Northampton High School students have achieved outstanding GCSE results again this year with the total number of 8/9/A* grades reaching 38% - a substantial increase on last year’s impressive total. They are also delighted that 46% of girls gained 8 or more grade 7-9s (A*/As).
Dr Stringer, headmistress, commented: “This is a very special day for the girls, their families and the staff who have worked with them, as we celebrate the rich rewards of talent amplified by hard work and dedication. The excellence of our students’ results is a constant but I never take it for granted because it means so much for each individual, in terms of what went into achieving it and what opportunities it opens.
“The fearless energy with which our girls approach their ambitious academic programmes alongside a dazzling range of creative, performing, sporting and philanthropic pursuits never fails to impress me. I congratulate all the girls on their successes and extend heartfelt thanks to all colleagues who have inspired, encouraged and guided the girls along the way.’
Mrs Petryszak, incoming acting head, commented: “I would like to congratulate all of the girls on their examination results and on their personal and group successes. That they have achieved these results is testament to their hard work, a talented and dedicated staff team and the love and support of their families. All are well prepared for the next stage of their educational journey and I look forward to supporting them in this.”
