Outstanding GCSE success

Warmest congratulations to all our UV girls who have received their GCSEs today. An impressive 84.97% of all grades attained are A*and 98.47% are A*-A. An incredible 57 girls (more than three quarters of the year group) secured nine or more A* grades. We are over the moon with their results, especially against a backdrop of grades falling nationally for the fourth year in a row at A* level.

Our delight at these superb results is increased by the knowledge that this year group has excelled in a wide variety of co-curricular activities. The holistic boarding experience of Wycombe Abbey enriches and balances the girls' studies with unlimited opportunities for sport, drama, dance, music and other joyful pursuits.

Headmistress Rhiannon Wilkinson said: “I am extremely proud of all the girls and know only too well how much hard work, enthusiasm and dedication went into obtaining these results across a wide range of subjects. I am sure the girls are enormously grateful to the staff and would like to join me in thanking their teachers and parents for their unstinting support, encouragement and care. These marvellous results give them a strong platform for fulfilling their potential at sixth form level and beyond. The girls should now celebrate their success and be excited about their achievements and the future. ”
