HAB has won national acclaim for its Mentors from Business Scheme.
Men and women from top flight City companies are matched, one to one, with girls as they prepare for their GCSE examinations. The meetings, which are held before the Academy day, continue every week throughout the years leading up to the examinations.
The fantastic increase in the number of HAB girls achieving the highest grades in GCSE including English and Mathematics is due to the hard work of the girls themselves, the support of their families and to the guidance of their teachers. It is also due to the inspiring support and encouragement they receive from their mentors from business.
The masterclass programme, delivered by our business partners, are subject-specific events that offer students the opportunity to experience interactive sessions, learn more about their subject and challenge their thinking.
Both of these popular schemes are playing their part in increasing the GCSE results of students in The Harris Academy Bermondsey.
