Three Ealing schools are celebrating an excellent set of GCSE results for 2013. St. Benedict's, St. Augustine's and The Cardinal Wiseman School have all exceeded expectations.

St Benedict's School achieved 23.9% of A* grades - the highest in the school's history.

The percentage of A grades was 53.3% and 48 pupils achieved 7 or more A grades including 24 who achieved 5 or more A* grades.

There were some outstanding individual performances headed by Stelios Souvaliotis and Daniel Makhoul who both achieved 10 A* grades and 1A, closely followed by Evie Gracie-Barnes, Xavier Crean, Sam Lewis, Oliver Lythgoe and Adrian Piga with 9 A*s and 2 As.

The average number of passes per pupil at Grades A*-C was 9.5.

Headmaster Chris Cleugh said: "This is our first fully co-educational GCSE year and I am delighted that both girls and boys have performed admirably. In fact, the girls have slightly outperformed the boys in the two highest grades A*/A. Congratulations to all our students."

St Augustine's Priory School in Ealing is celebrating another year of positive GCSE results achieved by the 43 pupils who sat the exams. Overall more than half of the GCSE entries delivered A* or A grades.

This year, 43 students in Upper V were entered for 417 examinations across 21 GCSE subjects and 100% of these students achieved five or more A*-C passes. The school offers a broad curriculum, with the students who sat Russian and Classical Greek all achieving As and A*s.

Sarah Raffray, head teacher at St Augustine's Priory since August 2012, says:

"This is the first set of examination results since my arrival at St Augustine's Priory and I am extremely proud of our pupils and their achievements this summer. They have worked tremendously hard and have been very positive, both in their studies and in their contributions to school life. The excellent achievements we have seen today reflect the hard work of staff and pupils. There have been many outstanding individual achievements but what matters most, is the progress of each girl and that she has achieved her very best.

"These results have been achieved within the framework of the school's supportive and nurturing culture which the recent ISI Inspection highlighted. The girls are always happy and fulfilled and will feel especially so today. My congratulations go to the pupils and my gratitude to the teachers and parents who have supported them so well in their preparations for these examinations. We look forward to seeing them flourish further in our Sixth Form."

The Year 11 students at The Cardinal Wiseman School have again excelled in this year's GCSE examinations. Highlights include: 80% of all students achieved 5 or more A*-C grades in traditional GCSE subjects 95% of students achieved A*-C in English 81% of students achieved A*-C in Mathematics 40 students achieved A*/A grades in seven or more subjects.

Notable individual achievements included Nicole Abou-Abdullah, Niamh Bradley, Kamila Fiedorczyk, James Goulbourn and Catherine Twoomey who were awarded 46 A* between them.
