Friend's son prepped for this school last year.

Whole day exams in English, Maths, Science, some NVR and VR.
He also sat for Slough/Langley/QE(Barnet), said prep was comparable to what was done for these schools' exams.

The school also sent practice papers which were similar to what was done in their exams. By all accounts, it is a very good school with solid teaching. They do GCSEs early as well. The boy's brother is in Yr 1o and doing early exams.

Just heard about this school when I looked at the league tables.

Pretty impressive achievement coming on top of extremely well reputed schools like St Pauls, Abbey etc!

Think have missed the boat for this DC but will surely consider for youngest one.

Which tables were these??? have to be careful as some schools doing IGCSE and these don't appear in the tables...

I love the way they've laid out the tables, giving the full results for each subject. Wish they'd do that for ALL schools!

I'm talking about the BBC League Tables.

Yes Snowdrops, this school seems to be very open about what and how it does (strange for an Indie!) :lol:

Just had a look at the BBC tables: for %5 A*-C GCSEs / % Bacc / A level poinst


Sri Swaminarayan was 100 / 70 /757.1
St pauls (boys) 0 / 0 / 1132

A levels rather better @ St pauls- I suspect like many Indies they do IGCSE so scores not shown for GCSE ... what was the other school?

I think most Indies hide their data... unlike Swaminarayan.
