Students at St Mary’s School in Gerrards Cross celebrated today when they received some outstanding results in their A level examinations. This impressively resilient cohort of students endured the disruption to their education during the pandemic and these were the first public examinations they have experienced, having missed the opportunity to sit GCSEs in 2020.
They will go on to study an exciting range of courses including mechanical engineering, modern languages with linguistics, medicine, psychology and liberal arts to name but a few. The majority of those who have applied have achieved their chosen courses at university and further education and are looking forward to very bright futures ahead.
With an impressive 53% A* – A grades and 83% A*-C, there was a 100% pass rate. The outcomes included a stunning set of Extended Project Qualification results. We will be celebrating all the girls’ achievements reflected in these A level grades with their teachers and parents, as we wish them well for their future courses and careers.
Mrs Adams, headmistress said: “I am immensely proud of all the work and achievements of each and every one of these students, especially as they have endured the pandemic years and the disruption this has brought to their education. They have displayed immense grit and determination in working for and sitting these examinations. As we support and know each girl individually, we have travelled with each one on their unique journey, many of whom have had to overcome challenges and obstacles on the way to realising their ambitions.
Not only have they excelled academically, but they have shown themselves to be a wonderful group of compassionate young women who embody everything we stand for and are superb role models for our younger girls. They have been a real force for good within the school community and we shall miss them next year.
Their teachers have worked tirelessly to ensure this success and I thank them for the work in supporting and steering the girls throughout their schooling at St Mary’s. Having triumphed so gracefully in such challenging times, I have no doubt these young women will continue to blaze a trail in their chosen careers. I am so very pleased for them and their families today.”
