Outstanding results at A Level at Wimbledon High School GDST – 70% A* to A and 93% A* to B

Students at Wimbledon High School GDST are today celebrating an outstanding set of results in their A Level examinations:

  • 27% are A*
  • 70% are A* – A
  • 93% are A* – B
  • 100% pass rate
  • Almost half of the year group is going on to study STEM* subjects at university
  • 8 students are heading to Oxbridge

Head Jane Lunnon said:

“These are a phenomenal set of results, amounting to a 20% improvement in A Level grades in the past five years. They are a testament to the hard work of the girls and the wonderful and inspiring teaching within departments.

“I am particularly delighted that within a cohort that sees almost half of leavers buck any unconscious bias as they head off to study STEM subjects at university, 38% of girls achieved amazing results combining STEM and Humanities. These are well-rounded, intellectually agile students who embody our holistic approach and who, with brilliant problem-solving skills and a can-do attitude, will have so much to give to their academic courses and work beyond. We know they are destined for jobs and careers that we can as yet not even imagine, but where the creativity and resilience they have demonstrated in their lessons and in their co-curricular life will enable them to go out into the world and shake it up.”
