Harris Boys' Academy East Dulwich Celebrates Superb GCSE Results
2019 has been another fantastic year for GCSE results at Harris Boys’ Academy East Dulwich.
Overall, two thirds of students achieved a Grade 4 or above in English and Maths with a large proportion of boys gaining at least a Grade 7 (equivalent to an A or higher) in English (22%) and Maths (23%).
Around a third of students (30%) achieved the demanding Ebacc, which is well above the most recent national average (24%).
The academy also excelled in science. There was a 100% pass rate in Triple Science and an impressive 20% of the cohort achieved the very top Grade 9 which is equivalent to an A**.
All students studying Mandarin or Russian achieved a Grade 8 or 9.
There were a number of individual successes including Mohamed (pictured above with his father and Mr Groves), who achieved six Grade 9s. A special mention also goes to Jem, Zack, Mohamed, Roney, Jamil, Reza and Oliver, who all achieved Grades 8 or 9 in at least eight subjects.
