GCSE Results 2015

Following last week's A Level news from Year 13, this week Edgbaston High School had further cause for celebration at the publication of this year's GCSE results.

We are delighted with the performance of our girls. The overall pass rate is 100% with 98.3% at A*-C , with 15.5% at A* grade, 52.7% at A*/A grades and 82.9% at A*/A/B grades. 28% of pupils achieved 9 or more A*/A grades and 18% achieved all A* and A grades.

Commenting, Dr Weeks said: "We are delighted with today's results; they reflect very well on the hard work and determination of the girls and also the staff that have taught and supported them over the last five years."

She added: "The girls are not only successful academically but also have many other talents and strengths: they are superb sportswomen, actresses, musicians, debaters and much more and they all contribute in many ways to their School and the community. I am extremely proud of the results achieved by our Year 11 students and wish them many congratulations. I look forward to sharing in the girls' continued success as they move into EHS Sixth Form in September."
