Brentford Girls Celebrate GCSE results
Hard work of girls and staff has been rewarded
Students and staff at Brentford School for Girls are today celebrating its best-ever set of GCSE results with 72% of students achieving five or more A*-C grades including English Language and Mathematics, and 90% gaining five or more GCSEs in total. These results sit above national figures and represent a significant advance on last year’s totals. The results demonstrate the sustained progress being made by the school in recent years.
The results are a testament to the hard work, determination and effort that our students have put in to their studies over the last two years, along with the support provided by their teachers, parents and carers. We are incredibly proud of our girls, whose achievements stand them in good stead for the next step of their education and we wish them well with their sixth form studies.
Outstanding individual results include Merwa Badar, Jasmin Perry and Mayuri Rathod who each achieved eight A* and two A grades. Tashfia Ahmed, Olivia Gibbs Farley and Karishma Vijay each earned seven A*s and 3 A grades. Izzy Akhabau scored six A*s and 4 A grades.
Marais Leenders, Headteacher, has congratulated our girls for their hard work and effort, saying “We are totally delighted about this year's results, particularly since the national picture looks quite gloomy. The girls and their teachers have worked incredibly hard and their efforts have been highly rewarded. We are all very proud of what we have achieved as a community.’
