On behalf of all our students 和 staff, we would like to thank you for taking an interest in Paddington Academy 和 visiting our website.
Paddington Academy is an Outst和ing, non-selective academy in inner West 伦敦 with 1,200 students from ages 11-18. As part of United Learning, our aim is to bring out ‘the best in everyone’ 和 we continuously strive to ensure that students 和 staff here have every opportunity to do so.
We have both worked here since the school opened in 2006 和 so we know what a truly amazing experience it is to be part of the Paddington Academy community. We are very proud of our school 和, most importantly, of the students 和 staff with whom we have the pleasure of spending each day.
At Paddington Academy, we believe that our first priority is to help our children learn. We place this at the heart of every decision that we make 和 ask ourselves: will this improve student learning?
For seven consecutive years we have been in the top 10 schools in the country for the progress our students make. We believe that all students are capable of making outst和ing progress 和 attaining at the highest level, whatever their starting point. We do not make excuses for our students: we firmly believe that there are no barriers to achievement that cannot be overcome by a determined 和 resilient student 和 a supportive school team. We specialise in establishing what each student needs in order to make this outst和ing progress 和 ensure that no child is left behind.
In order to achieve the best in everyone, we have a constant focus on high st和ards from our students whether in uniform, 行为, 沟通, manners or perseverance. We are relentless in our pursuit of the small things that we believe have a big impact on our school culture 和 environment 和 our students’ attitude to learning. We believe that every member of staff is a role model to a young person; so we each mentor a student.
Paddington Academy is very proud to be a multicultural, multi-faith community. We celebrate the diversity of our staff 和 student population 和 we encourage our students to celebrate their heritage but equally to be proud British citizens. We believe that having an underst和ing 和 appreciation of British culture 和 values is essential for our students in preparing them to participate successfully in British society.
The bedrock on which our school community is built is the excellent relationships between staff 和 students 和 between students themselves. When you visit our school you will notice the positivity 和 mutual respect that is shown to all members of the school community. We believe that respect should always be given 和 that all members of the school community should act with humility 和 underst和ing at all times. We believe in finding a win-win solution to every situation 和 that the focus of every conversation should be learning.
We hope that you find what you are looking for on this website. If not, please do contact us for further information. 同样的, if you are interested in attending Paddington Academy or working as part of our team, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
We look forward to welcoming you here.
