Straight As for 96 Altrincham Grammar School for Girls students

Posted August 26, 2017

The Art department saw 100 per cent A* to C results with one pupil not dropping a single mark for their A* grade.

Maths improved and achieved the second best results in the history of the school with 75 per cent at C and above.

The school's headteacher, Mrs Johnson, said: "I am very pleased with this year's GCSE results, especially as we have maintained our high standards in a challenging national context".

He said the excellent results were a, "real testament to the work and commitment shown by the majority of students and is even more of an achievement considering that both English and Maths have new 1-9 GCSE that contains more content".

This outstanding set of results is the highest ever achieved by a Fulham Cross Girls' School student and was closely followed by students including Lyeba Ahmed (six A*s, 1 A and three grade 8s), Ithar Hajar Derdour (six A*s, two As, two grade 8s and one grade 7) and Shan Hama, pictured below, who achieved three grade 9s in English and maths, three A*s, 4 As and 1 B. 49 per cent of KCC students achieved the EBacc this year.

Notably, a significant 92 pupils achieved all A* and A grades, with 33 individual pupils securing 10 or more A* grades. An incredible 29 students achieved A* or above (8 or above on the new GSCE grading scale) in all their subjects.

Mr Brown said: "The students worked incredibly hard to fulfil their potential and have risen to the challenge of the new examination specifications". An increase has also been seen in A*-C grades with 72 per cent achieving this in comparison to previous year, where an incredible 65 per cent reached these grades. "This comes against the backdrop of more demanding qualifications nationally; I'm proud to lead a school which is committed to providing a liberal education in a non-selective environment, and which achieves such fantastic success for the girls and boys who make up our community".
