An outstanding set of GCSE results 2017

Redmaids’ High is today celebrating an outstanding set of GCSE results, awarded to students across both former schools – Red Maids’ and Redland High.


32 Year 11 girls gained all A*/A grades, nearly half of whom (15) achieved straight A*s.


Furthermore, 22 Year 10 girls took their maths IGCSE a year early with 86% receiving the top A* grade and 100% gaining A*/A.


More STEM success came through biology, physics and chemistry where 58% of all grades were at the top A* grade.


In further maths 63% of all grades were A*, with one third of these students achieving an additional A* distinction, a grade which is beyond an A* and is unique to this subject.


In addition, 57% of GCSEs achieved in ICT and computing were also A* grades.


Languages, including Russian and Latin, produced exceptional results with A*s making up half of the marks awarded, while 70% of girls had their creative flair in art rewarded with A*s.


Niki Mehta, who today achieved straight A*s said: “I’m feeling so happy and surprised! I wasn't expecting this at all! Now I’m looking forward to studying the IB Diploma at Redmaids’ High this September.”


Sofia Durnford, who also got straight A*s said, “I can’t believe it. I’m still shaking. This is all down to the support I’ve received from my teachers, my friends and my family.”


Headmistress, Mrs Isabel Tobias said: “The huge range of successes seen today clearly demonstrate the girls’ ability in STEM subjects as well as many other subjects across the curriculum.


“Our girls have multiple strengths and interests, and on top of their academic ambitions, many of them perform at national level in sport, music and drama.


“It’s the hard work and dedication of the girls, our staff and the parents that enable them to excel academically and beyond.”
