Southfields Academy – Southfields’ hidden secret

Students and staff at Southfields Academy had a lot to celebrate this summer.  Our 6th Form’s A Level pass rate was 100% for the third year running with A*-C grades coming in at 80% and 23% A*-A.  Mathematics, Further Mathematics and Economics results were particular strengths.  The results of the new style A Levels were even stronger than those of the old style exams.  And most importantly 110 of our Year 13s have accessed their first choice higher education place, many at Russell Group universities.

Our Year 11’s GCSE results were our best ever and considering the increased rigour of these exams and the challenges that some of our students face it makes these results all the more fantastic.  Our English and Mathematics results are our best ever at 68% A*-C.  Our 5+ A*-C with English and Mathematics came in at 63%, a 20% improvement on last year’s figure.  In terms of the new measures by which schools’ exam results are judged, on average every single exam taken was graded a third of a grade higher than expected based on the students’ Key Stage 2 performance.  As for specific subject areas that stood out, our Further Mathematics results of 100% A*-A are an astounding success.

Our results have demonstrated the value of the amount of care and attention given to every single student.  We don’t expect our students to fit into a standard curriculum, we tailor the curriculum to fit each student’s strengths so that he or she can shine in their own way.

Academic success is only part of the story at Southfields Academy though.  We nurture and develop individual talents whether they are musical, sporting, creative or in the performance arts.  Our many successful former students are testament to this including Michail Antonio (West Ham footballer recently called up to play for England), Malachi Kirby (actor who has recently received much acclaim for his performance in the recent version of Roots) and Kenny Annan-Jonathan (whose own fashion label, Playdot Apparel is a favourite of many music stars).

While our results are impressive, our focus remains on ensuring that each of our students is supported and challenged and how we can continue to give our students the best education possible.
