Roedean is delighted with the girls’ successes in public examinations, making us the best girls’ school in Sussex. At a time when it is increasingly difficult to be awarded the top grades, over 40% of the Year 13 cohort achieved an impressive 3 or more A*-A grades at A2 level. In fact, 62% of all A2 grades at Roedean last year were at the highest level of A* and A, underlining the academic prowess of the girls; we are delighted that the girls’ hard work has borne fruit.
Students are leaving Roedean to go to high-ranking institutions, such as UCL, Imperial, and the Courtauld Institute, as well as universities abroad, to read varied courses, including Economics, History, and Aeronautical Engineering.
At AS level, well over a quarter of the year-group achieving at least 3 A grades, which is an outstanding achievement, and this bodes very well indeed for their future successes.
In the context of increasing rigour and challenge at GCSE level, Roedean is delighted with the excellent results of last year’s Year 11 cohort. A good number of girls deserve to be thoroughly proud that all of their hard work has resulted in outstanding grades: a fifth of the cohort achieved 7 A* grades or more, and 5 students were awarded 8 A* grades or more. These are outstanding performances, and these girls deserve our congratulations.
Top grades are the result of the girls’ positive and conscientious approach to learning, combined with targeted support from their teachers. I am delighted to see that all of the girls’ hard work during this year has paid off, and they thoroughly deserve their success – very well done indeed!
