Harrogate Ladies’ College pupils celebrate outstanding GCSE results (l to r: Elizabeth Gill, Phoebe Robinson, Harriet Lawson, Tilly Axon, Izzie Copnall, Carla Crystal, Aoife Berwick and Nicole Brocksom)

Seventeen percent of pupils achieved a clean sweep of A* to A grades in all of their subjects.

Thirteen subjects achieved 65% or more A* to A grades across the board including Chemistry, Physics, Biology, English Literature, History, French and Religious Studies.

Principal, Sylvia Brett said,

“This is the third year running that our GCSE grades have increased. Today’s results are a real testament to the hard work of our girls and the quality of our teaching.  The size of our school means that we can work closely with individual students to support them and I’m sure that this personal attention is evident in our results”.


“The girls have achieved amazing results and they should be really proud of themselves, as I am of them.  Their results will provide them with a solid foundation as they move forward to more specialised A level studies and I’m sure that they will be equally as successful in these.”

Sylvia Brett, Principal of Harrogate Ladies’ College
