Sixth formers were celebrating another year of successful A-level results at Brentford School for Girls today (14).
Among the highest achievers were Lucy Whitmore who got an A* in Physics, and As in Chemistry and Mathematics; Lisa Burna-Asefi was delighted with her 3As in biology, English literature and religious studies; and Ama Badu received an A* in art and two Bs in English literature and History.
Amy George who got 2As in English literature and history, and a B in biology, was thrilled with her results and has secured a place to study anthropology at the University of Durham.
Miss George said: “I am thrilled by my exam results and I am very excited about going to Durham.
"All my teachers were very supportive of me in helping me to achieve my goals.”
Katie Coleman, head of Sixth Form, said: “We are incredibly pleased with this year’s results.
"We are happy to see an increase in the percentage of students securing top grades against a national picture that suggests a dip in overall scores.
"We are very proud of our sixth formers, whose hard work more that reflects our school values which emphasise, amongst other things, ambition inquisitiveness and reflection.”
Students secured places in universities across the country including UCL, Durham, Manchester, and Roehampton to study a range of subjects including anthropology, astrophysics, nursing, and political science.
