Sue Baillie commented; “I am hugely proud of the achievements of all our students in this year’s A Level examinations. After the most challenging of years they have been rewarded with grades which enable them to pursue their dreams.”
Students at the Day and Boarding school in Escrick have this morning achieved excellent A Level results despite being dealt the most difficult of hands. Having not sat their GCSE examinations due to the pandemic, their A Levels were the first external examinations this cohort have ever sat. Their grades are a fitting reward for a very kind and courageous group of girls.
The results will see the Queen Margaret’s (QM) girls go on to pursue their very individual passions, many at prestigious Russell Group universities such as Bristol, Durham and Edinburgh, and some overseas as they stretch their wings to the USA. There are future lawyers, biomedical scientists, historians, fashionistas, environmental scientists and film producers amongst the leaving year group – each girl’s time at the school has been a real celebration of her individuality.
Mrs Baillie continued “QM girls are much more than the grades they attain, they are successful, tenacious and ambitious individuals and the resilience they have shown under unprecedented conditions is remarkable, they are an inspiration to us all.”
