Friends’ School celebrated another fine year of GCSE results, maintaining a 100 per cent A*-G pass rate, with 32 per cent of students achieving A* or A grades.
The percentage of students achieving A*-B grades increased by two per cent to 63, although pupils gaining at least five A*-Cs (including Maths and English) fell to 70 per cent, compared with 76 in 2014.
Charlotte Cross was among many high achievers, gaining two A*s and six As and will be attending sixth form at Friends’ to study A-levels in art, drama, English literature and psychology in September.
She said: “It’s a bit of a surprise, but I’m really pleased that I did better than I thought I would. A-levels will be a bigger challenge, but it will be nice to focus fully on four subjects and not have to worry about the others.”
Felix Hannam achieved three A*s and six As and will study biology, chemistry, geography and maths at A-level.
