Excellent GCSE Results as Batley Girls’ High School Goes From Strength to Strength

Batley Girls’ High School is yet again celebrating success with excellent GCSE results. Hannah Waheed achieved fantastic results gaining 11 A* grades!

Following the outstanding ‘A’ Level outcomes last week, the excellent GCSE results are a credit to the school community.

Co-Heads Ann McCall and Julie Haigh said:

“We are delighted with the Maths and English ‘Basics’ score of 68%, up by 8% from last year. Students have exceeded all expectations.

“The school has maintained last year’s considerable increase in the percentage of students gaining 3, 5 and 8 A*-A grades. Those who gained 5 A*-C including English, Maths and Science also increased. Building on 2015, students performed very well across a wide range of subjects, with exceptional results yet again in Physics, Biology and Chemistry (100% A-C). Further Maths scores were 100% A*-C and 76% A*-A. E-Baccalaureate subjects scored particularly well, maintaing our overall percentage pass with 86.7% A*-C in French. Alongside our academic success, our students continue to excel in BTEC Sport and Music, both achieving 100% A*-C equivalents.

“Our top performing students (shown in photograph: Top Row – Muskaan Sahkharkar, Maryam Deen, Safiyah Bobat, Sabah Afsar, Iqra Amjad, Hannah Waheed: Bottom Row – Saudah Chopdat, Mariya Patel, Aleesha Ali) are eager and ready to begin the next stage of their education. Our outstanding Sixth Form College offers a range of highly successful ‘A’ level and vocational courses, together with a personalised Enrichment Programme and nationally recognised careers advice and guidance. Our single-sex provision from Year 7 through to university is unique in Kirklees .

“This continued success is a tribute to the long term commitment and hard work of all our staff, students, parents and Governors.
