Monday, 07 September 2009
The Girls' Division of Bolton School has been placed in the top 100 UK Independent schools for both A Level and GCSE results!
At A Level, the Girls' Division record breaking pass rate placed it at 93rd in the Associated Press national table. The outstanding results also placed the school at number 81 in the Telegraph rankings. Students recorded a 100% pass rate with 62% of all passes at A grade, 87% of passes graded A or B and 96% graded A, B or C. 20 girls achieved 4 A grades and one girl, Emily Thurston, received 5 A grades - she will read History at Cambridge. Seven other girls will go to Oxford or Cambridge universities.
Mrs Gill Richards, Headmistress, said: "We are all thrilled in the Girls' Division! They have been a delightful year group, a pleasure to teach, and have given a great deal to the school as well as involving themselves in lots of activities and service outside school. They had a strong sense of loyalty and support for each other, as well as a steadfast group work ethic and this has been rewarded in these excellent results."
The same success was seen with GCSE results, with the percentage of entries marked at A* jumping to 38%. The school was ranked 52nd in the Associated Press GCSE table and 87th in the Telegraph rankings. 73% of entries were graded A* or A, and eight girls got the "full set" of 10A*s. The total pass rate at A*-C was 99%.
