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.
