Exam Results and Performance 2017
Our students celebrated some excellent GCSE results in 2017.
Our Progress 8 score was +0.73, which puts us in the top 6% of schools nationally. Progress 8 indicates the progress made by students since primary school across eight key subjects. Our score of +0.73 means that students at HBEAD achieved, on average, over three quarters of a grade higher per entry than students with the same ability nationally.
Our Attainment 8 score for 2017 was 5.2. This is the average score achieved by students across eight subjects.
In 2017, 41% achieved level 5 or above in English and Maths, compared to 39.6% for all schools. 64.1% of students achieved level 4 or above in English and Maths. Last year 66% of students entered the EBACC, with 21% achieving it. Download a parent's guide to what the new GCSEs mean.
Here's what some of our highest-achieving students had to say.
Filip (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.”
Jude, 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.” Read more student comments.
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 to study 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.
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.
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
