“I am very proud of all our staff and students today. We produce excellent results year after year, but the aim is always to ensure that each individual girl can realise her goals.

“Our students are exceptionally well-prepared for the next step in their academic journey, not least through our award-winning careers service, which offers one-to-one UCAS support from application to acceptance.

“We also run a highly successful Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) programme, which gives girls the intellectual freedom to choose their own topic and enables them to experience university-style research for themselves. This year, 65% of our EPQ grades were A*-A.

“I wish all our girls the very best for the bright futures they have ahead of them. We hope they will come back to visit and share their achievements with us.”
