2019 GCSE Results

There was great cause for celebration this morning as once again our students have returned an impressive set of GCSE results. With GCSEs now fully reformed and the majority of results resting on the final examinations, this year’s Year 11 cohort shone in their achievements.

A wonderful 63% of all grades were at levels 9-6/ A*-B. Half of our cohort achieved the very top grades in at least five subjects; 41% of all of the results were graded at 9, 8 and 7, A*/A and 98% of all results were at level 4/C or above.

Congratulations to all of the girls, from those who achieved a complement of top grades to those who worked hard to achieve results above their expectations.

Mrs Adams, the Headmistress commented, “I am so pleased for the girls and with the results that they have achieved. Their hours of hard work, dedication to keep improving on their performance and a real determination to succeed have been rewarded today. I am so proud of all of them; they can now look forward to the next step in their academic careers with great confidence.  Congratulations also to our brilliant team of teachers who work with such passion and dedication to help our students achieve these impressive results.”


2019 A Level Results

We are delighted that once again our Year 13 students have achieved an impressive set of A level results, with a further improvement on the excellent A level results of 2018.

This year, 37% of all grades achieved were A*/ A, 60 A*/B and 87% A*/C. The girls now move on to a range of universities, including York, Liverpool, Leeds, Southampton, Birmingham and Royal Holloway to study a wide range of subjects such as Medicine, Architecture, English Literature, Philosophy, Film and Television Studies, Business Management, Police Studies and Ancient 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.
