Exciting career paths await students of The Queen’s School, with 75% earning places at their first choice of university.

More than 70% achieved an A* or A, nearly 80% of all grades passed were A*-B and the independent school for girls continued with its 100% pass rate.

Interestingly, there is almost a 50/50 split between those going on to study arts, languages and humanities subjects and those studying sciences, engineering and maths and technology-based subjects.

Headmistress Sarah Clark said: “The hard work, dedication and ambition shown by our girls really demonstrate how education works at its best.

"It is about inspiring young minds so that they truly believe there is a place for them in the world where they can thrive and develop the skills and knowledge they have learnt at school.

“We are very proud of the efforts of each and every one of our pupils and of the teachers who inspire, develop and support them to achieve their best.”
