CLC girls celebrate A-level success

CLC girls have been celebrating after achieving excellent A Level results, with an outstanding A* to B rate of 91.9%.

A total of 65 girls were awarded three or more A* or A grades (over 50% of all those sitting A levels) with 18 girls achieving three or more A* grades. Twenty six girls completed Extended Project Qualifications (EPQs) of which 19 were at A*; topics ranged from law and politics to biology and theology.

Principal Eve Jardine-Young said: “We are enormously proud of the girls and staff, whose hard work and inspiration has enabled these fantastic results.”

Many pupils have secured places and scholarships at internationally leading UK and US universities to study a variety of courses. These include girls going on to study Medicine, Chemical Engineering, English Literature and Architecture at Cambridge, and Chemistry, Medicine, History, French and Chinese at Oxford, as well as studying at Stamford, NYU, George Washington, MIT and Duke in the USA.

One CLC student, Jade Lam, has achieved five A* grades and will be studying Computer Science at Trinity College, Cambridge, where she has also won a Choral Award. Exceptionally, Liberty Mann (Fine Art), Aureliane Pierret (Chemistry), Ellie Byrne (History) and Maddie Culhane (History), all achieved full marks in every paper to score the maximum possible A Level marks overall. Lydia Kinne, Kate Rawson, Islah Wallace and Cosima Watkins achieved D1 grades in Pre-U Mandarin, having taken up the subject at College as non-native speakers.

In addition to the 127 girls who sat A Levels, 34 pupils received outstanding International Baccalaureate (IB) results last month, for which the average points score was 39.8 and the pass rate was 100%. One CLC pupil, Catherine Song, achieved the maximum possible score of 45, which was awarded to only 208 of the 67,000 IB students globally last year.
