Mayor of London Praises HBAED's 'Exceptional Achievements'
The exceptional performance of Harris Boys’ Academy East Dulwich has been honoured by the Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan.
The school was today invited to the Schools for Success awards ceremony at City Hall to celebrate its achievements in supporting pupils who need extra help to fulfil their potential. Harris Boys’ Academy has been recognised because of its outstanding progress record for boys, which has put us in the top 5% of schools nationally for the past four years.
Principal Peter Groves (right) received the award on behalf of the school from Deputy Mayor for Education and Childcare Joanne McCartney. “I am very proud of the staff and students here and this award is an acknowledgement of their amazing achievements,” said Mr Groves. We are one of only 42 schools in London to have received the award for a second year in a row.
The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, said: “I’d like to congratulate Harris Boys’ Academy for the fantastic work of their staff and pupils in the last year. Our Schools for Success programme shows the significant difference that a supportive and inclusive teaching environment can make for all pupils. London has some of the best schools in the country in the capital and by working together we can make sure that every young Londoner is given the opportunity to reach their full potential.”
The Mayor’s Schools for Success programme aims to improve expectations and raise standards for London’s schoolchildren, regardless of their background. Now in its second year, the programme has created a network through which schools can share experiences and best practice with others across London. All participating schools are encouraged to share their expertise with others through seminars and visits so that their success can be multiplied across London.
