A-Level results day 2022 at Norwich High School for Girls

Congratulations to the Upper Sixth at Norwich High School for Girls who today collected their results following the return to in person examinations for the first time since the Covid pandemic began.

Students and staff alike deserve hearty congratulations on an impressive set of results. 71% of all results were graded A* to A, a huge credit to the hard work and dedication of everyone. Half of the students achieved at least straight As and above, with 15% of students achieving three A*s or more.

Alison Sefton, Head of Norwich High said: “Well done to all our students on their A-Level results today. There are some outstanding results and we are delighted for all our students that have secured the grades they need to move on to their chosen field of study or next steps.

“I am so impressed with the numerous and various courses they have chosen at University. From medicine, languages and classics to illustration, teaching and engineering, almost everyone has achieved their first choice university places and I wish them well.

“Others have chosen to take a gap year or go straight into the workplace. All should be extremely proud of their results. They join our strong alumnae network and we look forward to staying in touch and hearing of their future achievements.

“I must also say a huge thank you to all the staff who have worked with our students over the last two years surrounded by such uncertainty in terms of public examinations.”

Notable results include

  • Caitlin Sydney, recipient of a Drama Scholarship, is celebrating after securing a place at York to study Theatre: Writing, Directing and Performance after achieving 3 A*s in Drama, English Literature and Spanish.
  • Madeleine Gibbs, who held both a Music and Product Design Scholarship and joined Norwich High School for Girls in Reception, is following her long-held ambition to study engineering.
  • With identical courses chosen, identical twins Nanditha and Nikitha Rajesh are celebrating their exceptional results. Nanditha will study Medicine at King’s College London, after securing A in Biology, A in Mathematics and A in Chemistry. Nikitha, a former member of the Head Girls Team, will study Medicine at Keele University, after gaining A in Biology, A in French, A in Mathematics and B in Chemistry.

Hazel Packer, Director of Sixth Form at Norwich High School for Girls commented: “The resilience and determination of this cohort nationally must be recognised. They are the first to sit formal A-Level examinations without ever having sat a public exam before, as their GCSEs did not happen thanks to the Covid pandemic. They have overcome these unprecedented challenges and should be very proud today as they move towards bright futures.”
