I am immensely proud of both our GCSE and A Level students who have been through a lot this year. At A Level this year. 71% of grades awarded were A* or A and 25% of the year group achieved straight A*/As, including Rani (A*A*A*A* and A* in EPQ), who is heading to Queen’s College, Oxford, to read Philosophy, Politics and Economics; Eva (A*A*A*), who will take up her place at Newnham College, Cambridge, to read Archaeology; and Kiana (A*A*A and an A in EPQ) who has been awarded a scholarship to study Medicine at Leicester. GCSE results painted a similar picture with 23% of results being Grade 9, 48% Grades 8/9, and over a third of the year group achieving straight 9-7 Grades (the equivalent of A*/A in the old letter grading system). Well done to both students and staff at Brighton Girls who have every reason to feel proud.
