There is much cause for celebration today as the 2013 Downe House GCSE results are amongst the best ever.
The statistics are the second best achieved by the School since 1997. 86.4% of the grades are A-A* with 22% of the year group achieving nine or more A* grades. 55% of the total number of grades awarded are at the very highest A* level.
The girls have worked incredibly hard throughout their GCSE years and with almost every girl achieving at least one A*, it is wonderful to share in their success today. Their commitment to their studies fills us with enormous pride.
We look forward to sharing many of the individual success stories with you over the coming days.
Congratulations to the GCSE Year of 2013 – you have done us proud!
