The headteacher of Princess Helena College, in the village of Preston near Hitchin, praised their pupils and teaching staff after the school achieved its best GCSE results in five years.
The school has been celebrating this morning after 63 per cent of its girls achieved A* and A grades – with a staggering 95 per cent of students gaining A* to C grades.
One hundred per cent A* to B grades were achieved in Art, Geography, Religious Studies, Biology, Chemistry, English Language, French and with the same figure relating to A* to A in Spanish.
Headmistress, Sue Wallace-Woodroffe said: “As a small school, we dedicate ourselves to ensuring each girl achieves the very best grades that she can.
“The hard work of our teaching staff has really paid off.”
Madeleine Thompson who was one of 34 per cent of girls who achieved a full set of A* to A grades, said: “At my old school they didn’t think I’d achieve the grades I have – but Princess Helena has encouraged and challenged me, and today I am happy and overwhelmed!”
