63% of students at the all-girls school achieved A*-C grades in English and Maths, up from 59% last summer.
65 girls, or 40% of the year group, achieved the demanding Ebacc. This significantly outperforms the national average, which tends to be around 23%, and is also significantly higher than last year’s result of 27%.
Nine girls gained all A* and A grades in academically rigorous GCSE subjects, with Danqing Hang awarded 9 A* grades
Alan Dane, Principal of HAB, said:
“Our motto at the Academy is ‘Proud to be HAB’. Results day always fills me with pride and I am especially pleased this year. The results are the outcome of a great deal of hard work and I am delighted for our students and staff. “

Based on 2015 national averages, Harris Academy Bermondsey’s score is likely to be 0.53. This is higher than the national average which is always set at 0.
