Congratulations to our A Level students who achieved spectacular results this year with 37% of grades at A* and 82% at A*/A.
Similar congratulations to our GCSE students who achieved an outstanding 59% of grades at A*, 99% at A*/B and 100% at A*-C.
Can there be a finer first job for a new headmistress than to record the joy of students celebrating first-rate GCSE achievements?
Despite Department of Education reshuffles and prognostications in the press of a nationwide drop in results, St Albans High School for Girls bucked the trend and enjoyed another outstanding year at GCSE.
A record-breaking 63% of students gained A* across all subjects, 90% gaining A*/A and 18 girls achieving clear A* grades across the board. With 98% of our students passing at A*-B, these results represent a remarkable achievement.
As a parent of a GCSE student this year, I am very aware of the complex matrix of support necessary to steer girls through two GCSE years and eight gruelling weeks of examinations. So my warm congratulations go to our girls on their stellar achievement; to their teachers for their unstinting encouragement and to our Year 11 parents, hovering benignly with cups of tea, post-it notes and good advice.
