2015 GCSE results

Exam success continues to follow our girls. 

In the GCSE and IGCSE results released today, more than a quarter of all students – 26.5% - received 10 or more A* or A grades, and three, including 16-year-old Neha Mehta, achieved a full set of A*s in all their subjects.

Neha, from Bradley Stoke, ran for public office during her GCSE studies to serve as a Youth Mayor for Bristol and was duly elected in February. She will go on to study maths, chemistry, economics and geography at A Level at Red Maids' in September.

The Year 11 group also includes three sets of twins – the Lindsays, Taylors and Watts – who between them secured more than 50 A* or A grades. Georgia Watts achieved A*s in all 10 subjects.

Of all GCSE entries, just under two thirds – 65.5% - achieved the top A* or A grade, while 34% were a straight A*.

Furthermore, 87% of all entries gained an A*, A or B grade.

Headmistress Isabel Tobias said: “We look forward to welcoming the girls back in September when they begin their Sixth Form studies, together with those who are joining us from other schools.”

It was the first time modern foreign languages (MFL) had been examined at IGCSE level at Red Maids’ and with excellent results: taking French, Spanish and German together, 66% of all entries won A* or A grades, with the figure rising to 79% in German alone.

In English Literature IGCSE, 77% of results were graded A* or A, and in Further Mathematics four students gained an A* grade, including one who achieved the AQA board’s additional accolade of A* with distinction.

By subjects, other highlights include:

Latin where 82% of entries won A* or A grades

Textiles, in which 91% of all entries were an A* or A, and

PE, in which all students received A* or A grades.
