Upper Fifth pupils at King Edward VI High School for Girls are celebrating overcoming the adversity of the last two years, as they collect their GCSE results today.
Girls and their families attended the school’s Edgbaston site to collect the results this morning.
Kirsty von Malaisé, Principal of KEHS, said: “Our Upper Fifths should be immensely proud of what they have achieved. Over the course of the last two Covid-impacted years, they have shown incredible resolve in their studies, both in school and while they were learning from home. They have maintained their joy of learning despite the challenges, and I am delighted to offer my congratulations to them today.”
The results showed consistency with those of previous years: 67% of grades were grade 9 (three-year average is 63%), 87% were grades 9/8 (three-year average is 85%), and 96% were grades 9-7 (three-year average is 94%).
KEHS is not just about consistently outstanding academic results, with many girls also playing a full part in the extra-curricular, pastoral and service aspects of school life.
Today’s GCSE results come just two days after A Level results were released.
