    This week: Excellent exam results, Staff goodbyes

    A record twenty-five students are heading from Camden School for Girls to Cambridge, Oxford and medical school in 2019!

    We are delighted to announce that no fewer than twenty-six students from the Camden School for Girls sixth form gained places at the universities of Cambridge and Oxford and to study medicine this year. One student declined her place at Oxford. Seven boys and nineteen girls worked exceptionally hard to meet the entry requirements for these demanding degree courses, and will begin their studies in English, classics, philosophy, human sciences, Spanish, physics, music, biological sciences, history, fine art and HSPS as well as medicine. We are thrilled with their achievement and wish them every success and happiness in the next phase of their education.

    • 49 students doing STEM courses
    • 129 students have places at Russell Group Universities (65% of the total applicants)
    • 21 students going on to Art Foundation courses

    Staff goodbyes

    It was with great sadness that we said goodbye to several members of staff in the summer. Emma Perry, a biology teacher and Head of Year, left to spend more time with her family, having joined CSG in 2004. She has enthused her students about the science curriculum and provided excellent guidance in her pastoral role. Eric Bateson, Head of Classics, left to re-locate outside London, having given many students a great love of the subject during his time with us. He joined us in 2013, as did Fiona Gollan, who also left London after making an exceptional contribution to the history department and working with her year group for their first two years in the school.

    Davina Silver (2014) also left London in the summer, as did Alex Bell (2015). Ms Silver gave many students a real love of drama and English and has left us with many happy memories of the superb plays and musicals she produced with colleagues. Ms Bell worked closely with students with special educational needs and their families to provide excellent support and opportunities in school. We also said goodbye to Ella Porter, art technician, Catherine O’Dolan, English teacher, and Achilleas Hadjikyriacou, history.

    We send our thanks and good wishes to all these colleagues.
