Students and staff at Paddington Academy are celebrating today after achieving the academy’s best ever GCSE results.
75% of students achieved five or more A* to C grades including English and maths up from 69% last year. In total, 99% of students achieved five or more GCSEs at grades A* to C up from 98% last year.
Oli Tomlinson, Principal of Paddington Academy, said:
“We are absolutely thrilled with these results which are our best yet. These excellent results are a fitting reward for all the hard work, determination and energy students and staff have shown throughout the year.
“These results round off an exceptional year for Paddington Academy in which we were judged “Outstanding” by Ofsted and achieved our best ever A Level results. I would like to thank all the staff whose tireless work and boundless energy have enabled our students to achieve these very strong results.”
These results follow last week’s very strong A Level results when a fifth of entries achieved A* grades.
