Today we gave out A Level results to Year 13. We are delighted that almost a quarter of our candidates achieved at least one A* in their subjects! We congratulate all of them on their achievements.
All of our girls also gained places in their first choice of university, a testament to the support they receive at HOHS in selecting appropriate courses and in completing their application form (including the all-important personal statement) and to the detailed references provided by the school in support of candidates.
These results are a fitting reward for all the hard work of the candidates and their teachers (not forgetting the support of parents!) resulting in almost 70% of passes this year at the highest grades A* – C, with almost a fifth at the top grades of A and A*.
Girls are going on to a wide range of courses at home and abroad, from veterinary science at the University of Liverpool to chemical engineering at McGill, one of Canada’s top institutions, to costume design and making in Nottingham.
We wish everybody well as they take up their places in the Autumn and hope they will keep in touch via our blog!
