Perfect scores for Ealing school girl sisters
The personal success of two Ealing sisters is turning heads at Ealing’s top performing GCSE school*, St Augustine’s Priory. Manisha Thukral, 16 years of age, was awarded the perfect score of 10 A* GCSE grades. This outstanding achievement follows an equally impressive performance by Manisha’s sister, Ridhi Thukral, who last week learned that she had achieved 4 A* grades at A Level.
Against a backdrop of excellent results across the GCSE and A Level age range, the Thukral sisters’ success illustrates the merit of a single-sex environment in which girls are free to discover their own voice and pursue their intellectual curiosity.
Headteacher, Mrs Sarah Raffray observes, “The individual attention we provide each student is integral to the bespoke education on offer at St Augustine’s Priory. Manisha and Ridhi have different interests and aspirations, but each have realised their potential and I am proud to see them both excel in their chosen subjects.”
Ridhi, former Academic Scholar, who secured 10 A* GCSE grades in 2014, studied Mathematics, English Literature, History and Economics at A Level. Soon to begin higher education, Ridhi will read Philosophy, Politics and Economics at the London School of Economics.
Manisha was recently awarded the 2016 Academic Scholarship at St Augustine’s Priory for excellence in academia and will soon begin her A Levels at the school’s Sixth Form, Priory 6, where she will study Biology, Economics, History and Mathematics.
Manisha looks forward to benefitting from the school’s exciting capital development project which will see the extension of the state-of-the-art learning facilities, alongside new Sixth Form multi-media suites, study areas and careers programme.
