Harris Girls' Academy Bromley receives 'outstanding' Ofsted rating

The academy in New Beckenham, which recently took students to visit NASA, has received the highest possible Ofsted rating.

Harris Girls Academy in Bromley received an ‘outstanding’ rating across every single category in a recent Ofsted inspection.

In their report, inspectors praised every aspect of the Harris academy’s performance including its leadership and management, achievement of pupils and the quality of teaching:

“Pupils of all abilities make remarkable progress and achieve very high results across a wide range of subjects”;

“The excellent quality of teaching, learning and assessment through-out the school is a significant strength”;

“Teachers are knowledgeable and enthusiastic. They inspire and sustain a love of learning in their pupil.  Teachers have an absolute faith in the ability of their pupils to success and give their time generously to ensure that happens”;

“Disadvantaged pupils make exceptional progress during their time at the school. Their rates of progress are much higher than other pupils nationally with the same starting points”;

“Pupils’ personal development is outstanding. They are well informed about risks and how to keep themselves safe. The welfare of pupils is a high priority. Those who need it receive effective support”;

“Pupil conduct is outstanding. They are polite and respectful, and in lessons focus with enthusiasm on their learning”;

“Pupils reported overwhelmingly that they feel safe in school. They feel cared for and confident that they have someone to talk to if they have a problem”;

“Students achieve exceptionally well in the sixth form […] sixth formers are exemplary role models to younger pupils.”

David Astin, Principal of Harris Girls Academy Bromley said:

It has been an incredible year for the academy and I am so proud of what we have achieved at Harris Girls Academy Bromley. Our 2017 results placed us as the top school in the Borough and within the top 1% of schools nationally for pupil progress so recognition from Ofsted that the education our students receive is ‘outstanding’ is the icing on the cake.

“This Ofsted report is further evidence that our girls receive a brilliant, all round education that supports them to achieve their personal best – no matter what their starting point.

“This ‘outstanding’ rating recognises the diligence and hard work of our students, staff, parents and governors and I would like to thank them – and the Harris Federation – for their continued support. 

“We look forward to continuing to provide an exceptional education for local families in Bromley for years to come.”
