Lower Sixth Presentation Evening

They jumped for joy when they tore open envelopes containing their GCSE results at the School last August.

GCSE Results 2008

The overall pass rate at grades A*-C – including English and the tougher International GCSE in Maths – was 100% with 96.5% of the girls achieving all A* and A grades.

The presentation of the certificates together with Records of Achievement in academic and extra-curricular activities such as sport and music was interspersed with songs and poetry and attended by proud parents and grandparents.
