Pupils from The Queen’s School are celebrating after almost a third of the year group achieved straight A*/A grades and well over half of the girls achieved eight or more A*/A grades each.
Forty-five per cent of the school’s GCSE examinations were passed at the A* grade with 73% at A*- A and 91% at A*-B.
Nearly a fifth of the girls were awarded the coveted new Level 9 for English in the reformed examinations, which puts them in the top 2% of the country according to Ofqual estimates and 82% of the school’s pupils achieved an A* or A in mathematics.
The school maintains its 100% pass rate for another year.
Headmistress Sarah Clark said: “The girls have really delivered a superb set of GCSE results this year and I could not be prouder of them for their efforts.
“With both challenge and support from our experienced teaching staff, they have prepared well and applied themselves admirably when the time came for the examinations. Well done to them all!”
