Students, staff and parents were celebrating the resoundingly successful return to examinations following a national three-year hiatus due to the Covid pandemic.

The results included 23 per cent of grades at A* and 43 per cent at A*/A, with 72 per cent at A*-B.

Subject highlights include particularly strong performances in art, photography and Latin, which each had 100 per cent of grades at A*. Computing and Further Maths received 100 per cent of grades at A*-A.

Looking ahead to future destinations, two students will be heading off to Oxford University, with other places secured at the likes of Imperial College London, LSE and University College London (UCL).

Alice G is off to Edinburgh to study biological science in 2022, and said: “I am so excited to take the next steps in my education. I’m so grateful for my time at St Mary’s for allowing me to find and develop my passion for the sciences.”

Lizzie W is off to Edge Hill to study educational psychology, and said: “Since 2008 when I joined in reception I have been supported by a caring community of both staff and students, helping me to reach my full potential. They have supported me in my journey in discovering my love for both psychology and education.”

Rosie P is heading to Kent to study biomedical science. She said: “I have been at St Mary’s since Year 7 and it has helped me to grow in confidence, both academically and socially. I’m excited to move onto a bigger setting to study biomedical science at Kent and to build on the memories I’ve made at St Mary’s.”

Robin Griffiths, the head of sixth form, said: “The sheer determination and resilience students have shown over the past three years has been truly inspiring. The girls leaving St Mary's this year do so with a fantastic set of results under their belts, and an outstanding strength of character to match.”

Headmistress Charlotte Avery added: “I am beyond proud of our 2022 sixth form cohort and their incredible academic achievements. Following a three-year break from public examinations, this year gave students the chance to finally prove themselves in an exam setting after missing out on their GCSE exams. We look forward to seeing them excel in whatever they go on to do next.”
