Stellar GCSE Results for 2011!
Withington's GCSE students are celebrating more outstanding success in the 2011 public examinations. Out of a Year group of 75, all candidates took at least 9 full GCSE subjects plus one short course. There was a 100% pass rate in all subjects at grades A* to B, with 79.4% of all papers passed at the coveted A* grade. The School's pass rate at the two highest grades – A*and A – rose to 97.2% (from an already exceptional 96.4% in 2010).
A total of 60 girls passed all their GCSE subjects at grades A* or A. 45 girls passed 9 or more subjects at A* grades, with 28 girls gaining 10 A*s, six girls achieving 11 A*s and one girl earning a clean sweep of 12 A* passes.
Headmistress, Mrs Sue Marks, said, "We are all absolutely delighted for the girls, who are extremely well-motivated and who have worked very hard indeed to achieve their remarkable success. It is particularly pleasing to note that these exceptional results have been achieved in a year when so many girls were also taking part in extra-curricular activities, such as our whole-school production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat."
