THE quality of academic and other achievements is excellent at St Augustine’s Priory, inspectors found.

A review of the Ealing Catholic independent school for girls was carried out by the Independent Schools Inspectorate last month.

Other key findings were that pupils demonstrated outstanding attitudes towards learning, were articulate and reflective and achieved a high level of success in sporting, academic and creative activities.

The report also commented favourably on leadership skills, respect and tolerance for other cultures and a sense of self-esteem.

Headteacher Sarah Raffray commented: “Our staff buy into what the inspectors recognised as a culture and ethos like a stick of rock - running all the way through our community.”
