Alderley Edge School for Girls is delighted for its Upper Sixth pupils who have achieved an impressive and well-deserved set of A Level results.
This year's results, despite the current climate, have continued to reflect the successes of previous years with 35% of pupils achieving a clean sweep of at least 3 A grades and 72% of all grades awarded at A* – B.
The Head Girl team have all achieved a string of A and A* grades. Head Girl, Maggie Khoryati is planning to study Economics at Nottingham, Harriet Rigby is off to Durham to study Social Science with History and Geography and Aditi Chandana, with her 4 A* grades, will read Medicine at Cambridge University.
Additionally, Sophie Kay will read Material Sciences and Engineering at Imperial where she has also been awarded a scholarship. Lily Payne and Imogen Hughes are heading to Birmingham to read Business Management and Biomedical Sciences respectively, Shanice Donatien is off to Leeds and Emma Graham to Bath, both to read Psychology and Lucy Ferris plans to read Modern Language and Culture at Durham. With her 3 A* grades, Dalia Halwani is looking forward to studying Visual Effects.
Helen Jeys, Headmistress commented, "This year is like no other; pupils have not been able to take their final examinations in the way they would have wanted after working so hard for the last two years. Nevertheless, we are proud of the girls, the character they have demonstrated and their results which will enable them to pursue competitive courses at a huge range of prestigious universities. As always, our staff have been instrumental in supporting pupils to achieve such success and we wish our pupils all the very best for their future."
James Russell, Head of Sixth Form added, "This is another brilliant set of results for our girls, they have worked incredibly hard throughout their A Levels and dealt with the uncertainty with such determination and resolve; they should be very proud of all they have achieved. I wish them all the best for the future and cannot wait to hear about their future achievements. The class of 2020 have been – quite simply – magnificent."
