Harrogate Ladies College Exam Results – main image

Exam Results

Harrogate Ladies’ College is a largely non-selective school, although our excellent public examination results might suggest otherwise.  Studying at Harrogate Ladies’ College typically adds one grade to estimated exam results in every subject – a factor which is considered by many to be the best indication of a school’s success.

A level Results

We are always incredibly proud of the achievements of our Sixth Form students and in 2020 they once again celebrated impressive A level results which saw the girls achieve outstanding results in what have been a truly unique and challenging set of circumstances.

Top results were achieved across all subjects and it was in the STEM subjects (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) that the girls truly excelled.

Sylvia Brett, Principal of Harrogate Ladies’ College commented,

“We are enormously proud of the achievements of all our girls who have worked incredibly hard in these exceptional and challenging circumstances. As an all-girls school we make it our business to encourage the girls to be bold and brave in their subject choices away from fear of judgement or embarrassment. It is about empowering our girls to follow their own individual and unique path in the world and I’m delighted to see that so many of them have achieved so highly across such a breadth of subjects. 


“I would like to thank the girls for their hard work and dedication to their studies, and the resilience they have shown in such testing times – the teaching staff at Harrogate Ladies College and I are extremely proud of them all.”

They excelled in all subjects including Maths and Physics echoing A level results where students achieved top grades in STEM subjects.
