Hard work pays off for A level students
GUILDFORD High School celebrated an outstanding set of A level results last week.
Some 43.3% of grades were A* at the independent day school for girls, with 97.5* of grades as A*-B.
In a year group of just 88, 30 students achieved three or more A*/A grades with 22 students achieving three or more A* grades.
“Our 2017 leavers are an inspirational year group,” said headmistress Fiona Boulton. “They are bright, talented and focused, not only academically but in sport, music and drama.
“These outstanding results, the outcome of their effort combined with excellent teaching and support, will allow them to pursue exciting opportunities and we wish them all great success for the future,” she added.
Meanwhile, at St Peter’s Catholic School ‘hard work, determination and resilience’ paid off with last week’s A level results.
A total of 38% of the students achieved A* to A grades, and almost one in five of students achieved A* and A grades.
“It is very exciting for our students and their hard work, determination and resilience has paid off,” said Peter Watson, head of Sixth Form.
In another improved figure, 64% achieved A* to B grades.
“More students than ever are now leaving St Peter’s and going to Russell Group Universities.
“We are incredibly proud of our students and of their results, they are great role models for other students,” Said Mr Watson.
St Peter’s Sixth Form is holding an Open Evening on September 28.
