“Pupils’ achievement is exceptional.” ISI Report 2015
Our Year 13 leavers celebrated an excellent set of exam results in 2019. The cohort achieved a 100 per cent pass rate across all subjects with 43 per cent of entries graded A*.
79 per cent of entries were graded A* or A. Sixty per cent of students achieved three or more A* or A grades and 99 per cent of all entries were graded A* to C.
As well as achieving excellent academic results, the cohort have taken part in a wide range of extra-curricular activities. These include achieving their silver or gold Duke of Edinburgh awards, as well as music and drama performances and extensive fundraising. Additionally, a number of girls have achieved outstanding sporting achievements alongside their studies.
Headmistress, Mrs Ena Harrop said: “We are extremely proud of what every single one of the girls has achieved: they have worked tremendously hard and showed that the new A Level qualifications play very much to their strengths. They show once more how much genuine passion and determination for learning City girls bring to their studies. More importantly, in their time with us, they have grown into self-aware, well rounded and socially conscious young women with a real desire and drive to be a force for good. It has been a privilege for us to both teach them and learn from them. We wish them the very best for the future."
Our students have achieved a record-breaking set of GCSE results, with the highest ever proportion of entries: 83 per cent graded A* (or 9 to 8). 94 per cent of the year group achieved at least nine A and A* grades (or 9 to 7), with 62 per cent of the year group achieving at least nine A* grades (or 9 to 8). Just over 94 percent of entries were graded A* to A (or 9 to 7).
The school is also celebrating many individual successes, with two students receiving 12 A*s (or 9 to 8) and a further 14 students achieving 11 A* grades (or 9 to 8).
Students have excelled across a wide range of subjects. 100% of students taking Computer Science, French, Music and Physical Education achieved A*.

Our new Headmistress, Jenny Brown, said: “These stellar GCSE results say so much about the qualities of our strong, fun and hardworking students. We warmly congratulate the Year 11 s and our staff who supported them so well over the years.
"Behind such outstanding collective success are the commitment, independent thought and determination of so many individuals. We celebrate with them all the exciting learning these results represent as well as the many ways in which this year group participates so enthusiastically in school life both in and beyond the classroom.”
