Wakefield Girls’ High School has announced another stellar set of A-level results, with 29% of students earning A* grades, 63% of students celebrating straight A* and A grades awarded in three or more subjects and 85% of students achieving grades A* to B. This follows an unprecedented 18 months’ period of blended learning.
The Teacher-Assessment process applied this year has enabled all teachers to observe student performance over a much longer period and in a rather more complex way, taking into account lots of different pieces of work and arriving at a holistic judgement.
Headteacher Heidi-Jayne Boyes praised students saying: “We are delighted for our students. This cohort have demonstrated grit and determination; they have earned these results’ and deserve them. We congratulate them and add enormous thanks to our teachers and support staff who have worked tirelessly to ensure our students have been supported throughout this last year of disruption and difficulty. At Wakefield Girls’ we tailor our teaching and learning and, as a result, the outcomes are excellent. We now look forward to seeing what all our students will go on to achieve next and we are excited for them.”
A special mention goes to 26 girls who achieved impressive multiple top grades - 3 or more A-Levels at grade A*/A grades overall: Mailika Bhamji, Annabel Bond-Sampson, Kyne Bordon, Huda Chowdhery, Ruth Gardiner, Aymah Haleem, Qurat Hayat,Grace Herrington, Rosie Higgins, Sasha Hildyard, Inaya Hussain, Ella Jackman, Tara Jayawardena, Jennifer Li, Madison Marner, Millie McDade, Lucy McKinlay, Niamh Morris, Ayesha Qarshi, Sienna Sekhon, Sarah Shah, Charlotte Tyzzer- Smith, Nyle Usman, Aminta Utting-Simon, Heather Watson and Eloise Wooley.
