Padworth College sees a marked increase in the rise of top grades at A level and GCSE

Padworth College, a school renowned for celebrating individuality, diversity and internationalism is delighted to see a marked increase in the rise of top grades, with an impressive 52% of all entries awarded A*-B at A level and 77% of entries graded A*-C at GCSE. The excellent results are consistent with the 90% overall A level pass rate and 100% GCSE pass rate that was achieved last year by students at the school.

Amongst the highest A level achievers was Iris Qu, who secured an A* and two A’s, Shubham Malik who achieved an impressive three A grades and a B and Edward Xu who secured an A*, an A and a B. Due to such a high standard of grades, students at Padworth College have been offered places to study at leading Universities, which include UCL, Bath, Reading and Leeds.

At GCSE level, there were some very strong individual performances from students, most notably, Atul Vladamani and Sylvia Makenga, who despite only having joined the College a year ago, between them notched up four A* and eleven A grades.

The Principal, John Aguilar, commented “These results reflect the hard work and commitment of our students and their teachers, and the environment that we have created which makes is highly conducive to learning.  We study in small groups and encourage our students to work in ways that suit them which has created some super results.  All are to be congratulated”.

There is an excellent international spirit within the school, where students from all over the world are welcomed to study. This adds to the impressiveness of the results achieved, as for many students, English is not their first language.

The staff at Padworth College are proud to offer an informal tutorial atmosphere to school-level education, where individual talents are encouraged and all are respected and valued. This is nurtured through small, supportive classes, individual attention and flexible boarding/day arrangements, as well as a range of flexible courses which are tailored to suit students’ needs and academic goals.
