Students at Harris Academy Peckham are celebrating improved GCSE results. A*- C grades in both English and Maths are eight percentage points higher than last summer.
This year, the government has introduced a new performance measure called Progress 8 which indicates the progress made by students in secondary school across eight key subjects. Based on 2015 national averages, Harris Academy Peckham’s score is likely to be 0.35. This is higher than the national average which is always set at 0.
A fifth of students (22%) achieved the Ebacc, which means that they got good passes in all of the core academic subjects.

Carol-Anne Alcock, Principal of the Academy congratulated students and staff:
“This year’s results reflect the aspirations of our students and their families, and the talent and dedication of our staff. We will continue to improve, but the Academy has come a long way from its beginnings, when it was one of the worst schools in the country”.
