Harris Academies
All Academies in our Federation aim to transform the lives of the students they serve by bringing about rapid improvement in examination results, personal development and aspiration.


Exam Results

Key Stage 4 Results (GCSE) 2016

78% of students achieved A*-C grades in English and Mathematics, considerably above the national average of 59%.

Progress 8

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 including English, Maths, Science, Humanities and Languages.

Our Progress 8 score was +0.6 which is ‘well above national average’ (set at 0).

Attainment 8

Attainment 8 measures a student's average grade across eight subjects – the same subjects that count for Progress 8. To calculate a student’s Attainment 8 score, you add up the points for their eight subjects and divide by 10 to get their Attainment 8 score. To calculate the Academy's Attainment 8 score, you take the average of all our students' scores. Students who do not take eight subjects, score zero for any unfilled slots.  

Our Attainment 8 score was 54.2, above the national average of 48.5.

English Baccalaureate (EBacc)

The English Baccalaureate is a performance measure of students who achieve grade C or above in English, mathematics, history or geography, science and a language.

30% of eligible students achieved the English Baccalaureate.
