Girls celebrate outstanding GCSE results

August 25th, 2016

Focus and determination paid off as pupils celebrated outstanding GCSE and IGCSE results at Haberdashers’ Monmouth School for Girls.

42% of all examinations were graded A* and more than a third of pupils achieved at least seven A*s.

rosemaryOne girl, Rosemary, was awarded 11 A*s and an A, and five candidates gained 10 A*s.

All 20 pupils who sat additional maths achieved a distinction and a third of all girls gained 10 A* to A grades.

Best friends Susie and Lucy were both awarded eight A*s and two As.

Lucy said: “We’ve been together since Reception and we were in a lot of the same classes.

“I can’t believe how well we’ve done.

“We knew maths was going to be a challenge so we did a lot of past papers together.

“We definitely got each other through maths this year.”

Flautist Rosemary, who hopes to study French and German at university, was relieved that her hard work delivered such sterling marks.

She said: “I’m so happy. My advice to people taking GCSEs next year is to stay calm and pace yourself throughout study periods.”

Pupils also performed well in the more challenging IGCSE examinations.

82.6% of biology papers, 82.6% of physics exams, 73.9% of chemistry papers and 78.6% of history assessments were marked at A*/A.

Dr Caroline Pascoe, Headmistress of HMSG, added: “We were delighted for the girls and so proud of them.  This is the first year that every single girl who sat additional maths achieved a distinction. It’s all thanks to the dedication and commitment of our pupils and staff.”
