Amelia Horne and Alice Barber achieved an outstanding 10A*s each. Other impressive performers were Sophie Ashley (9A* 1A), Rebecca Knight (9A* 1A), Elizabeth Callinan (8A* 2As), Sophie Goose (7A* 3A), Subin Kim (7A* 1A), Heather Kirk (6A* 5A) and Nkechi Uwaezuoke (5A* 5A).

Mrs Wilkinson commented:

I am delighted by the girls’ results today. This year group was the largest Upper 5 cohort the School has ever had and there are some notable performances. Many in the year have worked exceptionally hard to attain the best grades they can. Significantly, the great majority of this group are staying on into our Lower 6 in September. I anticipate they will do very well in time, across the breadth of our Sixth Form curriculum. I also look forward to seeing them flourish in all aspects of school life. Their commitment to A levels at HLC is testament to their confidence in the benefits of single-sex education for girls in the secondary years.
