Many departments achieved outstanding results including Art & Design, Classical Civilisation, Product Design, Drama & Theatre Studies, English Language, English Literature, Geography, Government & Politics, Latin, Further Maths, Music, Religious Studies, Spanish and Textiles.

Ms Heidi-Jayne Boyes, Head at Wakefield Girls’ High School, said:

“These results are testament to our students’ – and our staff’s - hard work and effort over the last two years and I am delighted to see the girls being rewarded for this.

We know that the reformed A-Levels are rigorous and challenging and I am very proud of all of our girls. This year’s cohort has chosen exciting and varied pathways for the next stage of their journeys, with over one third of girls going on to read STEM based subjects at university.

I would like to wish all the girls the very best of luck for the next stage of their lives whether this is heading in to employment, taking a gap year or going to university. Whatever they are choosing to do, I know they will do it to the best of their ability, that they will continue to flourish and I hope, be very happy.”
