With 57% A*/ A grades and 44% grades 9 / 8, girls at PHC in Hitchin are today celebrating their excellent GCSE results.
Interim Head, Lynda Corry said, “We are so proud of the achievements of every single girl in Year 11. The girls have worked extremely hard, supported by our fantastic teachers, and that hard work has now paid off – they can all be very proud of what they’ve achieved. Overall, 63% of girls achieved A* / A or 9 / 8 grades.”
In modern foreign languages, 100% of grades were A* - B and 81% of pupils achieved a 9 or 8 grade across mathematics, English language, English Literature, Chemistry, Biology and Physics, demonstrating a breadth of outstanding achievement across the academic spectrum.
Particularly outstanding performances were from Emma Onah, who has recently been awarded a highly prestigious Arkwright Scholarship and excelled by gaining a clean sweep of A* / 9 grades, whilst Laura Horsley and Dani Norris achieved A* and 9 or 8 grades in all their subjects.
With last week’s outstanding A Level, it has been a fantastic year of results at the PHC.
