Congratulations to the pupils from Thornton College School for Girls who are celebrating an outstanding set of GCSE examination results again this year.
97% of girls gained at least 5 grades at A* - C and nearly half of all grades awarded were at A*/A.
Pupils have worked exceptionally hard over the past two years and their efforts have been justly rewarded. The Headmistress, Miss Williams was on hand this morning with members of staff to give the girls their results and to congratulate each girl personally on her success.
Miss Williams commented: 'We are proud of the achievements of all of our pupils. We really have something to celebrate, especially when one considers that Thornton does not select pupils on the grounds of academic ability. Our girls have an excellent work ethic. I would like to congratulate them on their results and to thank their teachers for their hard work and commitment. We believe that a happy child is a successful child and this is never more evident than on results day!'
