These excellent results are testament to the girls’ sustained, hard work and commitment as well as to the exceptional teaching, support and facilities which we provide at St Helen’s.

We are proud to announce that St Helen’s achieved outstanding GCSE results this year, continuing the school’s excellent record at this level.

GCSEs are in the process of being reformed with the grading system moving from letters A*-G to a numerical 9 to 1 system with 9 being the highest grade. The content of these new GCSEs is more challenging and the new grading system enables better differentiation between students of different abilities. It is important to emphasise that the results of the reformed GCSEs cannot be compared with the old GCSEs as they are entirely new courses with a new grading system.

The new grading structure is not directly equivalent to the A*-G system. However, in the first year that each new GCSE subject is introduced, broadly the same proportion of students will get grades 1, 4 and 7 and above, as would have achieved grades G, C and A and above respectively under the old system. Importantly, fewer 9s will be awarded than A*s.

Continuing the success of previous years, St Helen’s girls achieved top grades across the whole spectrum of academic subjects. An outstanding 51% of Maths entries achieved grade 9 and 92% were awarded grade 9-7. Latin, Greek and PE all achieved 100% grades 9-7 in the new style GCSE while 85% achieved grades 9-7 in Religious Studies.

In the legacy GCSEs, St Helen’s girls showed particular flair for Modern Foreign Languages with 91% achieving A/A* in French and 90% achieving A/A* grades in Spanish. Equally impressive were results in History, with 95% achieving A/A* in what was a very large cohort.

Almost half of the GCSE cohort achieved grades which were all 9-7 or A/A* and five girls achieved A* and grade 9 across the board, demonstrating the breadth and diversity of academic achievement at St Helen’s.

These excellent results show that at a time of huge change in the GCSE system, St Helen’s girls, supported by their first-class teachers, are true academic all-rounders who continue to achieve outstanding academic success while making the most of the vast array of co-curricular opportunities on offer.
