Saint Martin’s girls were all smiles this morning as they picked up a fantastic set of GCSE results. Following hot on the heels of last week’s excellent A-Level results, the girls have achieved the highest grade of A* in an astonishing 24% of all entries. With 61% of all GCSE grades being A* and A, and 92% of all grades A* – B, Saint Martin’s students have a great deal to celebrate. This year’s results are in fact the best GCSE results for the School.
High achievers include Isabella Nicholson who is to be congratulated on gaining 10 A* grades, along with Alice Glover, Rosemary Holt, Ana Manolescu, Anya McCutcheon Wells, Elizabeth O’Connor and Lucinda Winn. Between them they have been awarded 46 A* grades and 21 A grades.
Some outstanding results came out of certain subjects; in Art and Photography 100% of all grades were A*/A, Physics 90% A*/A, Maths 71% A*/A and in English Literature a staggering 36% of all grades were at A*. This demonstrates excellence in a very wide range of subjects.
Head Miss Nicola Edgar praised the girls for their self-motivation and commitment, which has helped to produce these outstanding achievements. “We are all so delighted for our girls”, she said. “These brilliant results are the just reward for all their hard work, and they also reflect the fantastic support of the girls’ own families, as well as the excellent teaching and pastoral care they have received at Saint Martin’s. Staff and students alike are to be congratulated for their dedication. It is very pleasing to see so many of the year group staying on at Saint Martin’s to gain the further benefit of first class teaching and small class sizes, ensuring that they will fulfil their potential.”
Mrs Rachael Speirs, Head of Sixth Form commented: “The girls are to be warmly congratulated on their excellent results which are richly deserved. We look forward to welcoming them into the Sixth Form at the start of the new academic year. I have every confidence in their ability to work hard and succeed as they embark on the next exciting stage of their academic journey.”
