The school is incredibly proud of the achievements of the students, who achieved 100% A* – C grades. They are particularly proud of three of its bursary students, who are going forward to study Medicine.

These students’ exceptional success cements the value of Nottingham Girls’ High School’s Bursary Scheme which gives many bright young girls opportunities they may otherwise not have had, enabling them to fulfil their potential and to go on to give back to the world.

Delighted student Edna was among those receiving her results today and she said:

“I am going on to study Medicine at Lancaster University and I’m so excited to see what the future holds!” She added, “I feel so grateful to have had the opportunity to study at NGHS , I feel as though I have been presented with so many options and have been supported throughout the whole journey by both members of staff at NGHS and also NGHS Alumnae. It has been an experience I wouldn’t have been able to get anywhere else. Most importantly I feel empowered as a woman going into the world!”

Fellow pupil Carly who is also going on to study Medicine agrees, and reflecting on her time at the school she comments:

“NGHS is unlike anywhere else in the way that they encourage you to reach your full potential. The teachers are so understanding. They help you to succeed whilst at the same time looking after your mental health. This has helped me to become independent and confident in my abilities.”

This year the school celebrates five students going on to Oxbridge, and 55 heading off to Russell Group universities to study a diverse range of subjects including Mechanical Engineering, Modern and Medieval Languages, Medical Biochemistry, Theoretical Physics and Applied Mathematics, Marine Biology, Politics and Criminology, Interior Design, Molecular Biology and Genetics, Product Design and Game Art – a diverse mix of STEM and creative subjects.

Celebrating with the students and their families today, Mrs Keller, Head, Nottingham Girls’ High School said:


“Following another testing year of disruption and challenges, our pupils have yet again showed us what they’re made of. I’m absolutely over the moon with the well-deserved rewards they’ve received today. I know it’s not been easy, but they should all be super proud of their achievements, they have worked exceptionally hard and completed many difficult assessments throughout another disrupted year. I’m so excited about what lies ahead for the next stage of their lives.”


Acknowledging the success of the school’s bursary students, Mrs Keller adds:


“Our bursary students’ results are a testament to the success of the scheme and they are proof of what can be achieved with this invaluable support. They’ve done brilliantly and I just know they will continue to do so. I am so proud of all of them.”
