School profile

Paddington Academy

Paddington Academy is the lead school for United Teaching National SCITT which offers salaried and non-salaried training routes for trainee teachers across our partnership and placement schools. Our mission is to ensure that every student is well-educated, has the opportunity to attend university, and is able to lead a happy and fulfilled life. Our focus is on outstanding learning for students, education with character and bringing out the ‘best in everyone’. We believe in a relentless focus on high achievement and our culture is built on foundational values of ‘excellence, hard work and integrity’.
We are clear that there are no excuses for underachievement. We aim to identify barriers that may be standing in the way of achievement, understand them in relation to our context and focus on breaking them down. We specialise in knowing our community and how best to support our learners.
As the lead school for United Teaching, we know the impact of great teachers on student progress and learning. We use evidence to inform our teaching practices and professional development to ensure we are striving for excellence within our subject curriculum and classroom practices, recognising that we can all use feedback to improve our practice.
