The girls at James Allen’s Girls’ School have delivered an impressive set of A-Level results

Last Updated on : 17th August 2018

The girls at James Allen’s Girls’ School have delivered an impressive set of A-Level results with 38% of all grades at A* and 76% A* and A. 

In fact, half of all A level subjects offered, gained nothing lower than a grade A this year, with drama achieving a stunning 75% A* and both Geography and Economics with two thirds of all grades at A*.

Headmistress of James Allen’s Girls’ School Sally Anne Huang said:

‘It’s been a challenging time for this set of pupils nationally, with changes to the curriculum driven through too quickly and all the media attention around results.  I am, therefore, doubly proud of the girls at JAGS who have gained such stunning grades and exceptional university places.  They have proven how strong they are and I know that they, like me, will be grateful for the teachers here who went the extra mile to prepare them, sometimes having to teach specifications that had not been confirmed and with very little sample material.’

 Pupil case studies

Young Scientist of the year, Emily Xu, is heading to Imperial College where she has received a Kingsbury Scholarship to study Chemical Engineering. This is one of the most valuable and sought after scholarships for students in the UK and the latest high profile reward for Emily, who received a means tested bursary to help her study at JAGS.

Her research into new ways of separating molecules for the pharmaceutical industry has already seen her awarded a Nuffield Foundation Scholarship last summer, win a Gold award from the British Science Association in November and in April she scooped she scooped the GSK Young Scientist of the Year Prize at the Big Bang Fair, the largest celebration of STEM for young people in the UK.

As if all this was not enough, Emily was in Chongqing, China when she received her A Level results as she is currently representing the UK in the 33rd China Adolescents Science and Technology Innovation Contest, one of China’s biggest science competitions.

After receiving her results Emily said:

‘It’s been a long wait, but I’m relieved it’s over. I can’t wait to start at Imperial this September. A big thank you to everyone at JAGS and all the other people who have helped me along these past 7 years.’

She has been a fantastic role model for girls in STEM at JAGS and beyond and a young scientist with a very bright future.

Another JAGS and Imperial College scientist is Alice Miller.  Alice has gained a place to study medicine but is also an accomplished harpist and has been awarded a prestigious Ash Music scholarship by the University.  Alice is one of triplets and her brother, Ben, who has just finished studying at Dulwich College, has received the same award.

Alice said today:

‘I am really happy and excited to be going to study medicine at Imperial.  It’s a big relief and I am glad that all my hard work paid off’.
