Exam Results

The government has confirmed there will be no national performance tables published this year, due to exams being cancelled in 2020.

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

Read about how three HAB girls gained Oxbridge places after excelling in this year's exams.

Staff and students at Harris Academy Bermondsey celebrated extremely strong GCSE results in 2019.

Here are our results from 2017-18.

  • We achieved a Progress 8 score of 0.91, which puts us in the top 3% of schools in England for pupil progress.
  • Our Attainment 8 score was 53.3.
  • 42% of students achieved a Level 5 or above in English and Maths.

  • 93% of students stayed in education or went into employment.

Several HAB girls achieved remarkable individual success too, including Shelly, who achieved nine Grade 9s, and an A in A-Level Chinese, which she sat early. Other success stories included Tulika, who achieved seven Grade 9s and two Grade 8s, and Esther, who gained five Grade 9s and four Grade 8.

Gabriela Boeva 900x504

Gabriela (pictured above) achieved very impressive full marks in her English Literature papers, securing a top Grade 9, which she also matched for English Language exams.


Principal Rebecca Iles-Smith said:  “Well done to each and every one of our girls on their fantastic GCSE results.

“They have excelled across a breadth of subjects and should be incredibly proud of what they have achieved – these results are truly well-deserved.”

She added that she was ‘particularly proud’ that the school had bucked a national trend of languages decline, with all students taking a foreign language, and also added special praise for a strong showing in the school’s sciences subjects.
