A-level results 2017

It was celebrations all round as the girls achieved another outstanding set of A-Level results on Thursday 17 August, with 76% of entries graded A*-B. The percentage of entries awarded grades A*-C was an amazing 91% and a quarter of the 95 girls who sat A-Levels this year achieved straight A*/A results.

 Subject highlights include:

  • Over half of all grades in Maths and each of the Sciences (Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Geology) were at A*/A
  • 100% grade A in Drama
  • 100% grades A* - B in Business Studies
  • 100% grades A* - B in RS
  • 88% grades A* - B in Economics
  • 88% grades A* -  B in Geography
  • 88% grades A*- B in French
  • 86% grades A*- B in Spanish
  • 86 % grades A*- B in History

 We are also celebrating the girls’ results in the Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) which is coveted by many universities including those in The Russell Group. 80% of our entire cohort took this award with an impressive 69% gaining an A or A* grade. The EPQ qualification, equivalent to half an A-Level, sees students research and investigate a topic of their choice, related to their current study or future career.

 Sheffield Girls’ continues to buck the trend with over half the girls going on to study STEM related subjects. This year has seen a wide range of science related careers being followed, with girls going on to study Medicine, Bio Sciences, Earth Science, Neuroscience, Natural Science, Sports and Exercise Science, Biomedical Science, Geological Sciences, Computer Science, Veterinary Science, Pharmacy, Engineering and Dentistry.

This was not to the exclusion of a broader range of subjects, with a number of girls pursuing degrees in Languages, Economics, History and Politics.

 Speaking about the results, Mrs Dunsford said:

 “I would like to congratulate all the girls on an outstanding set of results.  We truly value and applaud all of them who have worked tirelessly to achieve their full potential and are delighted that so many have places at their first choice university. Many have achieved higher results than they thought possible whilst also thriving in their involvement in school life, seizing opportunities in music, drama, sport, debating, volunteering and community work to name but a few. We wish them all the best as they move onto the next stage.”
