Excellent A Level results achieved at Queen Anne’s School

Thursday 16th August 2018

Queen Anne’s School is delighted to announce another year of excellent A Level results for 2018, with 40% of all grades at A*A and70% at A*, A or B. Headmistress, Julia Harrington said “I could not be more proud of the girls’ achievements; they have been a fantastic year group who have been dedicated to their studies and building their futures. They now go on to take up their places at universities in the UK, Holland and the USA, as well as to degree apprenticeships”. Girls will be embarking on an exciting range of courses, including: Mechanical Engineering, Law, Interior Architecture, Criminology, Medicine, Veterinary Science, Mathematics, Theatre & Performance Studies, International Relations and Biomedical Sciences.

Emma, who last year spent her summer at UCL’s Homer summer school, has secured her place to study Classics at the University of Oxford.  Bella has had a busy summer leading her team as joint captain of England Lacrosse U19’s, to become Women’s U20 European Champions, and has also achieved A/A/B and an A* in her EPQ to go on study Medical Physiology & Therapeutics at the University of Nottingham.

Across the year group, 18% of students achieved all their grades at A*-A and 47% of girls achieved all of their grades in the A*/B range. Head Girls, Amy and Georgina, were both very successful. Amy’s 3 A*s mean she will now go on to Durham University to study Anthropology and Georgina’s 3 A’s and an A* in her EPQ has secured her place at the University of Cardiff to study Physiotherapy.

Niamh’s 2 A* and an A means she will now go on to the Royal Veterinary College to study Veterinary Medicine. Yasmin will also see her Durham University dream come true as she goes to study History following her achievements of 2 A*, A. Katie and Ella both leave us to study in the USA: Katie has been awarded a rowing scholarship at Yale University and Ella an athletics scholarship for rowing at Duke University.

Queen Anne’s is always proud of the number of girls who study STEM subjects at A Level. This year 43% of the year group chose to study STEM subjects, with 44% of grades achieved at A*-A and 29% of girls choosing to continue to study STEM subjects at university. Daphne will study Mechanical Engineering at University of Bath following her 2 A*, 2 A’s.

Alice will go to University of Birmingham to study Chemistry with Industrial Experience having achieved 2 A*, A. Heather will study Psychology at University of Bath following her A*, 2 A’s and Katherine will also be going to University of Bath to study Chemistry with Management with her 3 A’s. Nia successfully gained A*, 2 A’s and an A for her EPQ and will now make the move to Holland, to Radbound University to study Biomedical Sciences.

Kirsty will take up a Chartered Management Degree Apprenticeship at PACCAR and Camille, with two Bs and a performance diploma on the violin has secured a place to study music at the Birmingham Conservatoire.

100% of girls who undertook the Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) achieved grades A*-B. The EPQ encourages independent thinking and learning for undergraduate study and is driven primarily by the girls. Interesting subject titles included: The power of the mind: the efficacy of alternative medicine and Can we harness the power of the placebo effect? which saw Chloe achieve an A* that contributed to securing her place at University of Southampton to study Medicine.

The breakdown of Queen Anne’s School’s A Level results is as follows:

2018 2017
A* 14% 10%
A* – A 40% 36%
A* – B 70% 66%
