IT’S been another successful day for Wirral Grammar School for girls who are celebrating their GCSE results.
One hundred per cent of pupils gained at least five A* to C grades (staying the same from 2012).
Over 69% of all grades were awarded at the very highest grades of A* or A.
Headteacher from Wirral Grammar School for Girls, Mrs Elaine Cogan, said: “Our students have once again done us proud – these results are some of our best ever.
“It is an amazing achievement and all our pupils have proved that hard work really does pay off.”
The leading school is renowned for cultivating high-achieving students and this year is no exception with 51 pupils gaining 10 or more A*/A grades.
Fourteen students, Michelle Ly (12 A*), Emily Spearpoint-Walsh (11 A*), Shirin Abdullaeva (11 A*), Amy Edwards-Knight (10 A*), Alice Egerton (10 A*), Catherine James (10 A*), Amy Hannigan (nine A*), Melissa Hughes (nine A*), Frederique Neal (nine A*), Amy Mannion (nine A*), Sian MacDonald (nine A*), Madeleine Parnell (nine A*), Alexandra Peberdy (nine A*) and Megan Highton (nine A*) achieved at least nine A* grades.
Amy Turnbull, Hannah Wilkes, Jessica Wilkinson, Freya Dulson, Chelsey Whitehouse, Eleanor Smith and Rosie Marlow secured eight A* and two A grades, while Elinor Bridge gained eight A* and three A grades.
Five other students, Kathryn Lochead, Alice Williams, Abigail Gooden, Bethany Jacobs and Sophie McDonald, achieved seven A* and threeŠA grades while India Moore gained seven A* and four A grades.
Mrs Cogan accredited the high success rate to the students’ self-motivation and drive to do well, the school setting ambitious targets for the students to aspire to, the staff working with the students as individuals to ensure they achieve their full potential and the students desire to stay on at the school in the sixth form.
Following the outstanding GCSE pass rate, over 90% of the Wirral Grammar School for Girls students plan to stay on at the school for their A-Levels and additional girls will also be joining the sixth form from other schools.
Mrs Cogan added: “The results show the high standard of teaching and learning and with the constant support of the parents, staff and governors we have developed a culture of high attainment that everyone aspires to.”
