    An exceptional set of GCSE results for Year Eleven!
    Students at Camden School for Girls have been awarded outstanding grades in their GCSEs. They completed five terms of their courses and covered all, or very nearly all the exam specifications during that time. It is important to remember this as some coverage of this year’s outcomes may seem to cast doubt on the validity of these grades.

    In school, teachers know that our students worked hard, engaged fully with their learning and responded very well to advice and guidance. They were all ready to revise and give their examinations their very best efforts when coronavirus struck and they were cruelly deprived of this opportunity and of the last few weeks of Year Eleven. As teachers we have never lost sight of this terrible experience and we applaud these young people who have, today, gained recognition for their hard work and application. 

    There has been a great deal of coverage of all Y11 and Y13 results in the media over the past few days in particular, and this is likely to have added to students’ feelings of stress and uncertainty. The school is ready and able to help with any queries Y11 students may have, so do please get in touch if we can assist you.

    If any Y11 student wishes to make an appeal please see the website for details.

    This has been a very challenging year, for students, teachers and schools as well as the wider community, and we are exceptionally proud of what our students have achieved in the face of such difficulty. Congratulations to all!

    A level Results

    Another outstanding set of A level results:

    • 23% of all grades are A*
    • 58% of all grades are A* - A
    • 87% of all grades at A* - B
    • 98% of all grades at A*- C

    I am delighted to announce that Year 13 students have achieved an excellent set of A level examination results.  Once again, students in the Camden School for Girls sixth form have out-performed students nationally by a very significant margin.

    • Percentage A*                                  23% (England 14.3%)          
    • Percentage A* - A                            58% (England 38.1%)    
    • Percentage A* - B                            87% (England 65.4%)                      
    • Percentage A* - C                            98% (England 87.5%)    

    In addition, we are delighted with the following statistics:

    • Students with 3/3+ A*                               18 (9 in 2019)
    • Students with 3/3+ A* - A                         80 (47 in 2019)
    • Students with 3/3+ A* - B                         157 (128 in 2019)             

    We are absolutely thrilled that 15 students have gained places at Cambridge or Oxford and 5 have places at medical school.

    It’s important to remember that all Y13 students this year missed out on the last weeks of their time in school through no fault of their own, and faced a period  in which they were undoubtedly worried about what their A level grades would look like. No students or schools have ever had to make such swift and extensive adjustments before, and we fully recognize the impact of this on all young people.

    There has been a great deal of coverage of A level results in the media over the past few days in particular, and this is likely to have added to students’ feelings of stress and uncertainty. The school is ready and able to help with any queries students may have, so do please get in touch if we can assist you.

    As you are aware, Ofqual, the examination regulator, calculated the grades students have received on the basis of various pieces of information, including Centre Assessed Grades from the school. On Tuesday, Ofqual said that students who wish to appeal their Ofqual Calculated Grade could use their mock examination result as evidence. Let us know if this is something you wish to pursue.

    Universities and other higher and further education providers are aware that this year is very different from any other, and they will do their best to help to meet students’ needs, as will we.

    This has been a very challenging year, for students, teachers and schools as well as the wider community, and we are exceptionally proud of what our students have achieved in the face of such difficulty.

    Congratulations to all!
