Record Breaking A Level and GCSE Results!
Record-breaking GCSE Results
Girls at Oxford High School are again celebrating record-breaking results as they receive their GCSE grades. 71.41% of all grades are A*, 92.88% are A/A* and more than half of the students have achieved 10 or more A*/ A grades.
My congratulations go to each of these super students. I am so proud of the girls, whose individualism, enthusiasm and energy make them very special. Their hard work is matched by their commitment to all the wider opportunities on offer and they thoroughly deserve their success. Teaching and support staff at the school give their all to encourage the girls and we are all thrilled with these results.
There are excellent results for the first students to take GCSE Mandarin, which has proved a popular addition to the curriculum since its introduction five years ago. With almost 100% A*/A grades, students will go on to A level next year with great confidence.
The GCSEs follow on from the record A level results at the school last week, when almost half of the grades were A*.

Record Breaking A Level Results!
Students at Oxford High School are celebrating record-breaking results as they receive news of their A level grades.
88.74% of entries were awarded A*/A grades, a school record, of which a stunning 51.35% were the top grade, A*. Nationally, “the highest percentage of A*s was achieved by Oxford High School GDST, where almost half of results warranted the top grade”, The Times, 19th August 2011. Almost 80% of the students gained three or more A*/A grades. These results exceed the already excellent results achieved in previous years at the school.
All of these exceptional young women who are holding university offers this year have achieved the grades that they need. More than 90% will be able to take up a place at their first choice university.
I am delighted with these results, the first since my arrival at the school in January, and our students deserve this terrific success. They have been exceptionally hard-working, enthusiastic and focused throughout their time at OHS, balancing their academic studies with an impressive array of community, sporting and artistic endeavours. The teaching and support staff always go the extra mile to ensure that the girls feel confident as they approach the examination season. Working with these great students and the outstanding staff, and alongside such supportive parents, is a real pleasure.
