A few highlights:

  • This year has seen the introduction of the new A* grade which is awarded to the very best students. We are delighted that 20% of all the A Level results achieved at EHS this summer are A* grades, 51.9% are A* or A and 79.4% are A*, A or B grades; 6% of our girls achieved A* grades for all their subjects.
  • These excellent results have enabled 95% of all pupils to take up their first choice offer at universities including Oxford, Cambridge, Birmingham, Nottingham and St Andrews, where Kate Nicholls will be our first student to study Medicine.
