GCSE Results

In an outstanding year, 40% of students (29 girls) got a clean sweep of A* or A grades. The vast majority are off to their first choice of university.

Jane Lunnon, Head of Wimbledon High School, said:

“I’m so pleased for our students. It’s a huge testament to their hard work and the dedication and commitment of all our staff.

“These students lead rich and fulfilling lives: their academic success comes alongside achievements in music, sport and drama. Indeed, a group of them are taking a show to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival this weekend. We’re so proud of them.”
