“We are delighted to be celebrating two thirds of our results at the highest grades, A*- B. The girls have had to meet the challenge of tougher A levels, as they have completed the newly reformed courses in the vast majority of subjects this year, and I am incredibly proud of how well they have done. These results are testament to the hard work of students and staff alike, when even greater commitment is now needed to achieve the highest results.
Many departments achieved an outstanding 50% or more grades at A*/A including Art & Design, Product Design, Geography, German, Latin, Mathematics, Further Maths and Religious Studies.
It was super to see the girls open their results envelopes this morning and to celebrate their achievements with them. There was much to celebrate, with most girls getting in to their first choice of university.
I wish the girls the very best of luck as they now take their next steps. Whether they are entering the world of work, embarking on a gap year or heading off to university; I hope each of them will be happy on their chosen path but have every confidence they will be successful.”
A special mention must go to the 13 girls who achieved at least three A levels at grade A*/A. They were: Grace Anderson, Charlotte Barker, Ellie Bottomley, Aoife Budge, Sophie Dobson, Lizzie Fraser, Emma Harpin, Sophie Ingram, Neelam Majumder, Libby Morrell, Zoya Rehman, Jemima Sinclair and Anna Woolhouse.
