Headteacher, Jacqui Cornell, said, ‘Huge congratulations to each and every one of our students, and also to their parents who have supported them with us along the way. Our students’ capacity to succeed never ceases to amaze us. These outstanding results reflect our commitment to offer a broad and balanced education that meets the needs of our students, as well as their flexibility in thought and deed in pursuit of their aspirations. It has been a tumultuous educational journey for them all since March 2020, during which they have been tested by many factors beyond their control. Knowing this, we are especially delighted for all of our students as they receive their GCSE results today. The results show not only how well they have risen to all the challenges of the last three years, but prove that they have not been held back. We are proud of our continued success as a school, and because our students are now placed in the best possible position to access their chosen long-term destination: university, higher apprenticeship or the world of work. We are excited to welcome the many joining us for sixth form and to celebrating their ongoing successes with them.’

  • 52% of grades were A*/A

  • 80% of grades were A* - B

Stratford Girls’ Grammar School is especially proud to be celebrating an excellent set of A-level results bearing in mind the uniquely challenging circumstances A-level students faced due to the pandemic. We share our warmest congratulations to all of our students. Our outstanding results reflect not only the willingness of our students to step up to a challenge, but their resilience and determination. This further set of excellent results again act as testament to a thoroughly dedicated teaching staff and their commitment to helping our students secure their brightest future.

Headteacher Mrs Jacqui Cornell said: “We are delighted for SGGS students, as they receive their outstanding results, which allow them to move onto their chosen destinations. They are to be commended and congratulated for what they have achieved. Knowing how to manage the exam process can be as important as knowing what to write. This means that not taking the GCSE exams in summer 2021 made studying for and taking A-levels this summer a uniquely challenging experience for all students across the county. We are proud of them all and pleased that they can finally leave the disruption caused by COVID behind.

We further congratulate all those who obtained their place on a competitive course across all universities and apprenticeships, including those who obtained their Oxbridge place, as well as those who secured A*s and/or As across all of their A-levels.

Knowing the circumstances faced by each student prior to this summer's exams, all the staff here are immensely proud of what has been achieved academically, but also the way in which our A-level students have embraced the leadership and enrichment experiences here at SGGS, which shape their futures and personal development. Whatever pathway each individual will be taking, we are confident that each student will be well-equipped for the next exciting phase in their life and we wish all of them the very best of luck.”
