The Swaminarayan School in London, UK has topped the national performance table of independent schools for GCSE results.
The table using data from the Department of Education is based on the average points score per pupil, which, for GCSE results at the School, was an impressive 658.7. Each grade carries points ranging from 58 for an A* to 16 for a G. The score is equivalent to 11 A* passes per pupil, with 100% of students recording at least 5 A*-C grades.
The School also performed strongly in the Government’s new English Baccalaureate – which marks out pupils who gain A* to C grades in English, Mathematics, two sciences, a foreign language, and either History or Geography.
This recognition follows the record GCSE & A-Level results at the School in September 2013.
Head of the Senior School, Mr Nilesh Manani, spoke of his “delight and pride” on behalf of the School for the achievement. “I know the pupils, teachers and parents have worked extremely hard to achieve this standard and I would like to thank everyone for this outstanding result.”
The excellent academic results are complimented with a variety of other awards that have been conferred upon the School. Most recently, the School was presented with the NACE Challenge Award for “helping pupils achieve their best”. The Prep School has also previously been accredited with an award from the Cognitive Education Centre for being a “Thinking School”, and itself also being ranked among the top in the country.
