For the second year in succession, Roedean girls have achieved the highest ever GCSE grades in the school’s history, with an incredible 50% of all grades achieving the highest A* grade and 75% of all grades achieving A*-A.
The school’s largest ever year 11 cohort of 78 girls achieved a stunning 500 A*-A grades. With 90% achieving A*-B, there is a depth of achievement across the whole cohort. The school is delighted that so many of the girls outstripped the grades they were expected to achieve and have achieved very high value-added scores.
Top performer was Freya, who achieved a spectacular 11 A* grades (she also happens to have two Grade 8 Distinctions on Violin and Flute); Lucy, Florence, and Maia all performed exceptionally, with 10 A* grades and one A; and five more girls achieved nine A* grades or more. With an inspiring 20% achieving eight A* grades or more, the girls have shown sustained achievement at the highest level.
The Headmaster, Oliver Blond, is delighted with the results: “It is wonderful to see such fantastic achievement across the whole year group, and the girls thoroughly deserve their success. All the girls have performed exceptionally and their results are the culmination of their academic passion and a commitment to making progress at every level. It is important to remember that these girls are equally committed to an all-round education: they are musicians, sportswomen, dancers, actors and performers as well as being committed to their local community. Every girl has something to be very proud of today and I know that they will be delighted with their results, and we are too!”
