Harriet Lee achieved 3 A*/A grades at A Level and her sister Martha achieved all A grades with 1B at GCSE.

Headmistress Dr Helen Stringer said: ‘I am so delighted for the girls. GCSEs are a vital first stepping stone on their journey to realising their dreams and ambitions, and all our girls are well and truly launched on the path.

“For the girls to achieve over two-thirds of their grades at A*/A is a marvellous achievement.

“This is a tribute to the excellent teaching, supported by superb pastoral care, that is a hallmark of the School.
