Best GCSE Results in 8 Years

There were celebrations today amongst our Year 11 girls, as they achieved St Mary’s best GCSE results in eight years.

More than 85% of girls received A*-B and over 60% gained A*-A grades.  28% of all grades were A* or 8-9, the highest grades possible in the new GCSE grading system, compared with the national average of 10%.  Across the year group, A* was the most common grade achieved.

Dr Chris Enos, Deputy Head (Academic), said: “These are excellent results and we are extremely proud of our girls, particularly against the significant backdrop of changes to the qualifications this year.  St Mary’s is a non-selective school and many of the girls today have been with us since they were 11 years old, making tremendous progress.  The girls will now go on to study a broad range of A level subjects in our sixth form, moving into our stand-alone sixth form house, Mary Ward, to study more independently in preparation for university and beyond.”
