Excellent GCSE results are being celebrated at Norwich High School with 55% of all grades at A*- A / 9-7 grades. An amazing 28 girls achieved at least 7 A*-A / 9-7 grades each, with over half of this group gaining 5 or more A* / 9-8 grades. 65% of all girls achieved at least 4 A*-A / 9-7 grades each.
Four of the girls in this group have been crucial in shaping the school’s Inspiring Females programme since it was formed in 2016 (Maddie Hazelden, Netra Jeyapragash, Maddie Joglekar and Laura Sillitoe), all continuing to contribute even throughout their busy GCSE year. Together they achieved an outstanding 31 A*s/9-8 grades between them – and all four are looking forward to developing the programme further in their Sixth Form years at Norwich High!
