Key Statistics

Top Performing West London College

Ealing Independent College produces excellent exam results and a strong student progress score year on year. In 2015 the College was announced as the best performing West London College in producing top grades, with 32% of A-Level students achieving AAB or higher in at least two facilitating subjects. Our results in 2016 and 2017 highlighted the hard work our teachers put into helping students progress academically and improve their grades to reach academic goals, with the College being amongst the top 5% in the country in helping students improve their grades. 

Being particularly known for our strong Science and Mathemathics Department, we are pleased to say that there were some particularly strong student performances in 2017. 22% of the students achieving A*/A in Chemistry, in addition to 24% achieving A*A in Mathemathics, and 27% achieving A*/A in Economics.  In these three subjects 70% of all the grades awarded were A*/B. 

Following last year’s changes to how data is presented and performance measured, further were made by the Department of Education in 2017 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%.

Whilst our consistently strong results signifies the high percentage of our students being guaranteed access to the Russell Group universities (45%), we are also delighted that as many as 70% of our entire student body gained access to their first or second choice university last year.

Understanding the Government School League Tables

Each year the Department of Education publishes the results of how schools across England perform at GCSE and A-Levels. You can view Ealing Independent College's performance summary here. It is important that students and parents understand that the criteria used to evaluate the results will dictate the outcome published to a certain degree. A good example of this is the exclusion of IGCSE in the published results; in 2014 IGCSE results were no longer included in the evaluated performance. This has meant that for many top schools across the country who have students taking the international equivalent of GCSE, the published results will not represent the entire student body performance. 

The published results is however a very helpful tool for families who are looking for the right College, and at Ealing Independent College we are proud of our strong position in the Government School League Tables as a top West London College that produces excellent results.
