A Northwood school is in good spirits after a year of exceptional A-Level results for its students.

St Helen’s School’s class of 2022 managed to achieve 94 per cent A*-B grades, a massive jump from 76 per cent in 2019. Of that, 78 per cent of the grades were A*-A, another huge improvement from 45 per cent in 2019.

43 of the girls were also able to achieve straight A*s and A’s across the board. This data puts the school in the top five per cent of schools nationally when comparing progress students made between their GCSEs and A-Levels.

Headteacher at St Helen’s, Alice Lucas, said: “Today really is the kind of day that you dream of as a Head. I am so proud of what our students have achieved and of their teachers who have enabled them to fulfil their potential.

“I am referring not only to those teachers who have taught them for two years of A-Level, but to all the teachers who have worked with and supported the girls throughout their time at St Helen’s and helped shape them into the individuals they are today.

“29 of this year’s Year 13 class are girls who have been with us since prep school (some since nursery) and I believe this really demonstrates the value of an all-through all-girls school education.”

With these results, the class of 2022 will now being going off to a multitude of different degree courses, with 79 per cent going to their first-choice university.

These include chemistry at Oxford, history at Cambridge, engineering at Warwick and geography at St Andrew’s. Ten students have also managed to make it onto ultra-competitive medical degrees.
