A phenomenal set of GCSE results have again been gained by City of London girls today. Over 77% of all exams have been awarded A*, and over 96% have been graded A*-A.
The determination, dedication and hard work of our Year 11 students has led to great individual successes with a third of the group gaining at least ten A* grades, and 80% of the group gaining A*-A grades only. Two students gained an unprecedented twelve A* grades, and a further thirteen gained eleven A*grades each, which represents an outstanding academic achievement.
City of London School for Girls (CLSG) is particularly pleased that alongside impressive Science, Maths, Classics & English Literature marks, the girls have achieved exceptional grades in Arts and Humanities subjects. With fantastic artistic and essay writing skill on show, in the Humanities (Religious Studies, History and Geography) the cohort gained 97% A*-A, while Arts (Drama, Art and Music) managed a terrific 98% A*-A.
Another highlight is in new qualifications. It is the first year that CLSG has offered Computer Science GCSE and Higher Project Qualifications (HPQ). The school is therefore delighted that girls have achieved 100% A*-A grades in both; a testament to the skill of the teaching staff, and the dedication of the students.
Headmistress, Ena Harrop commented:
“We are thrilled with our GCSE results this year. This is one of the best set of results achieved by CLSG girls in the last five years. The girls worked with great spirit and determination and we are extremely proud of what every single one of them has achieved. They should all feel rightly proud of themselves. Such results open up so many possibilities for the girls in their future plans and set them up for a great start to their Sixth Form studies. I look forward to seeing what they will achieve in the next two years."
Well Done Year 11!
