We congratulate all of our Upper Sixth on their tremendous achievements, which has delivered 64% of all grades at A*, A or B. In true Queen Anne’s style, we have some outstanding stories of brilliant academic achievement alongside real sporting, musical and dramatic triumphs.

Headteacher Mrs Julia Harrington said:

“Our girls have again done extremely well and I am enormously proud of each and every one of them. These results reflect their considerable hard work, determination and resilience, as well as their talent, and the girls – and their fantastic teachers – are to be warmly congratulated!”

Gabby Woodward

Gabby Woodward from Beaconsfield, Buckinghamshire, has demonstrated that academic success does not preclude excellence in other areas of Queen Anne’s girls lives. Gabby, who already studies at the Junior Guildhall School of Music and Drama, excels in music composition and has been commissioned to compose a piece which premiered at a special 100th year anniversary concert commemorating The Battle of Jutland and The Battle of the Somme in London. Gabby’s composition also featured at the unveiling of a sculpture at The Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in memory of the victims of 9/11. Gabby was also announced as a finalist for the National Centre of Early Music (NCEM) Young Composers Award 2015. Gabby will continue her love of music by going on to study Music at Worcester College, Oxford University with a choral scholarship having received 2 A* grades in English Literature and Music and an A grade in Mathematics.

Rosie managed to combine her exceptional drama talents with her charitable personality by raising over £2,000 for Rosie’s Rainbow Trust alongside staging the school’s first ever student directed musical production of ‘Annie’.

Holly Bartlett, will celebrating today with her 3 A grades in Biology, Chemistry and Geography. Holly is a key member of our VOCES8 singing group who continually perform to an excellent standard. The group have collectively gained skills which include working independently, effectively communicating and perseverance which all stand Holly in good stead for her Dentistry course that she will now go on to study at Cardiff University.

Annabel Fountain, our U19B Captain who lead the team to Division Two to become National Champions in the National Schools’ Lacrosse Championships is celebrating outstanding success by achieving an A* grade in Biology and 2 A grades in French and Geography.
