Another year of outstanding A-Level student achievements at Ealing Independent College

17 Aug 2017

Ealing Independent College is celebrating another tremendously successful year with some outstanding individual A-Level student performances, cementing its position as a leading independent college in West London. The strong exam results achieved is in spite of the changes to A-Level exams, with both legacy and reformed courses running this year, putting more pressure on both students and teachers. In line with last year, 15% of the grades awarded were A*/A, with well over 50% of total grades were A*/B. The overall pass rate at the College remains at 99.3%, well above the national average.

There were some particularly strong student performances in Chemistry, 22% of the students achieving A*/A, in addition to Mathematics with 24% achieving A*A, and 27% achieving A*/A in Economics.  In these three subjects 70% of all the grades awarded were A*/B. Arina from Russia, gained her desired A* in Mathematics, in addition to B’s in Economics and Further Mathematics, and is delighted to be going to University College London (UCL) in September to do a joint degree in Mathematics and Economics. “I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at EIC, and am so thankful for all the support and guidance from my teachers.”  

Principal Dr Ian Moores said: “I am delighted that the College has produced another year of exceptional A-Level results. The College shows consistently strong results year on year, which I believe is due to the approach we take and the learning environment we provide here. Many students who join us with low grades from former schools have left with results they could only have dreamed about. A great example this year is Rajan Banger who joined two years ago with three U grades at AS from another independent sixth form college in Bayswater, and has now left with AAB at A-Level, enabling him to gain a place at his first choice university, Queen Mary University London. There are many other stories like his at EIC. We have successfully navigated the new linear examination system this year to deliver a remarkable value added score overall. The staff and students should be very proud of this achievement.”

In January this year, EIC was announced as being amongst the top 35 schools in the country for securing strong academic progress for students, with a value added score of +0.60. Helping students improve their grades and reach their true potential is something the College takes great pride in, and there were some truly remarkable stories this year.

Oscar Thatcher joined the College with DDE grades from his former school, and achieved ABB grades at EIC after a one year intensive A-level course. He will be studying Biology at University of Manchester this September. 

Thomas Harper joined the College with BDD grades from his former school at AS Level. He achieved A*A*A* in Chemistry, Mathematics and Physics. Thomas says: “I want to thank the College and Dr Moores for all of the support and guiding influence throughout the year. It has been an honour and a pleasure to be a part of the College. Words cannot express the thanks I owe everyone at EIC.” 

Ben Chippendale had underperformed at his previous school at A-Level. After his year at EIC he improved by 5 grades overall and is now able to study Geography at Cardiff University.
