A quarter of Oxford High girls gain 10 or more A* at GCSE

Oxford High School is celebrating a fantastic performance in this year’s GCSE results. A quarter of the cohort at the school gained 10 or more A* at GCSE. Other highlights include:

  • 68% of results were A*
  • 92% of results were A*/A
  • 99% of results were A*-B
  • 100% A* in Mandarin and Design Technology
  • 100% A*-A in Russian, Mandarin, Spanish, German, Art, DT and Textiles
  • 93% A*-A in Mathematics
  • 92% A*-A in Sciences
  • 94% A*-A in English

Head of Oxford High School, Judith Carlisle, said:

“Wherever you look at these results, you see excellence. Nearly two thirds of our Year 11 students achieved 100% A*-A and a quarter attained a clean sweep of 10 or more straight A*s. I am tremendously proud of each and every girl. Their results show that whatever they choose to study, they consistently perform equally well across a huge range of subjects.

“A great example is in Modern Foreign Languages where 82% of grades were A* and, in Mandarin, our 24 students, most of whom are non-native speakers, celebrated a clean sweep of straight A*s for the third year in a row. That is just remarkable.

“The visual arts also had huge success with Design Technology students achieving straight A*s for the fourth year in a row and 100% A*-A across Art and Textiles, too. Our students, parents and staff have so much to celebrate. I look forward to welcoming everyone back in September as our Sixth Form embark on their brand new, innovative 360 Programme.”
