Alderley Edge School for Girls is once again celebrating the success of its students. Following on from the outstanding ISI inspection in February this year, where all categories were graded as "excellent", the girls did themselves proud with fabulous A level results across the whole range of subjects.
Over a third of all grades were A* or A and over 90% of all grades were A* to C. Once again the overall pass rate at A level was 100%.
Particular congratulations to Gemma Francis who confirmed her place at Oxford University to read Material Science, Amy Powell who gained her place at Medical School in Birmingham, Kate Irving who is going to Liverpool to read Veterinary Science and Phoebe Lloyd who gained 2 A* and 1 A grade and will read Economics at LSE.
A fifth of all the girls gained straight A* or A grades.
Over 90% of the students are taking up places at their first choice of university, to study courses including Linguistics, Microbiology, Medicine, Law, Psychology, Modern Languages, Marketing, Fashion, English, Real Estate, Business, Physics, Chemistry and History. In addition several girls have chosen work placements including Ella Ferns at the Bank of New York in London and Ella Mitchell at Bentley Motors.
Headmistress Mrs Sue Goff said: "We are delighted for our girls and pleased that the long wait is over. The students, supported by their parents and the staff here at AESG, have worked tirelessly throughout the past two years. The girls' excellent results are very well deserved and will allow them to move on to the next exciting stage of their lives. We wish them the very best and will miss them greatly, but look forward to following their future successes."
