The Mount School: Students showed ‘remarkable resilience and maturity’ to claim A level success

Congrats indeed!

Adrienne Richmond, principal of The Mount School today spoke of her pride at her students’ A level achievements.

“Despite the unusual circumstances and array of challenges over their two year A Level courses, the girls always remained upbeat and motivated, displaying remarkable resilience and maturity. 

“The self-belief we nurture in our girls and the drive for success was evident throughout their two years of A Level study and reflected in their results today. I wish them well as they take their next steps in their careers and at University,” Ms Richmond said. 

The majority of girls have gained their first-choice place at the country’s top universities including Durham University, Imperial College London, University of Manchester, London School of Economics and Edinburgh University. 

Naomi Richardson, who achieved four A*s, said, “I am so happy. It has been a crazy two years but I am so grateful for everything. I did my Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) in English. Learning beyond the syllabus was brilliant fun. It was good to explore and develop what we had already studied, looking at what really interested us.”

Christina Eleftheriou, who also achieved a clean sweep of A* grades in her A Levels and an A in her EPQ, said, “I am really happy with my results, I am absolutely ecstatic. I feel the last two years has taught me a lot of resilience and perseverance. The support that I have had throughout my time at The Mount has been absolutely fantastic.”
