Godolphin students achieved the best A-level results of the past five years, more than half of grades at A* or A and 83% of grades at A*-B.
About 25% obtained three or more A*/A grades at A-level, and half of the Sixth Form achieved two or more A*/A grades, but nearly three quarters achieved one A or A* grade. This is the first year in which the majority of subjects are examined solely at the end of the Upper Sixth year. To achieve such superlative results in the face of some national uncertainty is truly remarkable, Emma Hattersley, Headteacher said.
“This was the first year for Godolphin Sixth Form students taking the Pre-U qualification in Art History, and the results of five Merits and a Distinction reflect the inspirational teaching and hard work of the Department in responding to the demands of this new qualification.
“These impressive results are a testament to our hard working students, their supportive parents and our dedicated teachers. The results are particularly pleasing in light of several media articles in recent weeks that suggested girls would not achieve as highly as boys. Godolphin has proved them wrong, ” she added.
This year, 85% of girls who applied gained places at their first choice university. Godolphin’s post A-level applicants are leaving to study an impressive range of courses including Medicine, History of Art, Zoology, Psychology, History, Computer Science, Journalism, Sociology, English and Illustration.
