Students were examined in a total of 24 subjects, of which 10 were the challenging IGCSEs. In over half of the subjects, 100% of grades were at B and above.
The results saw Sutton High School once again highlight its strength in STEM, with 93% of grades in Biology at A*–A and over three quarters of grades in Mathematics at A*–A.
There were also particularly good results for Religious Studies, Latin, Music and History, where the percentages of A*–A grades were 87%, 83%, 83% and 80% respectively.
Mrs Katharine Crouch, Headmistress, commented:
“Our examination results are consistently high and always significantly above the national average, so for this year’s GCSE group to achieve the best set of grades in five years is a fantastic achievement.
“The results are testament to the hard work and talent of the girls and their teachers, and I am very proud of them all.
“I would also like to pay tribute to all our Sutton High parents, whose support is vital to the work we do at school.
“I have no doubt whatsoever that this year group will have tremendous success in future, and we wish them well as they embark upon the next stage of their academic careers.”
