GCSEs 2019: Abbey School head says pupils ‘excelled themselves’

FOUR out of five students at The Abbey School obtained grades of 9-7, while virtually all pupils – 93% – had scores of 9-6, prompting the headteacher to say that they had ‘excelled themselves’.

Overall, more than a third of students gained all 9-7 grades. 

In a statement, headteacher Rachel Dent said: “These spectacular results reflect the dedication and commitment of all our girls and staff, and I am absolutely delighted for them all.

“We have some staggering individual student performances in terms of achieving grades 9 and 8, but what I’m equally delighted about is the consistent progress many of our students have made irrespective of their starting point.
