight subject average we are in the top 5% of schools nationally.
