St Francis’: students excel once again
THE girls of St Francis’ College, Letchworth GC have once again excelled themselves in exams.
There was a 99 per cent overall pass rate with 76 per cent of students achieving A or B grades in their A-level tests.
Headmistress Dorothy MacGinty said that it was a testament to the hard work and dedication of the pupils and staff that over 22 per cent of all candidates achieved straight A grades in the three, four or five A-level exams they each took.
In this, the introductory year of the new top A* grade, eight per cent of all A-levels taken were A* grades, the students having risen to the challenges of fulfilling the requirements which demand over 90 per cent in each of the exams taken in the final year.
Two girls are especially worthy of mention, says the college: Imarin Kaur-Uppal passed four A-levels with a remarkable three at A* and one at A in modern languages and maths to secure a place at Cambridge while Christine Ozone achieved five A-levels, four at grade A and one at A* in languages and sciences.
