Hard work rewarded at Northwood College for Girls GDST with an outstanding set of GCSE results

While there has not been a lot of opportunity to rejoice so far this year, staff and pupils alike were wholeheartedly celebrating this morning at Northwood College for Girls when they received a set of fantastic GCSE results. In what has been unprecedented circumstances and a uniquely challenging five months for the girls, the school is proud to announce that 50% of the NWC girls’ grades are 9 – 8, 78% are 9 – 7 and 23% are 9!


Zara Hubble, Head commented: “I am proud and delighted with these excellent results, which we believe do reflect and reward the hard work and dedication of our girls and teachers”.


“NWC girls are ambitious and aspirational. We encourage a love of learning which we believe plays a pivotal role in driving success; each teacher works tirelessly every day to inspire and motivate the girls to be their very best.”


Mrs Hubble added: “Strength of character is as important as academic success at NWC and the past few months have seen our young women demonstrate just how resilient, focused and flexible they are. During the time that would have focussed on exams, we ran a series of A Level Bridging courses which included all A Level subjects. The unique programme developed foundational knowledge and skills whilst encouraging independent learning and exploration of each subject.


The Year 11 girls are looking forward to returning to school in September when they will benefit from a personalised, academically strong curriculum and robust enrichment programme in the NWC Sixth Form.


Mrs Hubble said: “Our Sixth Form is a vibrant community of intellectual, articulate and socially-adept young women. We work hard to provide our students with opportunities to grow as individuals, assume leadership roles, take responsible risks and excel in a dynamic learning environment that caters for all needs.


NWC Sixth Formers are inspired, motivated and challenged to excel in all their goals and we know that they leave school fully equipped to lead fulfilling and successful lives in our fast-changing world.


She concludes: “I am proud of each one of our girls and I am grateful to their teachers who always put the girls first. I am very much looking forward to welcoming everyone back to school in September for what is set to be a busy and productive Autumn term.”
