Students at King Edward VI Handsworth School for Girls have achieved another excellent set of GCSE results, with 67% of all grades awarded being A* or A. Nearly 30% of grades were awarded at the highest grade of A*.
Four girls each achieved a minimum of 11 A* grades – Hannah Conod, Poppy Gordon, Grace Murray and Jugan Sahota – with a further six students achieving at least 10 A*s – Laurice Conod, Rupinder Dulay, Lubna Jameel, Joelle Nana Kuindja, Lokti Spyrou-Kirby and Shivani Suthar. Nearly a quarter of girls (31 students) gained A* or A grades in all the subjects they entered; and nearly half of the year group achieved a benchmark of 9 or more A*/A grades.
Acting Headmistress Miss Clare Berry said, “We congratulate all the girls on their achievements, and thank all the staff for their encouragement. As always, there are eye-catching results in terms of A* grades, but headline figures always mask the personal stories – girls who have persevered with their studies despite bereavement or learning difficulties – and we are so proud of all our girls. All of them go on to study for A-levels, where performance is also high.”
Students at King Edward VI Handsworth School for Girls have achieved another excellent set of A-Level results, with 79% of grades awarded being A*-B.

Acting Headmistress Clare Berry said, “All the girls should be proud of the effort they have put into their studies, and we wish them all the very best as they start a huge range of university courses, from Classics to International Relations. I am very grateful for expertise, dedication and support given to all the students by the teaching staff.”
