A-Level results: Best ever results for Helena Romanes

STUDENTS at The Helena Romanes School have achieved a 100 per cent pass rate for the first time in the school’s history.

This year every student gained A-E grades, 81 per cent of gaining A-C grades. These results are a significant improvement on last year’s results and the best set of A-Level results the school has ever had.

Head of Sixth Form Matthew Fletcher said “I am once again delighted as for the fourth year running the A-Level results have improved significantly.

“We have now achieved 100 per cent pass rate for the first time in the school’s history. These results are a reflection of the conscientious and diligent work ethic displayed by the students and their teachers, coupled with the sustained support of their parents.”

Headteacher Simon Knight added: “I am very proud of the achievements of our A-Level students. Their results demonstrate a continued upward trend that is evident across the school as a whole.”
