Students from Queen Margaret’s School for Girls have received their GCSE results in South Africa this morning.
They are taking part in a sports tour organised by the school, based at Escrick near York.
Harriet, Pippa, Olivia and Holly all received news of their grades after landing in Cape Town and the four girls are now celebrating an impressive 83% grades 9-7 between them.
Queen Margaret’s head Sue Baillie said:
“All of our girls have worked incredibly hard, they have made the most of the individual support they’ve been given by our wonderful teaching staff and they have been rewarded with GCSE results at the highest level.
“They have the best possible foundation to go on to their Sixth Form studies here at QM. The girls on the trip to South Africa can enjoy their 10-day trip of a lifetime knowing their hard work has paid off.”
Closer to home, the school’s other Year 11 students are celebrating too. Ingrid Wilkinson, who achieved nine grade 9s, one grade 8 and one grade 7 is excited to begin her A Level courses in mathematics, further mathematics, physics and computer science at QM’s Sixth Form in September.
Emily Powell gained seven grade 9s, two grade 8s, one grade 7, as well as an A* in her Higher Project Qualification. She has chosen to study A Levels in biology, business, Spanish and computer science next year.
