The DFE have published their school performance tables for the Summer 2023 GCSE results and are delighted that we can now share the exceptional performance of all four the schools within our Trust compared with other schools nationally.

All four schools in the Trust have Progress 8 score that place them well within in the top 5% of schools in the country – with Ealing Fields, Ada Lovelace and Twyford all being well within the top 1% of schools in the country.

Progress 8 is the main school performance measure which shows how a students’ results in the majority of their subjects compare with the results of similar students nationally (the progress made since students joined us after completing their KS2 SATs). A score of +1.00 would mean that the results were, on average, 1 grade higher at our school than the national average of results for similar students. There are around 3400 mainstream state secondary schools in the country.

Twyford is 22nd in the country with a Progress 8 score of +1.26 (within the top 0.7% of schools in the country)

The other schools in the Trust also performed exceptionally well.

  • Ada Lovelace is 17th in the country with a Progress 8 score of +1.33 (within the top 0.6% of schools in the country)
  • Ealing Fields is 16th in the country with a Progress 8 score of +1.34 (within the top 0.5% of schools in the country)
  • William Perkin is 153rd in the country with a Progress 8 score of +0.83 (within the top 4.6% of schools in the country)

Mark Bedford, Headteacher at Twyford School commented "Twyford's most recent examination results are a product of the deeply aspirational community that we are. The staff and students deserve every credit for their role in making Twyford a place where all students can achieve so highly."

Schools in Ealing also celebrated some strong results this year. Ealing schools overall achieved the 3rd highest Progress 8 score in the country (+0.62). Of the 16 Ealing secondary schools who had Year 11 results this year, Ealing Fields is the highest performing school, Ada Lovelace is a close second, Twyford is third and William Perkin is 6th.

We are incredibly proud of the achievements of our students this year. Many have gone on to continue their studies within the Trust in our sixth forms at Ada Lovelace, Twyford and William Perkin as well as students who have moved to other schools and colleges in the local area to study a range of academic and vocational courses. The strong results they achieved at GCSE place them well for their next steps.
