It was an historical moment for GCSE student Amy Jackson who attained one hundred percent across all three of her history papers on the Modern World. The 16-year-old student from Talbot Heath School in Bournemouth achieved nine A* and one A grade, and was amongst a number of pupils who achieved full marks across their papers in a range of subjects. Fellow historians Frankie Holman and Alice Stein both achieved ninety-nine percent on their papers adding to their string of A* and A grades. 60% of all grades at the Rothesay Road school were A* or A with a third of the students attaining A* and A grades. Junior Singer of the Year, Iolla Grace attained a soaring scale of results with seven A* and two A grades, and fellow students Rosie Alder and Katherine Tucker both attained eight A* grades and one A grade. In the year group two national netballers, Abigail Robson and Lucinda Leaton both achieved ten GCSEs, and the two Junior Wimbledon participants Lauryn John-Baptiste and Jodie Burrage both attained seven GCSEs.
The Head, Angharad Holloway, thanked the staff for all of their hard work and commitment and said, ‘They are a year group of very talented young women and I am very proud that they have performed at this high level in their studies. Well done to all of the girls.'
