We are thrilled for our Sixth Formers who are celebrating an outstanding set of A Level results this year:
Girls are now preparing to enter world class universities of their choice.
Emma Alexander, last year’s Head Girl, is one of eight students this year off to Imperial College London, one of the top ten ranked world universities for Maths and Science.
Other girls are heading for the London School of Economics, Exeter, Warwick, Bristol and Edinburgh and UCL.
With Professor Malcolm Grant, Provost of UCL, joining us as our guest of honour at Speech Day and Prizegiving in November, we are delighted to have girls also taking up places at this prestigious London university.
Five girls are heading off to top universities and colleges in the USA including Tufts University Boston, Carnegie Mellon Pittsburgh, The George Washington University Washington, Parsons The New School of Design New York and Rhode Island School of Design.
Our girls are now looking forward to studying subjects as diverse as Accounting & Finance, Art & Design, Classics, Biochemistry, Economics, Law and Maths.
Headmistress Mrs Frances King said, 'This has been another very successful year. The girls have worked incredibly hard, gaining the highest grades in a wide range of subjects from Science and Maths to Art and Classics.
'They have also achieved these results while playing an active role in the sport, music, extra curricular and leadership opportunities at the school. This has helped to develop enthusiastic, confident and independent global citizens now ready to make the most of the opportunities for further study at top universities across the world.'
Our results are of course set against the backdrop of the independent sector as a whole. The Independent Schools Council (ISC) reports that pupils again performed tremendously, with an average of 18% of all entries graded A* (against a national average of 7.9%) with 51.4% receiving an A or A* (national average: 26.6%).
