Girls achieve outstanding A Level results
The Cheltenham Ladies’ College pupils are celebrating some remarkable A Level results. This year 26 girls were made offers from Oxford and Cambridge, whilst others are holding places from Ivy League colleges including Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Columbia, UPenn and Dartmouth and other prestigious US universities including Stanford, MIT, Johns Hopkins, Georgetown, UCLA, The University of Chicago, Georgia Tech, Duke and NYU.
The College achieved a 100% pass rate, with 81.4% of passes at A* or A grade and an extraordinary 38.1% of all passes being at A*. Three A* grades or more were achieved by 35 girls, which represents more than a quarter of the cohort and more than doubles the achievements of the 2011 year group. In addition, 93 girls achieved three or more A grades, which is also an increase on last year’s results.
These results build on the unprecedented International Baccalaureate results received by CLC girls at the end of last term, with the cohort achieving an average of 41 points (out of 45) and all pupils scoring 37 points or above, one of the very best sets of results in the country. For the second successive year, CLC enjoyed the rare distinction of having a girl achieving 45/45 for the IB Diploma.
CLC’s Principal, Ms Eve Jardine-Young, said of the results, ‘We are absolutely delighted that the girls’ hard work has been rewarded; both the IB and A level results are the strongest that the College has had in recent years. They have been an exceptional year group who deserve all the success that comes their way. As well as working hard they have led the school with empathy and integrity and we are very proud of them and their achievements.’
