HAB6 Context for UCAS
Harris Academy Bermondsey is an 11-18 all girls’ comprehensive school in inner London. HAB serves a vibrant and diverse neighbourhood with high levels of both deprivation and gentrification. At least half of the girls at HAB are entitled to free school meals.
All HAB girls follow an EBacc + Arts curriculum through to GCSE, with the aim of ensuring that each of them has the opportunity to compete for top university places or higher level apprenticeships, regardless of her socio-economic background.
Our Sixth Form opened in September 2015, continuing this pursuit of academic rigour for all students. As such, HAB6 offers a small and select group of facilitating A-Levels (English Literature, History, Mathematics, Biology, Chemistry and Physics), alongside A-Level Sociology and Business Studies BTEC Extended Diploma.
As they were the first HAB6 A-Level cohort, we entered all of our current Year 13 students for AS examinations in the summer 2016 series, with all now following 3 A-Levels or equivalent this year.
