GCSE Success for Bolton School Girls
Thursday, 22 August 2013
70.7% of the grades awarded at Bolton School Girls’ Division were A* or A with 33% of grades at A*. Headmistress, Sue Hincks, said that she was delighted with all that they had achieved, not least because they combine their academic studies with significant involvement in a range of different areas, including music, sport, drama and community work. She thanked the staff and students for all that they had done in preparation for the exams.
Seven girls achieved 11 A* grades (Than Dar, Katie Hurt, Jess Melling, Khamillah Mohammed, Sarah Richards, Victoria Whitehead and Eleanor Harding) and three girls achieved 10 A* grades (Alex Brown, Aliya Ghanchi and Kalina Marsh).
There were many individual success stories in the Girls’ Division, none more so than that of Eleanor Harding who achieved 11 A*s despite having battled leukemia for the past two and a half years. Eleanor’s mum said: “We are delighted with Eleanor’s results. We hope her results might serve as an inspiration to anyone else diagnosed with leukemia, showing them that life can go on and they can still succeed.I can’t speak highly enough of Bolton School Girls’ Division, which has been incredibly supportive throughout the past couple of years.”
