3:55pm Thursday 15th August 2013 in News
Girls at Westonbirt School in Tetbury achieved 100 per cent pass rate in their A-level results.
The students achieved 12 per cent A*, 36 per cent A*/A and 55 per cent A*-B.
"As a non selective school we have achieved some excellent grades for our students who are going on to study a diverse range of topics including neuroscience, law, drama and veterinary,” said headteacher Natasha Dangerfield.
Of the 27 girls who achieved A-levels five are going into sciences - the same number will be going on to study business, economics or accounting.
“We run weekly careers conferences and talks which students and sometimes parents can attend. We want to empower students to make their own, informed choices,” said Mrs Dangerfield.
“We are also launching a business school next month to help the students develop their business skills and make them more employable.”
Fiona Vincent, from Chippenham, received three As and will study medicine at Southampton. “I’m delighted. My time at Westonbirt has been amazing,” she said.
Isabel Yerburgh, from Nailsworth, who received 1A* and 2 As, will study medicine at Bristol. Laura Snape, from Trowbridge, achieved 2 A* and 1A and will follow her dream to study architecture at Cardiff University.
She said: “I’m still a bit in shock but so pleased with my results.”
Lydia Marshall, from Hawkesbury Upton, received one A and 2 Bs and is off to study drama at Birmingham.
