Students and staff at Harris Academy are celebrating this evening after the school posted some remarkable GCSE results this year.
Results at the school in Lambs Lane South, Rainham, which joined the Harris Federation last year, are up dramatically.
This year, they posted a 14pc increase in children scoring A*-C grades or their equivalent, with 71pc of all students getting a 4 or better in maths and English this year.
Every subject area made significant increases in the number of students achieving A*-A and A*-C, with more than a quarter of all exams taken marked A-A* or 7-9.
And incredibly one student even managed a performance to put them in the top percentile nationwide.
Kemi Ahmed achieved 11 GCSEs at A* or A grade and managed to achieve the highest possible level 9 grades in English language, English literature and maths.
Special mention must also go to students Francesca Fairey, Tayeb Hamadi, Harry Spear, Claire Hennessy, Sam Dennis and Ryan Ahmed, who all achieved 10 or more GCSEs at A* or A.
Harris Academy Rainham Principal, Gareth Stananought, said: “We are delighted with our results which show how far we have come in our first year as a Harris Academy. Our students should be really proud of themselves.
“As well as students who have achieved the new ‘super grades’, students of all abilities and backgrounds have worked hard and done really well across all subjects.
“I’d like to thank all our students, parents and staff who have helped make today such a cause for celebration.
“We look forward to building on this success in the years to come.”
