Queen Anne’s School is delighted to be celebrating an excellent set of GCSE results. With 24% of grades at the top grade 9, a 7% increase from 2019, and 45% of grades at grade 9-8, an 11% increase on 2019, the Upper 5 (Year 11) students performed magnificently. Well done!
In English and Maths, Queen Anne’s students proved their high performances with over 25% of grades in Maths awarded a 9. Students at Queen Anne’s also have the opportunity to take Further Maths (Level 2) with 100% pass rate, including 75% receiving 9-8 grades. The English department surpassed themselves once again, with 45% grade 9 in English language and 63% grade 9-8 in English Literature.
The school are particularly proud of the Modern Foreign Language (MFL) department, with three quarters of French GCSE results graded 9-8 and 71% of Spanish graded 9-7. Antoine Rogeon, Head of MFL, says “I am incredibly proud of this GCSE cohort and their achievements in French. This was the first cohort to sit the GCSE exam after we made the change from IGCSE, so these results are fantastic and show how much modern foreign languages thrive at Queen Anne’s School. The students have worked hard and I am happy that all the extra time we spent practising for the speaking exam paid off. The girls who took part in the French exchange prior to the examination scored 89% in average in the speaking exam which shows how valuable those trips are. I wish our linguists every success in their further studies at A Level.”
A special mention goes to Alice Read-Clarke for receiving seven grade 9s, one grade 8 and an A* in Mandarin as a foreign language. Alice is looking forward to studying Politics, History and English Literature during her Sixth Form at Queen Anne’s.
The Dance department is celebrating with 100% of students receiving a grade 8. One of those was Scarlett Beek who achieved 8s in Dance, Drama and English Literature, and plans to take Media Studies, Dance and Drama at Sixth Form. Scarlett joined Queen Anne’s in Year 9 from Hemdean House and has been an integral part of the dance and drama performances throughout her time at QAS. The school is looking forward to seeing her on stage during her time in Sixth Form!
Another student with outstanding results is Oluwatemisola (Temi) Adeniji. Temi has a total of nine grade 9s in the Sciences, English, Maths, History and Spanish plus an 8 in Music, showing her all-round capabilities. Temi has a wide range of skills, having been a member of the Netball and Football teams, a peer mentor and a key part of the Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI) society. Temi is interested in Medicine and will take Biology, Chemistry and Maths at A Level.
Queen Anne’s would like to congratulate all of the Upper 5, and can’t wait to see them in September as they continue their journey with Queen Anne’s.
