Year 13 girls at Sydenham High School returned to school today to celebrate their long awaited A-level results. This year was a record breaker, with a quarter of the cohort receiving A* grades, and 91% A* to B grades.
Bucking the national trend of a dip in the top grades to its lowest for ten years, year 13 Sydenham Girls’ achieved 55% A* or A grades, compared with 25.5% nationally.
It is always a pleasure to celebrate with our students at this time of year. These record breaking results are testament to their hard work, and that of their teachers, as well as the support of their families. This year group gave so much to our school community: they are socially conscious, quirky and kind as well as determined and talented. We look forward to seeing them spread the Sydenham spirit as they move onto their next stage of life and will enjoy welcoming them back in the winter term to hear all about their adventures.
