RECORD-BREAKING RESULTS

 


 

Our Year 11s set a new record with their results for GCSE this year. An impressive 54% of all grades awarded were A*, with 13% of all students gaining 10 or more A*s and 40 pupils at least 8 A* grades. This is a best-ever statistic here at the school.

We knew that this year's results were going to be excellent but were still astounded by the achievements of the girls and the staff who work so hard to make it all possible. We hope that they are extremely proud of their success.

At A Level, results were at a consistently high level. 25% of students achieved all A*/A; 77% of grades were A*-B; 50% of grades were A*/A with a 99.6% pass rate.

OUR VISION

 


 

Academic success is a priority at SWPS but education should be about far more than just top grades. We believe in educating the whole person and equipping our girls to make their mark on the world. We encourage them to get involved in the many extra-curricular activities on offer, to take every opportunity to develop their interests and creativity, their interpersonal, teamwork and leadership skills, to be forward-thinking and to reach into the wider community.

Chris Muller was appointed Headmaster of Sir William Perkins’s School in September 2014. He has previously been Head of Classics and Head of Sixth Form at Kingston Grammar School, and has also worked at the Royal Grammar School Guildford and St Dunstan's College. 

Who/what inspired you to become a teacher?

My love of classics and a desire to pass that on to others.

What achievement are you most proud of as Head?

Of creating the right balance between academic success and personal fulfilment among our students.

What does a successful school look like to you?

Ethos and atmosphere are everything – a relaxed but not sloppy environment, where expectations are high and students and staff possess a love of learning.

What is the most important quality you want every child to have when they leave your school? And why?

Confidence and integrity.

And why? Confidence in themselves and in their achievements will be a crucial element to their future happiness and success whilst their integrity will ensure that they will always know to do the right regardless of the situation.

Please give 5 words to describe the ethos of your school.

Excellence underpinned with gentle humour.
