BHS celebrates GCSE and IGCSE results
Students at the Bermuda High School for Girls are celebrating a 100 per cent pass rate in their individual GCSE and IGCSE subjects.
“I am very proud of these excellent results,” stated Linda Parker, the head of school.
“We had a 100 per cent pass rate in the individual subjects and I am particularly pleased with the high percentage of A* and A grades.
“These results are an affirmation of our long history of academic excellence, and of our mission at The Bermuda High School for Girls of educating young women to the highest international standards and fostering confident, resilient and responsible global citizens.
“We congratulate our students for these outstanding results.”
She added that the Year 11 student body deserved congratulations, having proven that self-discipline, hard work and determination lead to academic success. “I would also like to recognise and thank our dedicated teachers who have encouraged and challenged the students to aim high and reach their full potential.”
The school said that 83 per cent of all GCSE/IGCSE grades received by BHS students this year were A*-C.
The percentage of A* and A grades earned by BHS girls was 36 per cent, “well above the 26 per cent achieved by all girls in the UK”.
And 85 per cent of students sat nine to 11 GCSE/IGCSE examinations while the remainder sat six to eight examinations.
Top scorer, Ali Boylan, received 8A* and 3A grades. Also among the students who achieved the highest number of A* and A grades were Brianna Correia and Megan Lau with 7A* and 4A, Mollie O'Donnell with 7A*, 3A, 1B and Calais Darrell with 4A*, 6A, 1B.
