EXTERNAL EXAMINATION RESULTS 2016-17
From the Headmistress: Mrs. Emma McKendrick
Our LV, UV, LVI and UVI examination candidates have achieved outstanding results once again this year and they deserve the highest praise for their achievements.
Members of the UVI leave us to take up places at top universities across the world with 88% going to Russell Group universities and a further 10% to world-class universities in the USA, Canada and Hong Kong. With 90% of the grades at A* to B, or equivalent, they are well placed for success. Their grades really are testament to the girls’ diligence and commitment to their studies. They will, I have no doubt, be great assets to their universities.
At GCSE, the girls achieved a record 60.4% of A* grades with over 84% reaching A*/A grades. All candidates should be extremely proud of their achievements and I know are very grateful to their teachers, Housestaff and, of course, their parents for all their support during their studies. As they move on to the next stage of their education, they should do so with well-founded confidence.
