Empowered girls with excellent
academic results

The challenges of 2020 have been no match for our resilient girls who consistently demonstrate positivity and academic excellence in all that they do. They continue to make us proud as we celebrate their successes together and watch them go on to achieve extraordinary things.

Head, Julie Keller, congratulates the girls on their academic achievements and adds a note to prospective families.

“At NGHS, we consistently achieve academic excellence across our GCSEs and A Levels. 2020 has been no different, our results have been phenomenal. However, this year, where exams haven’t been taken, and Centre Assessed Grades have been used instead, schools have been asked not to publish their grades, but to instead provide information on their historical achievements. This is a more accurate representation of our academic standards, which are at the highest level year after year. Comparisons with previous years and with other schools they are invalid.  Our 2020 results (based on Center Assessed grades, as with all other schools in 2020, were higher than in previous years but we do not feel it appropriate to use that to promote the school. 

I congratulate every one of my 2020 exam girls on their brilliance and am so excited to see their futures unfold. With Year 13 girls going to a range of excellent universities, including Oxford and Cambridge, and embarking on a wonderful mix of courses, from Medicine to the Arts, I’m looking forward to hearing all about their adventures. My Year 11s are also embarking on the next phase of their education, and the NGHS Sixth Form is the most exciting two years of their academic career and I’m thrilled to be with them every step of the way.”

The success of these GCSE results means that the majority of our Year 11 girls meet the entrance criteria to continue their education in our Sixth Form.

The quality of the A Level results allows our girls to go on to the very best Higher Education establishments including Oxbridge.
