GCSE Results 2016 - Our Best Results Ever
This year’s results at Harris Boys' Academy East Dulwich are our best ever.
69% of boys at the academy achieved A*-C grades in both English and Maths. More than a third of boys (35%) achieved the demanding EBacc, up from 29% last summer.
The academy’s top achievers include:
- Hendy who achieved 9A*, 3 A and 2 B grade
- Matthew who achieved 6 A*, 3 A and 2 B grades
- Theodore who achieved 6 A*, 5 A and 2 B grades
“Our students and parents are rightly celebrating this year’s results, which are higher than they have ever been before. We are fortunate to have an amazing team of teachers and support staff and I am very pleased that everybody’s hard work has paid off," said Principal Chris Everitt.
This year, the government has introduced a new performance measure called Progress 8 which indicates the progress made by students in secondary school across eight key subjects.
Based on 2015 national averages, the academy’s score is likely to be 0.7. This is higher than the national average which is always set at 0 and it represents Harris Boys’ students, on average, achieving over two thirds of a grade higher per entry than students with the same ability nationally.
This year 98% of students achieved A*-D in English and 94% in maths, which is an outstanding achievement.
