Alderley Edge School for Girls is celebrating its best ever results at ‘A’ level, with well over three quarters of all results having been awarded at the highest A*- B grade. Despite the national picture of the number of A* grades declining this year, more A* grades have been awarded than ever before at the School, with virtually a 100% increase in A* grades awarded this year; double the national average. The girls have achieved highly across all of the 22 subjects offered, with – for instance – 100% of all grades achieved in Chemistry being either A* or A. The School recognises the outstanding work of both girls and staff in producing these outstanding results.

100% of girls got into their university of choice. While more unconditional offers have been received than ever before, this did not cause complacency as our girls continued to aim for academic excellence in achieving top grades. There are, as always, individual outstanding successes and girls going onto study a huge range of subjects at prestigious universities. Many girls have a science focus to their degrees with Nina Fraser looking forward to studying Dentistry at Sheffield University after achieving 3 A* grades and the highest grade for her Extended Project Qualification, Katrina Thornber with 2 A* grades and 1 A grade off to study Neuroscience at Bristol University and Bianca Boren – with her 3 A’s and a B grade – leaving to study Medical Biochemistry at Leeds. Rowdah Charbak, our Head Girl, with 2 A* grades to her name is also off to study Architecture at Manchester. It is also fantastic to see our girls going to study subjects which will impact on the lives and communities of others; from Political Science and International Relations to Sustainability and Environmental Management.

Helen Jeys, Headmistress at the School, is thrilled at the results and commented, “As we are approaching our twenty year anniversary, I am thrilled that these are the best results so far for Alderley Edge School for Girls. The girls have worked so hard and have shown determination and resilience in the face of some very challenging new courses. With our focus on academic excellence in an environment of outstanding pastoral care, the girls have flourished in the sixth form and leave with the self-confidence to succeed outside of our school gates. I couldn’t be more proud of them and the support offered to them by the staff at AESG.”

James Russell, the Head of Sixth Form reiterated: “I am so proud of all the girls have achieved. With so many girls going on to study a diverse range of courses at first rate universities, I know that AESG has prepared them for the next steps in their bright careers. They have the skills needed to achieve even further success in their chosen field.”
