STUDENTS at Princess Helena College in Preston near Hitchin again excelled in their GCSE exams.

For the third year running, science results were outstanding with all girls studying the individual science subjects being awarded an A*-B grade.

There was a 100 per cent pass rate A*-A grade in chemistry, and 100 per cent pass rate A*-B in biology and physics.

Girls studying sport science were all awarded A*- B grades and the school was delighted that pupils taking its newest GCSE, dance, were all awarded B grades.

For the fifth year running nearly half of all GCSEs taken were awarded an A* or A grade and for the second year running, three quarters of all GCSEs taken were passed at A* to B grade.

Deputy head Camilla Wilson believes that "where possible, girls should be given the opportunity to study subjects they enjoy and for which they have a particular aptitude.

"It is fantastic that girls have got A*s in such a wide variety of subjects including Latin, sport science, history and business studies. We are constantly looking to improve our curriculum, ensuring it suits the needs of each year group and we now offer over 20 different subjects."

She summed up: "We are delighted with all the girls' results from those who got a string of A*s and As - including Julia Bevan, Isabelle Milton and Rachel Prosser - to those who got a mix of As, Bs and Cs, all of whom maximised their potential.
