The Helena Romanes School are celebrating a 98% pass rate for our A Level students today. One in three results were A* – B and there was also a significant increase in the A* – C pass rate.
Head of Sixth Form, Donna Wright said: “With the changes to the assessment system, I am delighted with the results achieved by our students this year. These grades reflect very positively on their sustained hard work, the support provided by their parents and the commitment of both the teaching and pastoral support staff at the school.”
Headteacher, Simon Knight added “These results are evidence of sustained improvement across the Sixth Form and I am confident of further success in the future. I would like to congratulate all students on their achievements and wish them well in their future pathways in further study, training or employment.”
