2016 sixth form success

Kate Seaborne and Lily Rivers - 2016 Oxbridge success

18-year-old Kate Seaborne will follow in the footsteps of her sister Jenny – also a former Red Maid – when she heads to Oxford University to study Psychology.

Joining her in winning an ‘Oxbridge’ place is International Baccalaureate Diploma (IB) student Lily Rivers, who is still only 17. She will study History at Cambridge University after a year out volunteering overseas.

Red Maids’ combined A Level and IB results this year demonstrate consistently high levels of academic achievement:

17% of all entries were awarded an A* grade

46% of all entries won an A* or A grade

over 75% of entries earned an A*, A or B grade, and

well over a third - 37% - of all students gained three or more A* or A grades or equivalent IB Higher Level scores.

This year’s cohort includes five girls who are taking up places at medical school: Zaineb Al-Shamary (Keele), Alice Hyde and Rebecca Jackson (Birmingham), Adhraa Isaacs (Leicester) and Lily Steven (Cardiff).

It also includes three girls who have designs on becoming architects: Katie Cottle (Liverpool), Fenella Pakeman (Sheffield), and Immy McAndrew (Edinburgh).

IB student Rose MacMillan scored the equivalent to two A*s and an A in her higher level Diploma papers to win a place to study Modern Languages at University College London (UCL).

Intent on being an engineer, Sophia Hazelby gained an A* and two A grades and will now study Aerospace Engineering at Bristol University.

Alice Hyde and Steph Allen (pictured) will both head to Birmingham University with a straight set of A* and A grades behind them. Other success stories include Hannah Whitehall who is off to Edinburgh University to study History and Yuqi Wang who will go to Imperial to study Maths, having both achieved straight A* and A grades.

Isabel Tobias, Headmistress said: “These results are tremendous. They are the result of much hard work and determination by our students, coupled with expert tuition and support by our teachers.

“The difference of a Red Maids’ education is the progress that we are able to achieve in our students, enabling them to realise their full potential. I am delighted for every single one of our girls today, they have made themselves and the whole school very proud.”

Other degree choices this year include aerospace engineering, architecture, biochemistry, English and drama, geography, history, law, mathematics, medicine, modern languages, and religion, philosophy and ethics.

AS Levels

During this transition year to the new A Levels, not all Year 12 students opted to take AS Levels. Of those who did, 37% achieved the top A grade and 60% won A or B grades.
