Mayor of London Sadiq Kahn Praises HGAED
The exceptional performance of Harris Girls’ Academy East Dulwich has been honoured by the Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan.
Harris Girls’ Academy East Dulwich has been recognised by the Schools for Success programme, because of its excellent outcomes for all learners including those who need extra help to fulfil their potential, especially low prior attainers and those in receipt of Pupil Premium support.
“I’d like to congratulate Harris Girls’ Academy East Dulwich for the fantastic work of their staff and pupils in the last year," said Mr Kahn. "London has some of the best schools in the country and by working together we can make sure that every young Londoner is given the opportunity to reach their full potential.”
Sharing best practice
The Mayor’s programme aims to improve expectations and raise standards for London’s schoolchildren, regardless of their background. Now in its second year, Schools for Success has created a network through which schools can share experiences and best practice with others across London.
Principal, Carrie Senior said: “We are delighted to again be asked to share our success via the Schools for Success programme. It’s a wonderful opportunity for schools to share ideas and learn from one another. We’re very proud of the girls’ achievements and the brilliant support and teaching from our staff that helps get them there.”
Only around six per cent of the capital’s schools are invited on to the programme. Of the schools recognised this year, more than a third, like Harris Girls’ Academy East Dulwich, are participating for the second year running. All participating schools are encouraged to share their expertise with others through seminars and visits so that their success can be multiplied across London.
