A Level Examination Success 2016

Congratulations to all Year 14 pupils on achieving excellent A level results!

94% of the grades achieved by the class of 2016 were A*- C grades, with a commendable 40% of the overall grades awarded A*/A.  86.2% of this cohort achieved 3+ A*-C grades with 21 girls achieving at least 3 A*/A grades, a truly remarkable achievement. The outstanding performance of the girls at A level is testament to the value added education which the College offers. Once again staff were delighted to see so many happy faces in school on results day!

Ms Slevin would like to pay tribute to the teaching staff who prepared the girls so well for their A level examinations and to all staff including the careers team and SLT for being available to advise and support them throughout their studies.

And remember girls, in the words of Sir Winston Churchill, “Success is not final, failure is not fatal; it is the courage to continue that counts.” We are delighted to see so many of you accessing the university courses of your choice and we wish you well in your future studies and life beyond Victoria!
