Students studying at some of the top independent girls’ schools in the country thanks to a variety of bursary schemes are reaping the rewards today with a string of A*s in their GCSES.
Gloria George is the top performer in her school, Howell’s Llandaff, with 11 A*s. Gloria, who lives with her mum in Cardiff, joined Howell’s in Year 7 on an HSBC funded bursary, and has since blossomed into a confident, talented student.

Gloria is looking forward to the start of next term, when she will be a student at Howell’s College, studying Chemistry, Biology, Mathematics and French at A-level.
