Harris Academy Rainham celebrates GCSE success

Here at Harris Academy Rainham, we are celebrating after receiving some very impressive GCSE results.

Results at Harris Academy Rainham,  which joined the Harris Federation last year,  have shown a significant improvement including an increase in its EBacc score (A*-C or 4 and above in the core academic subjects), which has jumped from 23% in 2016 to 37% this year. This is now well above the national average, which was 23% in 2016.

 

71% of students at Harris Academy Rainham achieved grade 4 and above in maths and English in the new numerical grading system (equivalent to A*-C). Every subject area made significant increases in the number of students achieving A*/A and A*-C, with over a quarter of all exams taken at Harris Academy Rainham marked at an A/A* or 7-9 grade.

 

9% of students at the academy achieved nine or more A*- A or grade 7 and above.

 

Some notable individual successes included:

Kemi Ahmed who achieved 11 GCSEs all at A*/A grade or equivalent. She also achieved the new ‘super grade’ of 9 in English Language, English Literature and Mathematics, putting her in an extremely small minority of students that achieve such a performance level nationally.

 

Alex Hithersay, Francesca Fairey, Tayeb Hamadi, Harry Spear, Claire Hennessy, Sam Dennis and,

Ryan Ahmed all achieved 10 or more GCSE grades at A*/A grades or equivalent.

 

Harris Academy Rainham Principal, Gareth Stananought, said:

“We are delighted with our results which show how far we have come in our first year as a Harris Academy. Our students should be really proud of themselves.  As well as students who have achieved the new ‘super grades’, students of all abilities and backgrounds have worked hard and done really well across all subjects.  I’d like to thank all our students, parents and staff who have helped make today such a cause for celebration. We look forward to building on this success in the years to come.”
