Harris Academies
All Academies in our Federation aim to transform the lives of the students they serve by bringing about rapid improvement in examination results, personal development and aspiration.

GCSE Results

Harris Academy opened just three years ago and before joining the Harris Federation, only 44% of students were achieving A*-C in English and Mathematics. This figure has almost doubled with 83% of students now achieving this measure making it the top performing state-school in Wandsworth. 

In terms of Progress 8, the new national measure, we were top of London in 2016 and look set to score even higher when new national measures are confirmed in October. Our provisional figure of +1.40 would be higher than any school has ever achieved in England and it is a testament to all the hard work put in by staff and students alike. We are a Sunday Times Top 20 School and have also received the Evening Standard School of the Year Award.

The academy also saw a significant increase in its EBacc score (A*-C or 4 and above in the core academic subjects), which increased from 41% in 2016 to 54% this year. This is well above the national average, which was only 23% in 2016.

Amidst the success of the academy as a whole, there are a number of achievements from students, including 16 year-old Anita Fonseca.

Anita achieved the very best results possible, with straight A*s in sociology, physics, chemistry, biology, French, Spanish, geography and statistics. She also has been awarded an impressive two 9s (the new ‘super grade’ in the new numerical grading system for maths and English).  

Anita has said:

“After finishing school and university I'm not entirely sure yet what career to go into after, but I know it'll be something in the field of science - most likely chemistry - because that's what I really love and find interesting. I think I'll be able to decide better after my A-Levels because they go into much more depth. That would let me see what specific areas of science and maths that I find most enjoyable so I could then make a better decision on what to do next.  

I'm staying at Harris Academy Battersea Sixth Form, and taking Chemistry, Physics, Maths and Further Maths.

I would love to go to Imperial College London since it's very specialised in those areas so it's my ideal first choice, but there are plenty of other options and I plan on applying to Cambridge and Oxford as well."

Dr David Moody, Principal of Harris Academy Battersea, said:

“The quality of the teachers in the school is incredible and they give their everything to make sure that our children succeed. There is a relentless drive for higher academic standards and it is that drive to improve that runs through the very core of our staff.

“Whilst there are many selective schools in the area, Harris Battersea continues to serve its community without selection and pays little heed to where a child comes from. It cares only about where they will get to and watching students battle their way to the top, many from difficult starts, is a humbling privilege. These are exceptional results and I‘m so proud of them all today”
