The sciences led the way for a ‘fantastic’ set of GCSE results at Harris Boys’ Academy in East Dulwich said the school today.
It reported a 100 per cent pass rate in Triple Science, with twenty per cent of the cohort securing the top possible Grade 9.
Overall, two thirds of students achieved a Grade 4 or above in English and Maths, while 30 per cent of students also achieved the ‘demanding’ Ebacc, above the national average of 24 per cent.
All students taking Russian or Mandarin bagged themselves a top grade of either 8 or 9.
Principal Peter Groves said he wanted to congratulate each of the Year 11 pupils for their ‘exceptional’ results which reflected on their ‘hard work and commitment’.
“Our talented teachers and support staff give everything to make sure that our children succeed and I am thankful for their continued dedication as well as the fantastic support of our parent body,” he said.
“It is always rewarding to see our students excel and achieve the very top grades and this year I am delighted that 12% of our students have average a Grade 7 or above in ten or more subjects – a fantastic achievement.”
Among the success stories highlighted by the school were that of Mohamed, who achieved six Grade 9s.
Special mentions were also given to pupils Jem, Zack, Mohamed, Roney, Jamil, Reza and Oliver, who all achieved Grades 8 or 9 in at least eight subjects.
