Ealing Independent College achieves excellent GCSE results

Posted on: 20 Aug 2015

Following on from the great A-Level results Ealing Independent College achieved this year, the College’s GCSE results have also equalled the best results ever produced with, 83% of students achieving 5A*-C grades including English and Mathematics; 20% ahead of the national average. Whilst the College has always managed to secure strong GCSE results, particularly when viewed in comparison to other Colleges in West London, the improvement this academic year is particularly pleasing as top grades are down on a national basis.  

Principal, Dr Ian Moores, said, “Despite the national picture of fewer top grades at A-Level and GCSE, the College has produced outstanding results with more students than ever achieving A* grades. I am delighted for the students and grateful to the committed staff." 

Amongst the Year 11 cohort, there were some tremendous individual performances, detailed below:

Tri Nguyen has performed incredibly well this year, obtaining 4 A* grades, 3 As and a B grade in his GCSE examinations. These achievements are even more impressive when it is considered that Tri came to the school in 2013, one week after arriving from Vietnam with limited English skills and that he has also completed his GCSEs one year early, at the age of 15. Tri has shown that dedication, application and a faultless attendance record can lead to excellence across his subjects.

Riya Shah also excelled, attaining an outstanding 2 A* grades, four As and 2 B grades, and in the process, achieving the English Baccalaureate combination of subjects. She performed superbly in English, Maths, obtained A*AA in Biology, Chemistry and Physics, Geography and French. Riya, along with Tri, did not drop one mark in her ICT paper 1.

Nikita Kochhar managed to build on some very strong results this year, having already attained an A* in Maths at the end of year 9, and GCSEs in Spanish and Photography. This year, she achieved 2 A* grades in Biology and Chemistry, three As in English Language, Literature and Physics, and a B in Geography.

Sean Tang is another example of a student who has made an extremely successful transition from overseas, helped by the welcoming environment of the College. Having left the American Independent School in Taiwan last summer, Sean managed to obtain an A* in Biology, an A in Maths, two Bs and two C grades in a range of subjects.

Likewise, Taylor-Drew Thomson has thrived in the encouraging environment of the College. Having joined last summer from the Wykeham Collegiate school in Pietermaritzburg, South Africa, she achieved an A* in Biology, A in Geography, a B in History and two C grades in Maths and English. What is perhaps most pleasing is the C in Maths. Taylor-Drew had identified the subject as ‘a block’ and had left her former school with grades in the subject below 30%, but the intensive support she received in Maths throughout the year resulted in a remarkable improvement.

As well as a fantastic performance from our Year 11 students, many students embarked on a one-year intensive GCSE course with the intention of improving on disappointing performances in their former schools. Thanks to a greater set of results, these students are now in a far better position to approach further study.

The following students deserve to be commended for their efforts over the academic year:

Juddan Chaudary arrived at the school in September 2014, having achieved some very disappointing GCSE results (CCCCDDEFG) at Drayton Manor School. Through self-discipline, rigour and conscientious studying habits, he was able to lift his GCSE grades to two A grades in Biology and English, and three Bs in History, Maths and Chemistry. He now intends to study A Levels at the College.

Dirren Patel enrolled at Ealing Independent College having underachieved at his former school. He attained CDDDDEEEF and wanted to give himself a better chance of moving onto higher education. Through an improved attitude and good attendance throughout the year, and at special revision sessions, Dirren was able to improve to A grades in Biology and Chemistry, B grades in Maths and Physics and a C in English.

Strong performance at GCSE provides an excellent foundation for AS and A2 level studies and the College is very proud of the results achieved by this year’s GCSE cohort. The results show that a combination of the strong work ethic instilled throughout the College’s learning environment, along with the outstanding quality of teaching has led to tremendous achievement.
