Dfe Results 2017: EIC produces consistently strong exam results

Dfe Results 2017: EIC produces consistently strong exam results

On 25 January 2018 the Department of Education published the GCSE and A-Level performance of schools across England, and we are delighted to share that Ealing Independent College remains amongst the top in the country in securing academic progress for their students. With an average Progress Score of +0.37* for the last 3 years, this puts the College amongst the top 5% of schools and colleges in the country in helping students improve their grades.

Principal of Ealing Independent College, Dr Ian Moores, commented: “I am delighted to see that the students have performed very well again this year in the DfE Performance Tables. The consistency of a strong Progress Score is now a major feature of the College: this is a reflection of the strong teaching, monitoring and pastoral systems that create the very individual and special ethos of the College. The College has also performed creditably in the other key areas measured given that our intake is non-selective. Parents can be re-assured by the College’s performance and confident that students will reach their potential in the supportive academic environment we offer.”

Following last year’s changes to how data is presented and performance measured, further were made by the Department of Education this year with the most significant being the new Progress 8 and Attainment 8 GCSE measure. It focuses on the results of the student’s best eight subject in GCSE, including English and Maths. Last summer, GCSE students across the country also sat new and tougher exams in English and Maths, which were graded through the new numerical system from 9 to 1 (9 being the top grade). We are delighted to say that our GCSE students performed very well in these subjects, with 50% gaining Grade 5 or above in English and Maths. This is way ahead of the national average of 39.6%.

Ealing Independent College has always placed a strong emphasis on providing the best guidance and support for their students to secure academic progress. The consistently strong Progress Score and excellent individual student achievements is a testament to the hard work the Principal and teachers put into ensuring each and every student that joins the College reaches his or her true potential.
