Southend High School for Girls celebrates a superb set of A-Level results this year with half of all grades at A*/A and 47 students achieving 3 or more grade A*/As. Headteacher, Jason Carey said, “These results reflect the hard work and commitment of our students and the support and expert teaching of our staff. I would like to thank the teachers and support staff, especially considering the fantastic job they did in delivering first-class live lessons throughout the various lockdowns and remote learning. The support given to students was outstanding and is reflected in our best ever results!”
SHSG students secured their places at Oxford and Cambridge. The range of courses SHSG students will be studying at Oxford and Cambridge in September include Human, Social, and Political Sciences (HSPS); Spanish and Linguistics; Philosophy, and History.
Oxford success Elyce was one of the students who collected her results this morning from SHSG: “I’ll be going to Oxford university to study Spanish and Linguistics. I got two A*s and two As and I feel amazing… very shaky but amazing.
“I’ve always wanted to go to Oxford since I was ten so this has been a long time in the making so I’m really glad it’s paid off. All the hard work, late nights, and food I ate are definitely worth it now!”
Head Student Tess achieved three A*s: “I was so worried because I’d forgotten how the exams went but I’m so relieved now seeing the results – I cried, it was a bit embarrassing!”
Tess will be going to Leeds university to study Philosophy and Linguistics.
Headteacher, Jason Carey added, “We are so proud of our Year 13s. These results are particularly impressive considering that these were their first formal, external examinations, as they did not have the opportunity to sit their GCSEs in 2020. Moreover, as a year group, they had a challenging time in Year 12 with some of their A Level programme being disrupted by the Pandemic. Our students’ commitment, tenacity and fortitude have shone through. They have been a fantastic year group and we wish them all the very best. Well done!”
Tom in Year 13 said: “I got ABB and am into my first choice university – Exeter to study politics. I would like to thank all my SHSG teachers; they have been wonderful!”
Director of Sixth Form, Helen Riebold stated:
“I am incredibly proud of the individual and whole year group successes. Their results are true testament to both the hard work of our teachers and students’ individual dedication to their studies. I wish all students the very best in their next steps and look forward to hearing about all the fantastic things they will achieve in their futures.”
