As a team, the teachers at St Mary’s are very proud of the girls’ achievements – not just today – but throughout the entire year. We wish all of our GCSE finishers well and hope that they enjoy their summer holidays before embarking on the next stage of their education – whether at St Mary’s or elsewhere.”
Headmistress at St Mary’s School, Cambridge, Charlotte Avery, said: “The resolve that our Year 11 students have shown throughout the last two academic years has been incredible. When the pandemic started, this cohort was in Year 10 – at a crucial stage of the GCSE curriculum. Over the last two academic years they have shown great flexibility – seamlessly switching from remote learning to in-class lessons and back again. This agility will stand them in great stead for the future. Well done girls. We look forward to seeing what our girls will go on to achieve next and can’t wait to welcome many of them back to start their A Levels at St Mary’s in September.”
