GCSE RESULTS OVERVIEW
The outstanding teaching alongside the opportunities the girls at Queen Anne’s are given to develop their knowledge and skills provide the optimal conditions for public examination entry.
The girls are taught in classes of approximately 15 students at GCSE. Tutor support, clinics and teaching on how the brain works and strategies for learning, revision and well being, are all critical to the excellent results that the girls achieve every year.
Our results are always a credit to the hard work and commitment of our girls and the dedication they demonstrate towards their studies and their futures on a day to day basis.
Every girl will, alongside their examination grades, take with them an array of other awards and accolades; for some girls this includes Grade 8 Speech and Drama awards, Grade 8 and Diploma musical achievements, Duke of Edinburgh Awards, memberships of the National Youth Theatre, National Youth Musical Theatre, National Youth Orchestra and competing and achieving at national level in their chosen sport. The girls also take with them well-developed interpersonal skills, namely confidence, compassion and kindness. Most importantly, the all-round achievements of our students enable them to move on to universities, businesses and other institutions ready to pursue the next stages of their development with a sense of fulfilment and a strong inner compass.
