Outstanding GCSE results are being celebrated at Norwich High School, with our girls achieving 64% A* to A grades, with nearly a third of all results at A*.
Two girls secured straight top grades – Mary Pinching and Aarushi Ail both achieved 11 A*s as well as an A (the top possible grade) in Additional Maths each. Rachel Yan excelled as well with 11*s and 2 A grades (including Additional Maths) – that’s an amazing 33 A*s (or 36 top grades!) between the three of them.
Norwich High School girls continue to excel in STEM subjects with 90% achieving A* to A in Computer Science, far exceeding 2015’s national average of 21.6% who achieved A*-A in the subject.
Latin followed closely with 88% of girls scooping A*-A grades. Modern Foreign Language results continue to be amongst the best in the school with two thirds of Spanish entries achieving A* and half of the 19 girls studying German being awarded the top grade.
Core curriculum subjects fared very well again this year with 83% of girls studying English Literature gaining A*-A grades, with 70% A*-A in English Language. Girls studying Mathematics achieved an impressive 85% A*-B.
The girls continue to shine in creative subjects, with half who studied Art achieving an A* and three quarters of girls studying Design Technology and Textiles achieving A*-A.
Kirsty von Malaisé, Headmistress said: “We are thrilled with these results. The girls have worked very hard to achieve these excellent grades, with the support of our fantastic teaching staff.”
Staff at Norwich High School would like to congratulate all the girls for their excellent results and look forward to continuing with them on their educational journeys as sixth form students.
