Results and Leavers’ Destinations
A-LEVEL AND PRE-U
Girls, parents and staff are celebrating an impressive set of A-Level and Pre-U results at Queenswood, with 80.7% of grades achieved at A*–B.
Despite the uncertainty caused by the Coronavirus pandemic and the consequent upheaval to the regular examination process, the outcome reflects the girls’ dedication to their studies and the teachers’ commitment to providing the most robust information to the exam boards.
Subjects which performed particularly well include: Physics (100% A*-B), Politics (100% A*-A), Drama (100% A*-B) and Latin (100% A*-B). Results for modern foreign languages were also very good (91% A*-B across Spanish, French, Italian and Japanese). There were some outstanding individual achievements where girls achieved two, three or four A*s, and in total more than 20% of the year group received straight A*/A grades.
Commenting on the results, Principal, Mrs Jo Cameron said: “I am thrilled for the girls, their parents and our hard working staff. This year’s grading process has been very stressful for all of us and I am very proud that, prior to the reversion to Centre Assessed Grades, significantly fewer of the grades that we submitted were initially changed by the examining boards than the reported national figure.”
Queenswood pupils can be proud of the GCSE results achieved in 2020. Following months of Covid-19 related disruption to studies, cancellation of public examinations and anxiety surrounding the Government’s grading U-turns, the waiting is over and their endeavours pre-lockdown have been recognised, with an impressive 61.6% of grades awarded at 9-7 (equivalent to A*/A in the previous grading system).
Among the strong results are some outstanding individual achievements, including one student who achieved 11 grade 9s and an A (the top grade) in the prestigious Free Standing Mathematical Qualification, and a further three pupils who achieved mainly grades 9 and 8. In total, 22 out of the 68 candidates achieved at least eight grades 9-7.
Commenting on the results, Principal, Mrs Jo Cameron said: “I am delighted that the hard work of our pupils and staff has been vindicated with these results. The girls will now be able to transition to their Sixth Form studies with the confidence that these results will bring them. I wish them every success as they embrace the next stage of their education.”
Once more, our girls gained entrance to some of the UK’s most prestigious universities, including Durham, Imperial College London, SOAS, Bristol, Kings College, London, Manchester and Leeds. We wish all of our leavers the very best of luck as they move on to the next exciting chapter in their studies.
