Our entirely bespoke curriculum enables every individual girl to maximise her potential in public examinations. We are proud of our students and our teachers for achieving outstanding results year after year.
A-level results 2019
We achieved another set of fantastic results in 2019, with the proportion of grades at A*–B well above 75% for the third year running.
In Art, Design & Technology, Drama, Economics, French, Geography, History, Politics, Psychology and Religious Studies, all students were awarded exclusively A*–B grades.
Girls taking our highly successful Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) programme gained 65% A*–A grades. The EPQ, which is worth half an A-level, gives students the intellectual freedom to choose their own topic and experience university-style research for themselves.
The results meant that girls took up places on prestigious higher education courses all around the country, including:
- Geography at the University of Oxford
- Medicine at the University of Nottingham
- Pharmacy at University College London
- Languages, Cultures and History at the University of Leeds
- History at the University of Manchester
- Physiotherapy at King's College London
- Economics and Finance at Queen Mary University of London
- Psychology at Loughborough University

GCSE results 2019
More than two thirds of all GCSE grades were at 9–7, while girls once again shattered any academic gender stereotypes by reaching the highest standards in the full range of subjects. Across Biology, Chemistry and Physics, an average of 80% of grades were 9–7, with over 22% of girls being awarded a 9, the very top grade. Nationally, only about 4% of examination entries are given a 9.
Taking all subjects together, over 18% of grades were 9s, with a quarter or more of students achieving the best possible grade in Biology, Computer Science, English Language, Latin and Religious Studies.
The proportion of grades at 9–7 was at least 70% in the core disciplines of Mathematics, English Language and the three Sciences, along with five of our other GCSE subjects.

We are so much more than just excellent results, but these superb grades at GCSE and A Level show the grit, determination and intelligence of our girls, and their willingness to push themselves to excel in their learning. I am so proud of all they have achieved.Beth Dawson, Head
