For Rhiannon Meekin, GCSE results have given her the confidence to look forward to sixth form study at Alton Convent School in September. She said, ‘I am looking forward to the new challenges with excitement.’ Olivia Mace, who is also staying into the sixth form at the school was equally delighted with her grades and said ‘These results have made me feel very secure and I am looking forward to my sixth form studies, particularly now in subjects I feel passionate about.’
Mr Maher, the headmaster, commented that he continues to be delighted that the pattern of excellence continues year on year and that pupils achieve so many A* and A grades which reflects their hard work and commitment. He added, “On days such as this it is right that girls are centre stage but it would be remiss not to mention and thank their hardworking and dedicated teachers.”
Year 10 girls who took Religious Studies a year early achieved an A* – A rate of 84.3%. The signs are very promising therefore for the GCSE results next year.
