An all-girls academy has ranked top of the borough for the progress of its students

Harris Girls’ Academy Bromley, based in Beckenham, achieved a provisional Progress 8 score of 1.06.

The score was created by the government as a way of determining progress between the end of Key Stage 2, the end of primary school, and the end of pupils’ GCSEs.

In Harris Girls’ Academy’s case the score means its students’ GCSE results are on average a grade higher than other students who were at a similar level of achievement in Key Stage 2.

Only 33 schools in England achieved provisional scores of one or above.

Four other schools in Bromley managed to gain a “well above average”, including Langley Park School for Girls, Newstead Wood School and Harris Academy Orpington.

David Astin, principal of Harris Girls’ Academy Bromley, said: “We are so pleased to be one of very few schools in England to achieve this score for pupil progress. We want all of our students to succeed to the very best of their ability, regardless of their achievement levels when they come to us in Year 7.

“These figures show that girls at Harris Bromley make more progress compared to other schools. That is down to the high expectations we encourage our students to have and the consistently high quality of teaching and learning that takes place at Harris Bromley.

“I would encourage any local parents who are considering schools for their daughter for September 2018 to come and see for themselves what we have to offer at Harris Girls Academy Bromley.”

Highly selective St Olaves Grammar School was the other secondary to achieve a “well above average” score.
