Many congratulations to all our A level students on their excellent results; it has been another fantastic year. New records have been set this year with 50.5% of grades achieved being A*- B and 22.3% of grades being A*- A.
Headteacher, Ms Fox, expressed her delight with the AS and A2 results: “This year’s results are a great tribute to and fitting reward for the girls and staff who have worked tirelessly to ensure potentials have been met and exceeded. Thank you to parents without whose support the achievements would not have been possible. We wish our girls the very best possible success as they find the wings to soar to even greater heights.’
We are extremely proud of the achievements of all our girls, but particular mention must be given to:
