28% of girls achieving straight A’s at Northwood College for Girls

Over 65% of the results achieved A* – B grades with A* grades representing over 13% of the overall results.

Zara Hubble, Head, commented: “With 28% of our girls achieving straight A*/A’s and over 40% achieving at least two A* – A grades, our excellent results are a true testament to the exceptionally high standard of a Northwood College for Girls education and the effectiveness of our forward-thinking teaching techniques and approach.  Our girls have worked so hard and I am incredibly proud of them.  I am also grateful for the commitment that is demonstrated year after year by our exceptional teachers. I work with a talented group of professionals who work tirelessly to ignite intellectual curiosity in all our girls.”

Mrs Hubble added: “Based on today’s results, we anticipate that by far the majority of our students will go on to top UK universities. I believe that this success is due to the fact that we know the individual strengths of each girl and that we are dedicated to develop her talents by inspiring, supporting and challenging each step of the way.

We are confident that all our girls thrive academically at Northwood College for Girls, but to truly excel in this fast changing world young people need so much more than examination results alone.

Strength of character is as important as academic achievement, and we ensure that our girls leave school with a range of empowering attitudinal and thinking skills.  Designed to enable each girl to develop independent and creative thinking, our Cognitive Learning and Emotional Resilience programmes, encourage our young women out of their comfort zone and provide them with the tools and techniques to face all future challenges with confidence and self-assertiveness.”

Mrs Hubble concluded: “We will miss our Year 13 but I am delighted that they now join a vibrant community of over 70,000 GDST alumnae. This unique platform provides them with the opportunity to learn from, and network with, past students who represent a vast range of different industries and environments. We wish them all the very best for the future and are certain that they are each
