More than 90% of Students at Simon Langton Girls’ Grammar School Secure University Places

More than 90% of all students who sat A Level exams at Simon Langton Girls’ Grammar School in Canterbury this year have secured places at University on the strength of their results and have achieved their offers before Clearing whilst all 45 students who also undertook the Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) passed with 80% of students achieving A/A*.

Headteacher, Mrs Jane Robinson, said: “I am delighted that the vast majority of our students achieved their offers and did so exceptionally well. It is a testament to their hard work and determination, and the excellent teaching standard which they receive here at SLGGS. All of our students, regardless of their ability or aspirations, have made well informed choices about their futures, and I wish every one of them very successful futures.’

16 students achieved straight A/A* passes:

  • Caroline Aguilera
  • Hannah Gillie
  • Lizzie Glass
  • Giulietta Grilli
  • Anna Hall
  • Molly Halson
  • Florence Long
  • Sean Rice
  • Natalie Shortall
  • Isabel Simmons
  • Alice Stretch
  • Leila Tahan
  • Katherine Varley Maloney
  • Sophie Wilmshurst
  • Emily Zachry
  • Anna Hall (who achieved 5 A* passes)

The school was delighted by the achievement of the girls who completed the EPQ, equivalent to half an A Level. Jane Robinson said: “Every year, there are more and more students who choose to undertake the EPQ which is their own independent research project. The EPQ is a highly demanding piece of work involving independent research and presentation far beyond the normal demand of A Level and the fact that 80% achieved an A/A* is a trendous achievement for them.”

A total of 387 A Level exams were sat by 142 students with 16 students achieving straight A/A* passes and more than half of all students achieving A*-B.  99.5% of all exams taken by SLGGS students were passed.
