Harrow Way improve GCSE performance with their 2012 results

August 23rd, 2012

P1010754Harrow Way Community School students and staff are celebrating their 2012 GCSE results with the news that these have improved on last year’s performance with 64% of students achieving five GCSE grade A* to C passes and 47% achieving five GCSE grade A* to C passes including Maths and English.

Particularly pleasing for the school is that every student who left Harrow Way this summer does so with at least one GCSE grade A* to G and 97.7% of leavers have five A* to G passes.

Mark Warren, Acting Headteacher said: “We are hugely proud of the school’s performance and our student’s success. Improving on last year’s results, with our biggest Year 11 group ever, would not have been feasible without the dedication, hard work and commitment of teaching and support staff, governors, students and parents. When Harrow Way students leave the school to either pursue further education, training or employment, they do so as well rounded young adults and with the right qualifications which enable them to make the best choices for their future. I am especially pleased that every single one of our leavers has already agreed the next phase of their learning in either the form of further study or to embark on their working careers.”

The average points score takes into account all qualifications studied at the school including GCSEs and BTECS. For the first time at Harrow Way, the average point score per student is over 400, which is the equivalent to 10 GCSEs.

Mark Warren concludes: “We have hit the Fisher Family Trust* targets for our headline measures (five A* to C including English and Maths) which puts Harrow Way in the country’s top 25% of schools for value added, ie. the students progress made over their time at school.”

Harrow Way will be hosting an Open Evening on Thursday 27 September 2012, 6.30pm to 9.00pm for prospective families wishing to learn more about the school. Open mornings will also be held on Friday 28th September and Monday 1st October from 9.15am to 10.30am.
