Exam Results and Performance

To help fight the spread of coronavirus (Covid-19), the government announced that all exams due to take place in schools and colleges in England in summer 2020 were cancelled.

The government will not publish any school or college level educational performance data based on tests, assessments or exams for 2020. The Government will also not publish any national, regional, local or constituency statistics for any primary school assessments for the 2019 to 2020 academic year.

All those working with schools and colleges, such as Ofsted, Department for Education regional teams and local authorities, should use data from previous years and so we will continue to present 2019 data on this page as will be reflected in our Department for Education performance information found on the DFE website.


Exam results 2018-19

Harris Garrard Academy is delighted to announce a Progress 8 score of 0.54 for 2018-19. This is an amazing achievement in just our second year and builds on our score of 0.37 for last year, which put us in the top 18% of schools nationally for Progress 8.

This is even more remarkable when you consider the Progress 8 score of our predecessor schools (the Bexley Business Academy and Garrard Academy) which were -0.5  and -0.14 respectively.


Key statistics for Key Stage 4 (2018-19)

The following results are based on our exam results for 2018-19, announced in August 2019:

  • Our Progress 8 score is 0.54

  • 34% of students achieved Grade 5 or above in English and Maths
  • 59% of students achieved Grade 4 or above in English and Maths
