“I am delighted with the performance of the girls across a wide range of disciplines, we are particularly pleased that fifteen of our girls are going on to study STEM subjects, including four to study medicine, at top universities including Imperial College, UCL, and King’s College London.
Our results once again show how the Royal High School Bath defies gender stereotypes whilst allowing girls to follow their individual interests, which this year include Motorsport Engineering, Computer Science and Fashion Design in Paris.”
