The Petchey Academy celebrated fantastic GCSE results in 2014 with 98% of students leaving with 5 GCSEs or more in traditional academic subjects.
This year the boys marginally outperformed the girls, by 1%, for the first time! Over a quarter of students achieved more than 3 A*-A grades and three quarters achieved 5 GCSEs A*-C. Alongside the national trend of tougher performance assessment in English and Maths the academy performed well against the national 5 A*-C (inc Eng & Ma) measure, achieving 59% with over 80% of students achieving their nationally expected levels of progress in English and Maths. 20% of students also achieved the academically challenging new English Baccalaureate (EBacc) combination of subjects.
With their hard work, the tireless support from dedicated staff who follow the maxim of inspiring and supporting every child , the Academy matched their excellent performance of last year at an individual student progress level which put them third in the UK of similar KS2 intake secondary schools measured by the DfE.
The Academy were particularly proud of 15 students who achieved between 10 and16 A* or A grades!
Principal Olivia Cole said, “I am so proud. It is always a pleasure to see students being rewarded for their hard work – they deserve to be very pleased.”
