2015-2016

Exam results roll of honour for the academic year 2015-2016.

A level examination results

Overall the A level results were strong again across the College. Almost two-thirds of grades awarded were B or better which compares well with 2015. The consistency of the strong A level results that the College achieves year on year is now a hallmark and inspires our students with confidence and places the College amongst the leaders of Colleges of this type in London.

21% of all students achieved AAB or better which will still place the College among the top performers of colleges of this type in central and West London when the league tables are announced in January 2017.

The top 6 students were:

  • Mohamed:  A*A*AA will read Finance at LSE (A*s in Chemistry and Mathematics)
  • Hamze:  A*A*A will study Chemical Engineering at UCL.
  • Ben:  A*A*A will study Chemistry at Bristol (A*s in Chemistry and Biology)
  • Malcolm:  AAA will study Banking and International Finance
  • Haya:  A*AA will read Medicine in September 2017 (A* in Chemistry)
  • Michelle: AAA will read Biomedical Science at Newcastle

44% of the grades awarded in Chemistry were A* or A. These are exceptional statistics and well ahead of the national average; the very top independent schools in the country would be pleased with these results. Biology also achieved 70% A*/B which is tremendous. Government and Politics results were very strong with 75% A*/B grades.

Students who re-sat their A levels performed particularly well. Some of these include:

  • Sebastian re-sat Mathematics and Biology and achieved a 7 grade enhancement - DD to AA*. The A* was in Biology.
  • Michelle achieved a 6 grade enhancement in two subjects to AB, taking Chemistry up from an E to an A.
  • Manveen moved from UE to CC in Chemistry and Biology.
  • Andre scored AAB after a 4 grade enhancement.
  • Michelle achieved a 4 grade enhancement (CD to BA) the D to A was in Chemistry.

GCSE examination results

This year’s GCSE results have again been strong, with 67% of students achieving at least 5A*-C grades. The College has always managed to secure strong GCSE results, and this year is no exception. The value which the College has added to the results of students who enrolled in the College to improve their existing grades from previous schools is particularly pleasing this year, with our rigorous approach to monitoring and assessment proving very successful. 49% of all grades awarded were A*-B this year.

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


Hannah has performed incredibly well this year, obtaining 3 A* grades, 3 As and 2 B grades in her GCSE examinations. These achievements are even more impressive when it is considered that Hannah only joined the College in September of this Academic year, after having studied for the last year in Kerala in India. Hannah has shown that dedication, hard work and a faultless attendance record can lead to excellence across the subjects. Hannah managed to attain an A in Religious Studies, and she did so almost independently.


Riyal also excelled, attaining an outstanding 4 A* grades and two As. Again, this performance is superb, particularly when one takes into account the fact that she postponed her studies during the last academic year. She performed particularly well in Maths and all three Sciences, gaining A* grades.


Solomon joined the College from Drayton Manor School in September 2015, where he felt that he was underachieving. Solomon excelled this academic year however, managing to attain 3 A grades, 3 B grades and a C grade in his GCSEs.


Iman has thrived in the encouraging environment of the College. Having joined last summer from South Africa, she achieved an A grades in Biology and English Literature, B grades in History, Art and English Language and a C grade in Maths. Iman’s art work this year has been extremely praiseworthy, and the C grade in Maths was a real challenge for her, as she has always found the subject extremely difficult.

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. There were some real stand-out success stories this year:


Rehab arrived at the school in September 2015, having achieved some disappointing GCSE results (BCCDE). Through self-discipline, rigour and conscientious studying habits, she was able to lift her GCSE grades to three A* grades in Maths, Biology and Chemistry, one B grade and a C.


Nilufar also joined the College with the intention of raising her existing grades from the Ark Academy in Wembley, which she was not happy with. She took them from BBCCC up to A*A*ABBB, which has greatly improved her options for A Level study.


Serafina is another student who has managed to put past disappointments of underwhelming GCSE grades behind her. She managed to transform BBDD grades in her previous GCSE examinations into A*ABBCC this time around.


Jaspreet, previously at Guru Nanak Sikh Academy, came to Ealing with the intention of improving her disappointing grades in the core subjects from 2015, where she attained CDCC in Maths, English and Double Science. She has managed to attain an excellent improvement of ABBBB in English, Maths and now Triple Science.

The College also caters for students who want to make grade improvements in a small number of subjects. Yuka was unhappy with previous grades in English Language, Literature and Maths. She managed to increase them from BCD to AAC. Thomas came to the College in September 2015 from Cardinal Vaughan, having attained, amongst other results, CCDE in Maths, English Language and Literature and History. He raised his grades in these subjects to BBCC.

The results show the College’s unique approach to monitoring and assessment, along with the outstanding quality of teaching has led to tremendous achievement.
