Harrogate Ladies’ College celebrate A level STEM Subject Success
Pupils at Harrogate Ladies’ College are once again celebrating 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 at Harrogate Ladies’ College and it was in the STEM subjects that the girls truly excelled with many of the girls taking up a number of highly impressive University places including Medicine at Imperial, Physics at Birmingham and Natural Sciences at UCL.
It has been a roller coaster ride for this year’s Upper Sixth who have displayed incredible resilience in light of examinations being cancelled due to Covid-19 and through adapting to virtual learning and home study.
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.
“Taking up prestigious university places to read Medicine, Natural Sciences, Dentistry, Drama and Physics to name but a few is a wonderful reflection of the girls’ commitment to following their passions. 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.”
