The Swaminarayan Independent School Achieves 4th Place in Independent School League Tables
Thursday 10 January 2008

On the basis of the 2007 Achievement and Attainment Tables for Key Stage 4 published on 10 January 2008, The Swaminarayan School was confirmed as the fourth best independent school in the latest GCSE league tables published by the Government. The rankings, determined by the average points score per pupil which in turn is based on points awarded for each grade classification, illustrates the exceptional performance by teachers and students at the school founded by His Holiness Pramukh Swami Maharaj in 1992.

The school was one of only 107 schools in England in which 100% of the pupils at the end of Key Stage 4 achieved the Level 2 threshold – equivalent to five GCSEs at grade C or above, including in English and Maths – and amongst the top 20 achievers across England based on the average student score.

The results are also supported by the school’s extensive contribution to community activities. As a result of the social and charitable work that the pupils have become involved with, they are equipped with the moral and social values as well as academic excellence to build successful future careers for a better society.

Congratulations to the pupils and staff of The Swaminarayan School for being amongst the top performing independent schools in the country.
