A Level Results 2021: A Story of Focus and Resilience

10 August 2021

Edgbaston High School for Girls is celebrating the achievements of the Class of '21 who received their A Level results earlier this week.

Each year the school reports on the A Level successes of our students and takes the opportunity to reflect upon the commitment they have shown over two years of intense study. In a year like no other, those sentiments have a very particular significance in the context of the disruption of the global pandemic and resulting uncertainty around the process of examination. Each student therefore deserves our warmest congratulations in having secured outstanding results.

In a demonstration of the breadth of the A Level offering at EHS, results have been achieved across a wide range of disciplines from Classical Civilisation and Economics to Mathematics and the Extended Project Qualification. 

The vast majority of students are going on to study their chosen subject at their first-choice university or embark upon a degree apprenticeship, testament to their fantastic work ethic and positive approach to study. There is no such thing as a 'typical' EHS girl and this year again we see the students pursuing goals across a hugely diverse range of fields.

Clare Macro, Headmistress, commented: “We are immensely proud of the achievements and individual exam successes of our brilliant students, especially in the context of such a difficult and disrupted year, and we are grateful to our teachers who have worked tirelessly to ensure the Class of ’21 are able to progress onto the next stage of their journey beyond EHS. 

“The circumstances must not detract from the work the girls have put into their studies. They have adapted magnificently to the many challenges faced over the course of the last 18 months and their resilience, focus and determination has been nothing short of inspirational. We also thank them for the rich contributions they have made to the life of Edgbaston High School and the wider community during this time.

"The girls deserve every success and we look forward to seeing what they will achieve in the future, and to welcoming them back to EHS as Old Girls.”
