Exam Results

We are immensely proud that The Totteridge Academy has celebrated three consecutive years of the best GCSE results the school has on record. Under new leadership in the summer of 2017, the students celebrated a huge jump, achieving 67% Grades 9-4/A*-C in English and Maths compared to 40% the year before, which has then been further improved year on year and is now 76%.


The most recent set of results, from the summer of 2019, surpassed the previous year’s spectacular improvements: 86% of students achieved a Grade 4 or higher in English and 81% in Maths (as well as 41% achieving a grade 7 or higher). A Progress 8 score or +0.6 puts us in the top 10% of all schools nationally 


There were some particularly impressive individual achievements from students, including:

Oscar Collins, who achieved seven grade 9s; Maddie Griffiths, Head Girl, who achieved four grade 9s and three grade 7s; and Julian Walker, who achieved four grade 9s and two grade 8s.

Our 2019 GCSE results marked another significant step forward in the achievement of our students. Our Progress 8 scores of +0.60 in 2019 means we are now in the top 10% of schools nationally and builds on our journey of improvement with +0.41 in 2018 and +0.34 in 2017 (jumping from -0.45 in 2016).  We are particularly pleased that this transformation was based on strong performance in the core subjects, such as English and Maths.  We are determined to continue this positive trajectory in the years ahead.
