Alderley Edge School for Girls is celebrating outstanding A Level results for its Upper Sixth students with 28% of grades awarded being an A*, 66% of students receiving an A* – A and 81% of students receiving A* to B.
This year, there have been a number of subject successes. As an Apple Distinguished School, the school is delighted that all students studying Computing achieved A* grades. There was also a clean sweep of 100% of A*s achieved in both German and French. 74% of students studying STEM subjects achieved A*- A, shining a light on the many benefits of an all-girls’ education.
Students studying A Level Economics, Further Maths, Geography, Government & Politics and Physics all received A* and A grades. It is the first year that Alderley Edge School for Girls has run Government & Politics as an A Level subject so the school is particularly proud of this statistic.
The school is also celebrating a number of individual successes including Sixth Form students, Amy Barnes and Charlotte MacDonald who both achieved 3A*s and an A. Amy will be reading Economics & Management at Bristol and Charlotte has accepted a place to read Computer Science at York.
On receiving her results, Amy said: “I am so relieved! I’m so happy and am looking forward to studying at Bristol. Charlotte added: “A massive thank you to all my teachers, I am so happy!”
