Harrogate Ladies’ College announced outstanding GCSE results which saw the number of A* grades increase for the third year running to 28 per cent.
This year’s results represent a 38% increase in A* grades and come on the back of increases in the previous 2 years. Pupils achieved an overall pass rate of 100 per cent and 54 per cent of all grades were A*to A.
Seventeen percent of pupils achieved a clean sweep of A* to A grades in all of their subjects.
Thirteen subjects achieved 65 per cent or more A* to A grades across the board including Chemistry, Physics, Biology, English Literature, History, French and Religious Studies.
Principal, Sylvia Brett said, “This is the third year running that our GCSE grades have increased. Today’s results are a real testament to the hard work of our girls and the quality of our teaching.
“The size of our school means that we can work closely with individual students to support them and I’m sure that this personal attention is evident in our results”.
“The girls have achieved amazing results and they should be really proud of themselves, as I am of them. Their results will provide them with a solid foundation as they move forward to more specialised A level studies and I’m sure that they will be equally as successful in these.”
Among those celebrating today were Nicole Brocksom who achieved an extraordinary 10 A*s and 1 A; Nancy Song with 9 A*s and Jess Ashcroft who achieved 8 A*s and 2 As.
Nicole said, “I’m so pleased, it’s been such a nerve racking wait! I’ve had amazing support and encouragement from my teachers and I can’t wait to move up to Sixth Form”.
