2018 GCSE Results

Our students once again returned an impressive set of results, in a year which saw the introduction of the reformed GCSEs.

With all results significantly above the national average, there was cause for celebration across the board. 50% of our students achieved the top grades in at least five subjects. Science results were particularly impressive: in Biology 88% of grades were 7-9 (A/A*), 55% of all Chemistry papers were graded 7-9 and for Combined Science the level was 67.5% at 7-9. Religious Studies achieved 92% of the grades at 7-9 and 100% 6-9

Congratulations to the students, all of whom have achieved even better results than they dreamed possible.

The Headmistress commented, “I am delighted with these impressive results. The students’ hard work and commitment have been well rewarded in what has been an uncertain and difficult environment with the reformed format of the exams. Congratulations also to our dedicated team of teachers who work tirelessly to help our students achieve these impressive results.”


2018 A Level Results

We are delighted that once again our Year 13 students have achieved an impressive set of A level results.

28% of all grades achieved were A*/ A (higher than the national average), 55% A*/B and 86% A*/C. The Extended Project Qualification entries once again achieved very impressive results with 67% graded at A* or A and 83% A*/B.

The girls now move on to a range of universities, including Liverpool, St Mary’s London, Birmingham, York, Cardiff and Exeter to study a wide range of subjects such as Dentistry, Law, English Literature, Equine Business Management, Politics and Economics, Real Estate Management, Criminology and History

These results are a tribute to the hard work of the girls and the strength of our teaching staff who work tirelessly with each individual to ensure they achieve their optimum results. A special mention goes to those girls with straight A*/A grades.

The Headmistress commented, “It is so good to see the girls set fair for the next stage of their lives, to see the validation of all the work done by them, their parents and their teachers and to see them going off proud and confident as they embark on the next stage of their lives”.
