Exam Results

Harris Girls’ Academy Bromley celebrates GCSE Success

Students at Harris Girls’ Academy Bromley are celebrating a strong set of GCSE results.

66% of students achieved at least five A*-C grades including English and maths and 39% achieved the demanding Ebacc.

Progress 8 is .3 as confirmed with the validated data published in late January 2017; Attainment 8 was 52.85. This is very pleasing given that this was the first time that the national cohort was judged on progress rather than 5A*-C grades. We were particularly pleased with the Ebacc score as the girls benefit from an academic suite of courses which prepares them very well for Sixth Form.

GCSE Examination Results Summer 2015

Harris Girls’ Academy Bromley’s GCSE progress is among the best in the country, putting us in the top 3% of schools nationally.

Our Progress 8 score is 0.73. This new measure highlights the progress of secondary school students across 8 key subjects, compared to similar students nationally. The national average for all schools is set as 0 with our score showing that, in each subject, our girls scored on average nearly ¾ of a grade better than similar students elsewhere.

In 2015, 327 schools opted to have their Progress 8 score ranked by the Department for Education ahead of its formal introduction in 2016. We had the 19th highest score of those 327 schools across the country.

Overall, 64% of students achieved 5 or more A* -C grades including English and Maths. We are particularly pleased that 80% of students made at least expected progress in English, whilst 86% did so in Maths. 70% of students achieved 2 or more Science GCSEs and rates of progress were very strong.

We are likewise proud that the gap between the results of pupil premium students and non-pupil premium students was the lowest in the history of the academy.

Below is the breakdown of each specific subject’s results.
