Harris Girls' Academy Bromley - best ever GCSE results!

Provisional Progress 8 figure for 2017 is +1.09. As this is over twice the threshold of +0.5 set by Ofsted for an outstanding judgement, it means that Harris Girls’ Academy Bromley is now one of the very best schools in the country. Many congratulations to all!

HGABR has achieved 80% A*-C or 4 and above grades in English and Maths, compared to 66% last year.

The percentage of students achieving the EBacc (A*-C or 4 and above in the core academic subjects) was 53% this year - up from 39% last year, against a national average of 23% in 2016.

7 girls achieved the new 'super grade' 9 in English with 13 grade 9's between them. 67% of those who sat Latin GCSE achieved an A/A*. 

Some notable individual successes included:

  • Karina Harris achieved 5 A, 1 A*, 9 and an 8 in English and a 7 in Maths;
  • Mhari Brooks achieved 4 A, 1 A* grades and an 8 in English;
  • Nadine Trimmer achieved 4 A* grades, 3 A grades, a 7 in Maths and 8 in English.

David Astin, Principal, said:

This has been a really fantastic year of results especially given the new, more demanding curriculum and grading for English and maths this year. The girls have been highly focussed in preparing for their exams and I am delighted that their hard work has been reflected in our best ever results. I'm so proud of them all today.
