The headteacher of Northampton School for Girls has said she “could not be more proud” of the GCSE grades achieved by pupils.
Results show that 37 per cent achieved the English Baccalaureate, 80 per cent achieved five A* to C grades and 97 per cent achieved five GCSEs at grades A* to G.
The number of students achieving five A* to C, including English and Maths was 64 per cent, although this was down from 70 per cent last year.
Top performing students included Lauren Woolley with 15 A*s, Sofie Osmani with 10A* and two A grades, Megan Coulson with 7A* and five A grades, Jemima Phillips with six A* and six A grades, Tiana Gordon with three A*s, eight As and a B and Arianne Delos Santos with nine A* and four As.
Headteacher, Julia Harley said: “I could not be more pleased with the way our girls have worked for these grades. They have shown such determination and deserve to feel very proud of themselves. They are a fantastic year group.”
Deputy Headteacher, Carly Waterman said: “Once again we are delighted that so many of our girls have achieved the results they wanted. It’s wonderful that they have achieved what they need to take their next steps. Our thanks must go to the parents, carers and teachers who have supported our girls all the way through.”
Over three quarters of students choose to stay on to NSG’s sixth form, with others securing places at college or in apprenticeships.
Particular praise is given to Courtney King who achieved grade Cs in English Language, English Literature, maths and textiles and is going to college to study beauty and to Finlay Davison who achieved grade Cs in maths, English and ethics and philosophy and a B in food technology. Special mention is also made to Jazmin Bass who achieved two merits, eight Bs and three Cs and Caitlin Behan whose results included two Distinctions and two Cs.
Deputy Headteacher, Val Hodson, said: “Each and every one of our girls deserve congratulations, but we have particular admiration for those who have remained determined in the face of life’s obstacles.”
