Several HAB girls achieved remarkable individual success too, including Shelly, who achieved nine Grade 9s, and an A in A-Level Chinese, which she sat early. Other success stories included Tulika, who achieved seven Grade 9s and two Grade 8s, and Esther, who gained five Grade 9s and four Grade 8.
Gabriela (pictured above) achieved very impressive full marks in her English Literature papers, securing a top Grade 9, which she also matched for English Language exams.
Principal Rebecca Iles-Smith said: “Well done to each and every one of our girls on their fantastic GCSE results.
“They have excelled across a breadth of subjects and should be incredibly proud of what they have achieved – these results are truly well-deserved.”
She added that she was ‘particularly proud’ that the school had bucked a national trend of languages decline, with all students taking a foreign language, and also added special praise for a strong showing in the school’s sciences subjects.
