Commenting, Dr Ruth Weeks, Headmistress, said: "We are delighted to announce this year’s success and I warmly congratulate our students on their results. The girls have worked extremely hard to gain excellent grades across a wide range of subjects, achieving these impressive results while playing an active role in the music, sport, extracurricular and leadership opportunities that are so characteristic of life at EHS.

Our congratulations also go to the families who have supported the girls through their studies and to our dedicated staff for helping the girls achieve their full potential.”
