Manor House School in Bookham, Surrey is best known for its’ ‘individual approach to academic success’ and this was certainly in evidence this morning. Shouts of delight could be heard around the School as pupils and their parents collected a magnificent set of GCSE results, despite a year of uncertainty and increased challenge under the new grading system.
Students surpassed expectations to deliver another year of fantastic academic results. Ms Tracey Fantham, Headteacher, said: ‘My congratulations go to all students and staff on their tireless commitment to achieving academic excellence for each and every pupil by working individually with every girl to produce the best possible set of personal academic results. I am extremely proud of each and every one of our Year 11 pupils who can now progress on to their chosen Sixth Forms including Reeds, St John’s, St George’s and Charterhouse. “
Headline figures include; 62% of all grades at 9-7/ A*- A, 37% of all grades at 9-8 / A*- A and 81% of all grades at 9-6 / A* – B – continuing to show the academic progress and focus of teaching and learning at the Surrey Girls’ School.
Ms Fantham added: “I am delighted that 15% of all our grades are the elusive 9 compared to the 4% national statistic published on the BBC news this morning. Not only that, but 100% of our pupils achieved 9-7 / A*- A in six different subjects. This is an amazing achievement. My thanks go to all parents for their continued support.”
