The language of success was a common currency as students from the Upper Sixth collected their A level results at Burgess Hill School for Girls.
Students of French and Spanish were particularly praised for high marks in difficult examinations.
81% of all entries for examinations on all subjects were awarded A* to B grades.
The majority of those applying to university have been successful in securing their first choice places. The school is also celebrating the successes of creative students who have gained places on prestigious Art Foundation Courses.
But Mrs Aughwane said: “We are particularly delighted with the full complement of A* grades gained by our Further Mathematics students and the particularly highly prized A* and A grades in French and Spanish which are recognised nationally as amongst the most difficult to achieve.”
“In a year when standards have been tightened and top grades are harder to realise, we are proud of the girls’ achievements and wish them every success in the future. We look forward to hearing of their progress.”
Pupil Hannah Labus is heading to the Royal Northern Music College and Phao Wheatley will take up her place at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art (RADA). Abi Grosvenor is heading to Central St Martins College of Arts and Design in London following a now well-established tradition for Burgess Hill School for Girls’ talented art students.
Mrs Aughwane commented, “This year group have been wonderful role models for the younger girls as they demonstrate such diverse talents and ability with their chosen paths for the future.”
Burgess Hill students will go on to study Mathematics at Bristol and UCL (Bethan Williams and Natalie Luk); Psychology at Birmingham (Ellie Armitage); International Relations at Leeds (Tessa Barr); Modern Languages at Exeter (Kitty Cleaver); Management at London School of Economics (Joyce Chu); History at Exeter (Constance Moon); and Geography at UCL (Laura Warner).
