Northwood College A Level Success Once Again!

15 Aug 2013

Once again, Northwood College A Level results have been superb, with an almost 100% pass rate, nearly 50% achieving grades A*- A, 79.5% of girls achieving grades A*- B and almost all going to their first choice university. This continues the outstanding record of achievement of girls at Northwood College.

Out of the 51 girls who took A Levels, 15 achieved three A grades or above. Outstanding achievers include Katherine Lowe who obtained two A* grades and one A grade and is going on to Nottingham University to read Geography. Twins, Claire and Helen Middleton, achieved seven A grades between them. Claire is going to Southampton University to read Chemistry, whilst Helen is going to Bath University to read Bio-Chemistry.

Gabriella Steed achieved an A* and two A grades and is going on to Royal Holloway to study Psychology and Jade Gurton achieved four A grades and is going to Southampton University to study Mechanical Engineering and hopefully realise her dream of becoming a Formula 1 Race Engineer!

Head Mistress, Jacqualyn Pain said: “I am delighted with this fantastic set of results and would like to congratulate all the girls on their achievements. At Northwood College we believe that happy girls make better learners and will be more successful in all they undertake. Through our excellent supportive system of pastoral care, we aim to ensure that all girls reach their full potential, which is borne out by these excellent exam results.”
