Emily A and Alice are celebrating 2A* and an A grade, and Jessica 2A*s and a B. A further 6 students – Katy, Lucy, Paige, Tiggy, Imogen and Rosie – were delighted with A*AA grades. Laura and Niamh were thrilled with A*AB grades, while 4 more girls, Amy, Isabella, Molly and Jennifer, were successful in gaining a clean sweep of 3A’s. Future degree subjects range from Astro Physics to Law and Engineering to English, including 10% going on to study medicine or veterinary medicine, each girl has been inspired and encouraged to follow her own individual path. At Farnborough Hill, the girls are ambitious with their course and university choices, so it is tremendous that 95% of girls are going to their first choice of university proving that aspirations are met.
Mrs Alexandra Neil, Head, was delighted, praising the girls for their dedication to their studies: ‘I am extremely proud of all of the girls receiving their results today; they have achieved truly excellent grades which are testament to their hard work and tenacity. The fact that, overall, the grades are the best since 2007 is phenomenal and the staff should be commended for supporting the pupils to achieve such brilliant results. The girls are aiming high for their future careers and we are privileged that Farnborough Hill has played such a key role in setting them up to achieve these goals. We wish them every happiness and success for the future and will proudly follow them as they become the leaders of tomorrow.’
