It was with much excitement and anticipation that Notre Dame’s Sixth Form students today celebrated a record breaking set of A-level Results. 52% of all grades achieved were A* and A, double the national average and 10% higher than in 2017. 78% of girls gained A*- B and the girls achieved a 100% pass rate overall.
Mrs Anna King, Senior School Headmistress, said;
“To have gained such high results under the new reformed examinations system demonstrates the range and excellence of our teaching, the dedication of our teachers in supporting and encouraging every student and the perseverance and commitment of every girl. We are delighted”.
Notre Dame offers a broad range of subjects at A-level and the girls have accepted places at a diverse range of Universities to study an exciting array of courses.
Ella McIntosh was “ecstatic” to receive two A* and two A grades and is going to study Maths at Warwick University. Ex-Head Girl Manon Leary will be going to Durham to study Psychology.
Ellie Hampden-Smith was “over the moon” to receive and A* and two A’s and has accepted a prestigious apprenticeship at HM Treasury.
Jasmine Marshalll was “delighted” to receive three A*’s and has accepted a place at Surrey University to study Business Management. Her parents were thrilled and said: “Hard work and diligence has paid off and we are so proud of Jasmine and wish her all the luck in the world. Thank you to all the staff at Notre Dame who have nurtured her over the past 7 years”.
Janine Harber, Head of ND6 said:
“I am delighted for these amazing girls – each and every one of them deserves their success. They leave Notre Dame today as confident, independent young women with bright futures ahead of them”.
