South Hampstead High School Sixth Formers are celebrating another year of outstanding A Level results. Fifty-eight percent of pupils achieved a clean sweep of A*/A across all A Level exam subjects, and 96% received A or B grades.
“The grades tell a story that we’re familiar with from the Olympics,” said Jenny Stephen, Headmistress. “If you take talented and dedicated individuals that aim high and work hard, they will win the gold.”
“We are proud of our girls and thrilled with their results, but education at South Hampstead is about more than exam grades,” said Mrs Stephen. “Our girls are equally outstanding in art, drama, music and sport. They lead rich lives outside the classroom and are mature, happy and balanced young ladies.”
The school saw strong results in a range of subjects, including English Literature, Mathematics, History, Biology, Religious Studies, Art and DT.
