GCSE results day was a fantastic day for Year 11 girls at Croydon High School who celebrated nearly a third of all girls achieving straight A-A* grades and 28% awarded the top A* grade. 8% of GCSE grades at A* and 86% A*-B.
An impressively large number of girls, 28% of the year group, were awarded a straight run of A and A*grades. Read more here.
New Headmistress, Emma Pattison, said: “I would like to congratulate all of our girls for the stunning effort and determination which has gone into achieving these results and also to recognise the support of their parents and the dedication of the teaching staff here at Croydon High. It is a privilege to be joining a school where the parents, staff and girls all work so hard to ensure the girls triumph on results’ day.”
At A Level, once again, Croydon High School has maintained its local reputation for excellent academic results with a 100% pass rate at A Level and over 94% of students achieving A* - C grades. Read more here.
Our school is always proud of the academic results achieved by the girls but this year stood out due to wide variety of choices this cohort has made – both in their subject options and their post sixth- form destinations. Debbie Leonard, who takes up a new post as Head of The Grange School in Cheshire in September, said:
“This year group have particularly excelled in their ability to take on leadership roles within the school, seeking out work experience and networking opportunities and managing to maintain their different extra-curricular interests and zest for life throughout their rigorous A Level years.”
