HGAED is 'School for Success', says London Mayor

Harris Girls’ Academy East Dulwich has been celebrated under a new programme called Schools for Sucess set up by the Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, to recognise exceptional schools in the capital.

Schoosl for success 2 (2)We've won the recognition because our students achieve fantastic GCSE qualifications in a range of challenging subjects, whatever their starting point in Year 7 when they join our school.

Principal, Carrie Senior (pictured at the awards ceremony, right), said: "We’re delighted to be invited to join the Schools for Success programme and to offer our support to other London schools. We’re very proud of our staff, who make such a difference to the life chances of young people, and of the girls themselves, who have worked so hard to achieve such success."

Tackling inequality

Schools for Success is part of the Mayor's drive to help tackle education inequality and increase standards for all schoolchildren across the capital, whatever their background.

Disadvantaged students at our academy achieve nearly a grade higher in every subject they study than the national average, with students with low prior attainment achieving a full grade and a half better.

The new programme creates a network for these schools to share best practice with others across London through events, school visits and online profiles. More than 100 eligible schools are invited to join the programme, with 27 boroughs represented at this year’s Awards. This cohort, refreshed annually, represents approximately six per cent of the capital’s schools.

"Outstanding achievement"

The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, said: "Congratulations to Harris Girls’ Academy East Dulwich for its outstanding achievements and for the hard work of its pupils and teaching staff. By sharing best practice with other schools across the capital, we can help every young Londoner reach their full potential, and ensure no child is left behind.”

102 schools have been recognised in Schools for Success, the first year of the scheme. They are being asked to share their good practice through seminars and hosting visits to their school so that other schools can learn from their successful approaches.


Harris Federation schools recognised in the Schools for Success programme. From left to right: Harris Girls' Academy East Dulwich, Harris Academy Beckenham, Chobham Academy, Harris Boys' Academy East Dulwich and Harris Academy Greenwich. Harris Academy Bermondsey also received a Schools for Success Award.
