Examination Results 2016

Our 2016 GCSE and A Level students have all excelled themselves and we are so very proud of them. The examination results this year reflect the outstanding ability and hard work of our students. All the students worked hard to secure their grades whether those were A*, A, B or C grades. I would like to thank you as their parents and the teaching staff for all you have done to support the students in their examination years.

As you may already have seen in the national press, this year’s GCSE results place the school as the ninth highest performing girls’ state school in the country. Our A Level candidates also performed superbly, gaining grades that ensured the large majority secured their first choice University destination. The GCSE results showed an increase in the A*/A results from last year and the % A* results are the best ever.  Year 12 students were very excited to hear this.

As well as reflecting the ability and hard work of your daughters and the support you give them as parents, these results are testament to the expertise and dedication of our inspirational teachers and the supportive pastoral care of tutors and Heads of Year. I would particularly like to thank Mrs Haskins (nee Meade) who has been Director of Sixth form during Mrs John’s maternity leave, Ms Hawkins (Head of Year 13), Mr Reeve (Head of Year 11) and Mrs Johns who was in over the summer advising girls as to their next steps.
