Pupils and staff at The Abbey are celebrating one of their best ever sets of GCSE results with 88% achieving A*- A and 9-7 and 98% gaining A*- B and 9-6.
Rachel Dent, Head of The Abbey, said: “I am absolutely delighted with our GCSE results this year. This is the culmination of years of hard work by students and teachers, who have once again excelled.
“Whilst we celebrate the achievements of those with outstanding grades, I am just as proud of those who have seen huge personal development and who have exceeded their predicted grades.
“Our aim as a school is to help every girl realise, and then exceed, her potential.
“Many of these girls have been with us for many years, and I have proudly watched them develop both intellectually and as young women. Inspired by dedicated teachers, I have seen their love of learning grow.
“This year group has also been very active outside the classroom. Whether competing in sports events, going on trips or enjoying great success in the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Scheme, their endeavours are proof there is much more to life at The Abbey than just exam results.
“Many of these students are continuing their educational journey in our Sixth Form and I look forward to seeing them build on their success.”
