Head Mistress, Jacqualyn Pain, comments: “Our excellent results are a true testament to the exceptionally high standard of a Northwood College for Girls education and the effectiveness of our forward-thinking teaching techniques and approach.
Our girls have worked so hard and I am proud of each and every one of them. I am equally proud and thankful for the dedication and commitment that is demonstrated year after year by our excellent teachers.
Based on today’s results we anticipate that by far the majority of our students will go on to their first choice universities, and I believe that this success is due to the fact that our team of specialist and experienced educators identify the individual strengths of each girl and work towards developing her raw talents by inspiring, supporting and challenging each step of the way.”

As a result of our unique Thinking Skills programme, our girls enter the big wide world fully prepared and equipped with a vital range of life skills. Designed to enable each girl to develop independent and creative thinking, our robust programme incorporates emotional resilience initiatives that encourage the girls out of their comfort zone and provide them with the tools and techniques to face all challenge with confidence and self-assertiveness.”

We wish them all the very best for the future and are certain that they are each fully equipped with the knowledge and confidence that they require to truly succeed. ”
