It has been another successful year at Lancaster Girls’ Grammar School, and staff have offered their warmest congratulations to their GCSE students on their excellent results.

Unfortunately, we were unable to print the school’s response in our GCSE coverage last week.

“Each of our students gained the national benchmark of five A*-C grades including English and mathematics,” said headteacher Jackie Cahalin.

“Around three quarters of all grades (74.5%) were achieved at A* or A grade and the overall A*-C rate was 98.7%.

“The results also prove that LGGS girls achieve outstanding results with 78% of the year group gaining at least eight of their GCSEs at A* and A grade.

“In addition to their GCSE qualifications, some students also studied optional qualifications in after school sessions.

“All 14 students who sat the additional mathematics qualification passed with 85% of grades at A and B and eight students gained good grades in AS critical thinking.

“What is equally pleasing is that our LGGS students not only achieve very high academic grades, but also excel in the co-curricular life of the school.

“Our students have a lot to be proud of both in and outside the classroom. I am very proud of our GCSE students for all they have achieved.

“Their excellent results reflect both the students’ hard work and the support from their dedicated teachers and families. ”
