The headteacher of Princess Helena College in Preston says she is “delighted” after seeing a number of students significantly improve on their predicted grades and secure places at university.
In further mathematics, all grades were A*, while every girl taking physics, Spanish, art, dance and drama subjects achieved A*-B.
Of those wishing to go to university, 90% of the girls have gained a place of their choice.
Destination include the London School of Economics, Warwick, Nottingham, Bristol, Liverpool, Queen’s University Belfast, Oxford Brookes, The Royal Agricultural College and the University of the Arts London.
Both Mercury Lin and Isabelle Kerr had a clean sweep of A* and A grades. Mercury will be going on to study mathematics and statistics, while Isabelle will be reading medicine after a gap year.

Head Sue Wallace-Woodroffe said: “I congratulate our Year 13 girls on their successes. I’m delighted that the overall pass rate at A*-C has increased significantly year-on-year, with some girls gaining two or three grades higher in all three subjects than their ability profile might have indicated. “It is particularly pleasing to see girls of all abilities doing so well.”
