Academic Success

We know education is for life. Both inside and outside of the classroom we want our students to do exceptional things as an everyday occurrence and this enables them to achieve life changing qualifications. Our progress levels at GCSE are consistently among the very highest in Gloucestershire and make us the highest performing state girls' school in the South West. Our performance at GCSE and A Level combined has the Sunday Times Parent Power ranking us year on year as one of the top performing schools in the South West and within the top fifty state schools in the country.
