Harris Academy Rainham Wins National Awards for Excellent Results

Harris Academy Rainham has been recognised nationally for its excellent results in 2017 based on data from the Department of Education and Ofsted, analysed by SSAT (the Schools, Students and Teachers network).

Harris Academy Rainham was found to be among the best performing secondary schools in the country, receiving two awards for being in the top 20% of non-selective schools nationally for attainment and progress.

The SSAT Educational Outcomes database compares all state-funded schools in England, with the highest performing for a range of key measures presented with SSAT Educational Outcomes Awards, sponsored by Lexonik. Harris Academy Rainham will be presented with their awards in the summer term at a ceremony attended by winners from across the region.

Sue Williamson, Chief Executive of SSAT said: "I am delighted that Harris Academy Rainham has won two Educational Outcomes Awards. This recognises an important aspect of the schools’ work, but, as we know, there is much more to recognise in a good school like Harris Academy Rainham. SSAT is pleased to recognise the quality of leadership and the hard work of all staff to ensure the success of every child. A big thank you and well done to pupils, parents, staff and governors.”
