Goodwin Academy is celebrating an improvement in GCSE results across the board today.

An improvement of 10% in the English & Maths grade 4+ basic score highlighted the progress made by these departments with Maths increasing their grade 4+ attainment by 11% and English grade 4+ by 7% and grade 5+ by 8%.

There was also an upturn by 7% in grade 4+ Science results and French improved by a staggering 25%.

Departments whose progress levels were above national average included Business Studies, Health & Social Care, Religious Studies, Drama, Physics and Chemistry.

Simon Smith, the Principal of Goodwin Academy, said:

“I would like to congratulate all students on the results they have achieved, they must all be very proud of their successes and this reflects their dedication and commitment. It is rewarding to see that the hard work has paid off and I thank all staff for their continued hard work and support.”

The Academy will be celebrating the achievements of all students at all ability levels recognising the relationships and mutual respect between students and staff, as well as the effort and determination required by all involved.

Students gaining top grades/achieving outstanding progress were:

  • Joshua Milburn – Josh has made exceptional progress in his GCSEs achieving, on average, nearly two grades higher per subject than expected from KS2. He achieved six good passes including grade 4s in both Maths and English. With these outstanding results, he should be able to pursue a route into Mechanics.
  • Ebony Powell – Ebony achieved three grade 8s in Maths, Chemistry and Geography and has achieved another two grade 7s to secure an excellent set of results. These results show that Ebony is a grade and a half better, on average, than expected from KS2.
  • Bethany Millett – Bethany has excelled in her main subjects of interest by achieving four grade 8s in Maths, Biology, Chemistry and Physics. This a fantastic outcome and shows that her dedication to her learning and studies has paid off.
  • Jay Kennedy – Jay has achieved eight strong passes at grade 5 and above. These results include a grade 8 in Maths and grade 7s in French, Biology, Chemistry and Physics.

All the staff at Goodwin Academy would also like to congratulate Grace Valance, Jake Larkins, Ellie Madden, Charlotte Callan, Harry McGahan, Zoe Harrington, Millie Biddle and Annabel Boddy for the progress they have made in their GCSEs and wish them good luck for the next steps on their journey through education and on, in to employment.



Goodwin Academy would like to celebrate Hannah Brice’s remarkable achievement of 100% attendance throughout her education at Goodwin Academy. It is an impressive achievement to be able to claim 100% attendance throughout an entire academic year, but Hannah has achieved this also throughout her entire 7 year school career.

Schools try hard to encourage good attendance from their pupils; missing just two days a month can have a knock-on effect on learning and the quality of the qualifications that students achieve. Students with good attendance also feel more connected to their school community and have the opportunity to reach their full potential.

In addition, since joining Goodwin Academy, Hannah’s brother, Ottie Brice, has also completed 5 years of perfect attendance alongside his sister. We are very proud of them both and the commitment they have shown to their school and their studies. Excellent attendance is a result of not only personal resilience, but strong support from home, and we are very grateful for the support that Mrs Brice has given to the school over the years.
