GCSE Results Day…
… at St Augustine’s Priory
GCSE results day on Thursday 20th August proved that the girls of St Augustine’s Priory consistently achieve phenomenal GCSE results. Last year, we were ranked the top performing school for GCSE results in Ealing (Source: DfE league tables, January 2015). This year, our results are the strongest since 2011.
Nearly 30% of our GCSE grades are A*s and As. A quarter of all grades are A*s. The most commonly occurring grade in the cohort is A.
Our rising Sixth Form scholars, Aneae Rodriguez, Aliyah Ahmad and Simran Bal, excelled themselves, notching up 20 A*s and 12 As between them. Equally impressive was Rebecca Ball with 9 A*s and 3 As and Claudia Bergin with 6 A*s and 3 As. We look forward to these talented and hardworking girls taking our Sixth Form from strength to strength in September.
Other achievements of note were Anna Szyszko who achieved a phenomenal 11 A*s and 2 As, Emma Loffhagen who achieved an outstanding 11 A*s, Marie Freely who achieved 8A*s and 3As and Monica Hanna, who achieved 6 A*s and 4 As.
Individual subjects had much to celebrate. Proving that single sex girls’ schools deliver the top scientists, nearly three-quarters of our IGCSE triple scientists achieved A* or A. 81% of triple science Biology entries were A* or A and 77% of triple science Physics entries were A* or A.
90% of Latin candidates achieved A* or A and 100% of Music candidates achieved the same. Nearly 70% of French, History and Astronomy results were A* or A. Over 60% of Triple Science Chemistry and Religious Studies entries scored A* or A.
The Headteacher, Mrs Sarah Raffray commented:
“Last year our GCSE results were outstanding and ranked us best performing in Ealing; once again, our girls have attained record grades including in the more challenging IGCSE Science subjects as well as across the breadth of subjects, with the highest recurring mark across the entire cohort being A. As a small single sex girls’ school we know we are uniquely able to give our pupils tailored academic support combined with the tools for building resilience to challenge, as these results suggest. As always, these excellent achievements reflect the hard work of staff and pupils. There have been many outstanding individual achievements but evidence of progress of each girl and that she has achieved her very best across a wide breadth of subjects remains the most rewarding aspect.”Senior
