Our students have achieved another set of excellent GCSE results, with 79 per cent of entries graded A* (or 9 to 8). Almost 90 per cent of the year group achieved at least nine A and A* grades (or 9 to 7), with over half of the year group achieving at least nine A* grades (or 9 to 8). Just over 95 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 17 students achieving 11 A* grades (or 9 to 8).
Students have excelled across a wide range of subjects. In Chinese, Drama, French, Greek (Classical), Italian, Maths, Music, Physical Education, Religious Studies, Spanish and Higher Project Qualification, an impressive 100 percent of the cohort achieved A* to A grades (or 9 to 7). For the first time, students sat GCSE Physical Education and 100 per cent of candidates achieved an A* grade (or 9 to 8). Over 90 per cent of those studying French, Greek (Classical), Italian, Latin, Maths, Religious Studies and Spanish achieved an A* grade (or 9 to 8).
Headmistress, Ena Harrop said: “We are extremely pleased with our GCSE results this year. They reflect how hard the girls have worked and how well they have risen to the challenge of the reformed GCSEs. The girls should feel very proud of what they have achieved, especially given how many of them juggle their school work with extra-curricular commitments or other challenges. Exceptional results like these ones can conceal the real stories of determination and grit behind them.”
