Harris Federation - Education Performance

The majority of Harris academies inspected by Ofsted are ‘outstanding’ and the others are all ‘good’: 

  • 19 of our inspected academies are ‘outstanding’ and 10 are ‘good’.
  • Our academies are three times more likely to be ‘outstanding’ than schools nationally.
  • Of 20 academies that joined us because they had previously been considered to be failing, 12 have become ‘outstanding’ and the other eight are ‘good’. 

 

In their 2016 performance measures for Multi Academy Trusts (MATs), the Department for Education said that: 

  • At secondary, our Progress 8 score was the third highest of any MAT, with the trusts in first and second place running just five and three academies each (compared to 16 Harris academies considered by DfE analysts). 
  • Our primary academies were ‘significantly above average’ in all three performance measures: we are one of just six out of 95 MATs to have achieved this.  

 

Closing the gap between groups of pupils is part of the core mission of the Harris Federation:

  • Consecutive reports by academic researchers at social mobility charity the Sutton Trust have concluded that we are among the top academy trusts for improving the prospects of disadvantaged pupils. 
  • Nationally, Progress 8 for disadvantaged pupils was -0.38 in 2016. This compares with +0.41 at Harris, showing that our disadvantaged pupils achieved more than a grade higher in six of their GCSEs than they would have done on average elsewhere.
  • Lower ability pupils are five times more likely to achieve the English Baccalaureate with the Harris Federation than they are nationally.
  • Not only do disadvantaged children in Harris primary academies outperform disadvantaged children nationally, they also outperform non-disadvantaged children: 64% of our Year 6 pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds met expected standards in reading, writing and maths in 2016. This compares to 60% of all non-disadvantaged children in the country and just 39% of disadvantaged children. 

 

Of 11 Harris primary academies with Key Stage 2 results in 2016, eight had been placed in Ofsted failure categories before joining our Federation. But:

  • Every Harris primary academy outperformed its local authority average for the percentage of pupils meeting expected standards in reading, writing and maths. 
  • 71% of Harris primary children met expected standards overall (this compares to a national average of 53%). 

 

In 2016, all 17 Harris secondary academies achieved positive Progress 8 scores:

  • Progress 8 at Harris was +0.46, compared to the national average of -0.03. Put into context, this means that every Harris pupil achieved about a grade higher in four GCSEs than they would have done on average elsewhere.
  • Locally, Harris academies topped the Progress 8 league tables in five of the nine boroughs we had schools in.
  • Four Harris academies were in the top 1% of schools nationally.
  • Progress 8 at Harris Academy Battersea was 1.14, the highest of any school in London and the fourth highest in the country. 

 

Harris secondary pupils are achieving success based on a core curriculum of academic subjects: 

  • In 2010, the average English Baccalaureate score for the secondary schools (including predecessor schools) that now make up the Harris Federation was just 7%.  This was five times higher in 2016, at 35%. The national average is 23%. 
  • 15% of Harris sixth formers won places at Russell Group universities in 2016. Increasing numbers are also winning places on the most competitive apprenticeship programmes: last summer, these included KPMG and Bain. 
  • At Harris Westminster, 23 sixth formers – 10% of the year group sitting A Levels in summer 2017 –have received offers to study at Oxford and Cambridge.
