There was much excitement and lots of smiling faces on GCSE results day. Amidst the confusion over the new grade system the results that we achieved were very impressive.
More than 50% of all of the results were graded at the A*/A and 9, 8 and 7 levels and over 80% A*-B and grades 9-6. 45% of our students achieved at least five A*/A grades and nearly 60% of the girls achieved A*-B and 9-6 in seven or more subjects.
Seven subjects, Biology, Chemistry, Business and Economics, Geography, Music, Spanish and Further Maths all achieved A*-B for all entries. Maths and English, which are both under the new banding system, saw several girls achieving grade 9s, meaning that nationally these girls are in the top 3.5% and 3.3% of results respectively.
Congratulations to the girls who achieved straight A* and A grades in their subjects, and also to those who worked hard to achieve results above their expectations.
Mrs Ross, the Headmistress commented, “I am so delighted with the results that the girls have achieved. Their hard work and commitment have been well rewarded in what has been an uncertain and difficult environment. Congratulations also to our dedicated team of teachers who work tirelessly to help our students achieve these impressive results.”
