Students were celebrating at Harris Academy Bermondsey after achieving top grades in their GCSEs.
Thirty students at the girls’ school achieved eight or more A/A* or 7-9 grades in their GCSE exams and 63 (40 per cent of all students) achieved five or more A/A* or 7-9 grades.
Impressively, 12 per cent of the Harris Bermondsey girls achieved the new ‘super grade’ 9 in English literature.
All students at Harris Academy Bermondsey study GCSE English, English literature, maths, at least two sciences, a humanities subject, religious studies, and a creative subject.
Principal Gillian Hodgson said: “I am absolutely thrilled with these results and so proud of our students for the incredible diligence with which they’ve approached their studies.
“Their results show an outstanding breadth of academic achievement.
“In the first year of the new 9-1 grading system, it is especially pleasing to see so many of our students excelling and achieving the very top grades.”
