Prior’s Field Fifth Formers are today celebrating superb IGCSE Mathematics results, having taken the examination five months early; 55% of grades were A* and 100% A*- C. Additionally some of the same students also sat early examinations for Level 2 Award in Statistics, with 100% pass rate.
Pupils at the Godalming-based school, for girls aged 11-18, work hard and are ambitious, but their high achievement comes without unnecessary stress. ‘Our school ethos is to encourage girls to strive for academic distinction while maintaining a healthy outlook’, explains Head Tracy Kirnig ‘This approach is central to all our pupils’ successes’.
The results speak for themselves and a recent review in the Good Schools Guide also ratified this philosophy ‘A century may have passed but the aim to turn out resilient young women, capable of achieving the maximum possible in the outside world, remains the same. It is still a school where ‘it is cool to try out new things’, and the head is confident that the well-equipped young adults that leave are recognisable as the children that arrived five or seven years earlier’.
