Heather Hanbury, outgoing Headmistress of Wimbledon High School said:

“It is lovely to see the look of relief and happiness on so many girls’ faces. I’m delighted that the vast majority of them have got into their first choice of university, where I know they will continue to make their mark. These students have given so much to the school and I wish them all the very best for the future.”

“We know that the period of grade inflation is well and truly over and we’ve entered a period of more realistic grades. This makes the girls’ achievements even more significant.”

In addition to following the normal university route, one student is off to the Slade to study fine art, one has chosen a prestigious internship and another has opted for midwifery.

Heather Hanbury, outgoing Headmistress, said:

“I’m very proud that our students have performed so well in their GCSE and IGCSE examinations. Our students are academically ambitious and they have worked extremely hard, inspired and supported by committed teachers. These are also girls who give so much to the life of the school, getting involved in all sorts of co-curricular activities. It’s wonderful to see the huge smiles on their faces today, and to see a number of them head off to the Reading music festival to let their hair down after an anxious wait for results.”
