Surrey Advertiser - - Front Page -

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.
