14th August 2020 — Bruton School for Girls is delighted to announce its A Level results, with a quarter of students achieving all A/A* grades, and most girls heading for their first choice university.
Three quarters of A level results were awarded Grade B or higher, and 25% of students achieved three A levels at AAB or higher in facilitating subjects.*
Of particular note are: Katie W who achieved three A* in Biology, Chemistry and Mathematics and will be taking up a place at the University of Exeter to read Medicine.
Anna L achieved A* in Mathematics and Chemistry and A in Biology and will be heading to University College London to read Applied Medical Science.
Poppy P achieved A* in Fine Art, and As in Photography and Psychology and will be pursuing her creative future at Southampton Solent University to study Computer Games Art.
Bruton School for Girls has been shortlisted for the Small Independent School of the Year Award 2020 as a result of the bespoke Bridging and Enrichment programme the school put in place for the Upper Sixth cohort during the Summer Term, when they should have been taking public exams. Girls received input from specialist teachers to support their chosen degree courses, as well as modules on skills for life and undergraduate study including leadership, teamwork, first aid, ICT and TEFL.
Headmistress, Nicky Botterill, said: “I am so pleased for the girls, these results are well-deserved and a fitting reflection of their resilience and hard work, particularly during this unprecedented time. The girls were supported by the excellent teachers here at Bruton, and are leaving us incredibly well-prepared for university life and beyond. We wish them every success in the future.”
