GCSE Results 2013

Best GCSE results in 10 years

We are thrilled to announce the best GCSE results for a decade at Roedean. Among the 62 candidates:

  • A* increased from 33% in 2012 to 37%
  • A* - A increased from 62% to 69%
  • A* - C increased from 84% to 99%

Sixteen girls achieved A*s and As in all their subjects – well done to Francesca, Aanya, Maria, Hindy, Caroline, Allenis, Amy, Cherrie, Maria, Cynthia, Onton, Marisa, Kitty, Tamsin, Reika and Julia.

As ever, academic success is only one element of life at Roedean and the girls above also perform to impressive standards in Roedean’s packed sport, drama and dance programme.

‘We have long believed that happy girls, with a range of interests outside their academic studies, achieve best’, said Frances King, Headmistress.

On a very successful day overall, special congratulations must go to academic colleagues in the Art, Biology, Chemistry, Maths and Music departments, where 50% or more students achieved A*s.

This completes a superb summer for the Music department, who have two leavers going to the country’s leading conservatoires (Royal College of Music and Trinity) next month.

Veronica Fewkes, Head of Music, says that the mutual support and close friendships in the orchestra and choirs this year was crucial. ‘These were fantastic groups to teach, with accomplished composers as well as performers. The girls worked incredibly hard and I am so pleased they have their rewards.’
