Girls are celebrating some of the best GCSE results ever.

With 46% of the grades at A*, 77% of grades at A*-A and more than 93% of the grades at A*-B, the girls have proved that they are among the best in the country.

The grades place them top for Chester of the The Times GCSE League Tables 2014.

100% of girls achieved eight grades at A*- C including maths and English, with 83% getting five or more GCSEs at grades A*- A.

The results see a continuation of the school’s 100% pass rate and are testament to the fact that every girl is nurtured by her teachers to reach her full potential.

Every single girl in the year group achieved A*- B in English literature, with 95% getting A*- B in English language and 93% achieved A*-B in maths.

In the sciences, where girls take physics, chemistry and biology as three separate GCSEs from year 7, the results were also  outstanding with 89% achieving A*-B in biology, 86% achieving A*-B in chemistry and 92% achieving A*- B in physics.

Everyone sitting art, classical civilisation, German, Latin and ICT received either an A or A* and all those who took drama, Mandarin and religious studies got A*-B grades.

Girls who worked exceptionally hard contributing to this excellent set of results include Emma Whitfield and Chloë Bransby who both achieved 10 A* grades each.

Other  top achievers include Amy Clarkson (9A* A), Shreya Jauhari (9A* A), Kimberley Meredith (9A* 2A), Isabel Millican (9A* A), Alice Thompson (9A* A), Alexandra Castling (8A* 2A), Louisa Cowell (8A* 2A), Eleanor Hassall (8A* AB), Isobel Jones (8A* 2A), Louisa Manby (8A* 2A), Rhianna Thornton-Reid (8A* 2A), Rachael Turner (8A* 2A), Jessica Willis (8 A* AB), Sarah Chandler (7A* 2A B), Lauren Evans (7A* 3A), Nia Jones (7A* 3A), Georgina Lane (7 A* 3A), Alice Penny (7A* 3A), Lola Shaw (7A* 3A), Sara Salim (7A* 4A), Bethan Sudder (7A* 3A), Emmeline Blellock (6A* 4A), India Hall (6A* 3A B), Francesca Lloyd-Watts (6A* 4A), Eden Northcott (6A* 4A), Katherine Woods (6A* 4A), Alexandra Le Gros (6A* 3A B) and Jemma Bright (6A* 4A)

The news follows last week’s A level announcement which saw almost a quarter of the A level grades at A* and over 86% at A*-B.

Headmistress Mrs Sarah Clark said: “I am enormously proud of all the girls who have worked so hard this year to get these fantastic GCSE grades – well done to everyone on a superb sustained effort throughout the two years.”
