A record year for GCSEs at Wimbledon High School

Students from Wimbledon High School are today celebrating record GCSE results, with 40 students, 49% of the year, gaining all A* or A grades.

56% of all grades are A*, 87% are A* and A grades and 98% A* to B grades.

22% of the year group, 18 girls, have been awarded 9 A*s or more; nine students have achieved 10 or more A*s.

Heather Hanbury, Headmistress, said:

 Wimbledon High students enjoy a record year for GCSEs

“Despite talk in the press about a downward pressure on grades, particularly in science, we have seen them rise today, so I am thrilled for the girls and for our teachers.  I am especially pleased as this is the first year that our students have taken IGSCEs in the Sciences, Modern Foreign Languages, English, Maths and History. It’s a fantastic day for the school; the girls should be very proud.

“We look forward to seeing the girls back at school soon as they embark on their A level courses, though a good number are braving today’s rain and heading for Reading music festival in the meantime for well-earned down-time!”
