Students at Harris Girls’ Academy East Dulwich celebrated another year of excellent GCSE results as they maintained the solid improvement made by the school since 2010.
Students achieving 5 A*-C grades at GSCE, including English and Maths, rose to 67%. This was all the more remarkable in a year when exam grades were slightly lower in much of the country. Principal Jane Fletcher said:
“The hard work and dedication of our students has been rewarded with a strong set of results. It is very satisfying to have been able to consolidate and improve our results, which have more than doubled since we opened as an Academy. We will keep up the pace to build on our improvements again next year.”
The top departments for GCSE results were Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Music, ICT, Art, Maths, English Language and Literature.
Students achieving 5 or more A*-C grades
Across every secondary school in the country the average number of students achieving five or more A* to C grades is 66%. At HGAED a remarkable 96% of students achieved this standard.
A-level grades at Harris Girls’ Academy East Dulwich get better and better.
This year, 100% of candidates achieved at least three A-level passes and 83% of these passes were graded A–C.
Top candidates included: Sophia Bajwa, AAA in Maths, Psychology and Business Studies; and Comfort Ogbonnaya, BAA in History, Psychology and Chemistry. They have won places at Surrey and St Andrews Universities respectively.
The average grade set for our students was AAB – good enough for them to choose the course and university that best suits their talents.
An important feature of GCSE results day is signing up successful students for post-16 courses. “We are very pleased that so many of our students have chosen to stay on at the Academy for A-levels and are aiming for places at top universities,” says Principal Jane Fletcher.
