You should only send your child to school on Monday if you have to, because your work is critical to our COVID-19 response. If you are able to keep your child at home, you should. https://t.co/n1B1gngVWr

HGA in 2nd Place out of 55 Similar Secondary Schools

HG098Harris Garrard Academy has come 2nd out of 55 similar secondary schools based on its Attainment 8 outcomes, the Department for Education (DfE) announced recently. This is a remarkable achievement in just our second year as an academy. Last year we came 5th in our group.

The DfE puts secondary schools across England and Wales into groups of 55 whose students have a similar attainment at the end of primary education. They then compare how students in those schools perform at the end of Key Stage 4. This enables schools to get a really good idea of how they are performing against schools with a similar intake.

"Before joining the Harris Federation this school was significantly under-performing, so we are very proud of our students and teachers for having been able to turn things around so quickly,"  said Chris Everitt, Assistant Director, Harris Federation Secondary Education. "At the heart of this success is an absolute belief in the ability of every student to shine – no matter what their background, ability or character."


Excellent student progress too

Harris Garrard Academy has also scored well for student progress - achieving a provisional Progress 8 score of 0.54 for 2018-19, well above national average. View our Department for Education performance information.
