Northampton High School is once again celebrating excellent A Level results which are an improvement on last year’s outstanding figures. 53% of grades were at A*/A, an increase of 2% on last year, particularly pleasing as the national proportion of A*/A grades has fallen. We also had 91% at A*- C grades and a 100% pass rate.
Headmistress, Dr Helen Stringer, expressed her pride in the girls and staff and commented:
“It has been lovely to celebrate the girls' successes with them and with their families this morning. The headlines speak for themselves but behind these lie scores of stories of individual girls turning their ambitions into reality through hard work and commitment.
At a time of great uncertainty in the A Level scene nationally, it is great to see the school improving on the excellent results of recent years and to see strength and success across the full range of subjects continuing. These superb results open the door for our girls to a marvellous range of exciting futures, in Architecture, Biomedical Sciences, Criminology – we could go through the alphabet!
At Northampton High, we place great emphasis on encouraging the girls to aim high, giving them personalised support and tailoring our guidance to each individual. This is only possible, of course, because of the inspiration, expertise and dedication of our talented staff. And, let's not forget that the girls bagged these grades while leading the School to great successes in sport, arts, drama and music, outstripping recent charity fundraising efforts and enjoying a wealth of adventures such D of E Gold and World Challenge.
The next big adventure starts for them now and I, along with all the staff at Northampton High, wish them well and look forward to hearing about the next leg of the journey.”
