Principal Olivia Cole remarked “Days like today are the reason that many of us go in to teaching in the first place. To see students celebrating their hard earned success and being rightly proud of themselves has got to be the best part of being in education. We are extremely pleased with another strong set of results in the Sciences, demonstrating how strong these subjects are at the Academy. We are absolutely delighted that such a large number of students have achieved more than 10 GCSEs at grades 5 and above, three times the number of students who achieved this last year. Teaching techniques at The Petchey Academy ensure that the most able students are stretched and challenged to enable them to perform at their very best."
