Exam Success

KS4 Celebrations

Plymouth High School for Girls are delighted to announce another excellent set of results from our students in years 11 and 13.

GCSE results day was again full of smiles and cheers after another excellent set of results from our Year 11 students.

There are many students who could be individually praised with 24% of our results achieving A*, 9 or 8 grades. Special congratulations go to Izzy Ambler, Erin Eastman, Natalie Gee, Tamsyn Hills, Amber Johnston, Katie Law, Ella Steeds and Catherine Zhang; all of whom achieved at least 8 or more A*, 9, 8 grades.

Staff and students were also celebrating results of many others who had exceeded their target grades and achieved impressive results which will enable them to move forward onto the next stage of their education. We are now busy enrolling the vast majority of these students onto KS5 courses and look forward to achieving more success with them in the next two years.

Mary Utton expressed her delight at the excellent results of all students: It is always a pleasure to see students, parents and teachers celebrating all the hard work of the past two years. Students and staff at Plymouth High work so hard to succeed and it has been wonderful to see them progress. Well done to all at Plymouth High - really well deserved’.

KS5 Success

'For life not school, we learn’ – KS5 success.

In year 13, over 51% of students achieved A* - B grades, with many securing higher than their target grades: these excellent results are a product of hard work and determination from students, staff and parents over the past two years. Congratulations to all.

There are so many individual successes, it is difficult to name particular students but some outstanding results were achieved by Tegan Louis-Puttick (A*, A*, A*, B), Freya Lowther (A*, A*, A), Selwin Hulme-Teague (A*, A*, A), Charlotte Lagoni (A*, A, A) and Amber Schumacher (A*, A, A), as well as numerous students of all abilities who achieved some truly excellent results. There were lots of individual subject celebrations as well, with many subjects exceeding 75% of students achieving A* - B.

In keeping with our motto ‘For life, not school we learn’, these students are now moving onto exciting new horizons whether that be university, employment or apprenticeships. The majority of our students achieved their first choice of university, with students studying a range of courses at a range of different universities, including Oxford and Cambridge. The remainder of students are continuing in their choice of apprenticeships, gap years or the world of work!

As a school, we are delighted with the success of this year group and all they have achieved. We wish them well in their exciting new adventures and are sure that that they will look back fondly on their time at Plymouth High School for Girls.

Congratulations to all students who have picked up results this year and good luck to you all for the next stage in your careers!
