Stratford Girls’ Grammar School’s headteacher Ms Kate Barnett said:  “Our girls have again done extremely well and I am enormously proud of each and every one of them. Following government reforms, it is no longer possible to take modular exams in January, and it is therefore harder than ever to achieve top grades.

We congratulate all our 112 A-level students on their tremendous achievements, including an outstanding 82% of all grades at A*, A or B. Within a 100% pass rate, 53.3% of all grades were in fact A* or A and the proportion of A* grades is a record 20.7%: up over four percentage points on 2013″.

Further A level updates during the day.
