Brentford Girls Celebrate A Level Results
Future studies includes Anthropoloy, Astrophysics and Political Science
There were joyous scenes on Thursday at Brentford School for Girls as students celebrated their A Level results.
The percentage of exam results secured at grades A*-B and A*-C are up again this year. These results reflect very well on our sixth formers, who have worked incredibly hard towards securing their goals. Students have shown determination, dedication and commitment. The results also demonstrate the continued hard work of the teaching staff in supporting students to achieve their very best.
Contained within the results are some excellent individual achievements. Students with particularly impressive results include Lucy Whitmore (A*- Physics, A- Chemistry and A- Mathematics), Lisa Burna-Asefi (A- Biology, A- English Literature, A- Religious Studies), Ama Badu (A*- Art, B- English Literature, B- History) and Amy George (A- English Literature, A- History, B- Biology).
Amy, who will go on to read Anthropology at the University of Durham said, “I am thrilled by my exam results and I am very excited about going to Durham. All my teachers were very supportive of me in helping me to achieve my goals.”
Our students have been successful in securing university places far and wide with students heading off to institutions as diverse as UCL, Durham, Manchester, Reading, Brunel and Roehampton. Subjects being studied include Anthropology, Astrophysics, Biology, Education, English, Human Resources Management, Mathematics, Nursing, and Political Science.
Katie Coleman, Head of Sixth Form, said of the results, “We are incredibly pleased with this year’s results. We are happy to see an increase in the percentage of students securing top grades against a national picture that suggests a dip in overall scores. We are very proud of our sixth formers, whose hard work more that reflects our school values which emphasise, amongst other things, ambition, inquisitiveness and reflection.”
"We are absolutely delighted with our sixth formers and we wish all of our students the very best of luck in their future studies".
