|Putney High Celebrates Record GCSE Results|
14 girls achieved straight A*s including 3 with 12 A*s
Putney High School is today celebrating record GCSE results, with 93 per cent of entries achieving A* or A grades. Almost three quarters of girls secured at least 10 A* or A grades, and more than one third earned 11 A* or As.
Three girls – Sae Kohara, Megan O’Shea and Charlotte Wootton - scooped 12 straight A*s while seven achieved 11 straight A*s. Four earned 10 straight A*s. Isabel van der Linden received her results while training with the national centex lacrosse team – little more than a week after co-captaining the England U17 team in a competition staged in Hanover, Germany, to run alongside the Lacrosse World Cup.
Every entry for Chinese earned an A* grade in this the first year that girls have sat GCSE Chinese at Putney. Several of these students will now go on to take A Level Chinese. Headmistress Dr Denise Lodge said:
Putney reported 95 per cent A* and A grade passes in the three sciences, with three quarters of science entries achieving A*. Furthermore, 98 per cent of English entries were A* or A.
Results then off to Reading Festival to celebrate!
Dr Lodge added: “ It is fitting that these students, who have received such record-breaking results, should now be looking forward to becoming the first to use our state-of-the-art new Sixth Form Centre.”
