We are exceptionally proud of our Fifth Year girls and the GCSE results that they have received today, which are consistently impressive across the board, demonstrating strong ‘value added’ despite the adverse circumstances of the past 18 months.
The year group have consistently worked incredibly hard, both during time in school and extended periods of remote learning, and the strong relationships with their committed teacher, where each girl is well known, have no doubt benefitted them at this challenging time.
After their assessment period in May, the year group embarked on a busy and diverse post-GCSE programme including a ‘Bridging the Gap to Sixth Form’ programme, the introduction to the Extended Project Qualification and foundation lessons in their chosen A Level courses. This was followed by an opportunity to expand their horizons and enjoy time together with experiences and trips in the local area and beyond, the highlight for many being a visit to Regent’s Park open Air theatre to watch Romeo and Juliet.
Head, Liz Hewer, spoke of her pride in the St George’s Fifth Years ”above all the girls have been enormously supportive of each other and excellent role models for the younger year groups. The girls can’t wait to reconnect with their friends across the School, and we are looking forward to them playing a leading role as members of the Sixth Form next term when we are able to come together once more as a whole school community”.
