A-level Results 2019

Everybody at Lancaster Girls’ Grammar School would like to congratulate our Year 13 leavers on their excellent results. 77.7% of all grades were at A*- B with a remarkable 53% at the very highest A* and A grades, representing a 9% improvement on last year’s already very good results.  A third of the year group gained at least three A levels at grade A and above, with eleven students gaining at least three A* grades.   As well as achieving such strong A level results, the students also contributed in so many positive ways to school life.  A leading member of the Sports Leadership Team and a role model for the school’s younger dancers and gymnasts, Saskia Rudge-Thompson will be taking up a highly sought place to study dance at Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts. Frances  Ashton who contributed greatly to drama at LGGS, and in the local community, has gained a place at Bristol Old Vic. She achieved a prestigious unconditional offer that will allow her the opportunity to further develop her passion in all aspects of technical theatre. The year group not only contained many very able scientists and mathematicians but also included some particularly strong linguists.  The breadth of courses that students are now going onto study is testimony to how the Sixth Form at LGGS nurtures the individuality and interests of all pupils. We also have three students who have secured high-level degree computing apprenticeships with prestigious organisations As usual, there were some very strong performances from students who joined the Sixth Form at LGGS Form from other schools. Jasmine Coulthurst and Eleanor Sture , who joined us from Archbishop Temple School, have both secured places for medicine with straight A* grades.

Welcome to Dr Erinma Bell

18th May 2019

Welcome to Dr Erinma Bell

In April, we were humbled with the visit of Dr Erinma Bell, a British born Nigerian, the CEO of her own formidable charity known as CARISMA – Community Alliance for Renewal Inner South Manchester Area. Dr Bell employs methods that offer profound solutions to those who seek to promote social cohesion within their communities to bring about peace. 'The perpetuation of evil happens when good people do nothing.' Edmund Burke  Erinma created a comfortable environment for a Religious Studies A-level class to explore their curiosity on problematic aspects of society that are often considered a taboo in the media. The class learned that peace was not about the lack of conflict but more about the courage of a community to address the endless challenges faced as a societal unit. Erinma educated the young people on how to confront destructive conflict and transform it into constructive conflict. Dr Bell’s impact has earned her the honour of being the first and only woman to have her statue erected in the Manchester Town Hall as a tribute to her work to reduce gun and gang crime in Manchester. Her successful strategy has enabled a 92% decrease in gun and gang crime in the area, and Erinma tirelessly continues to fight for the cause, focussing her work upon issues such as Restorative Justice, Peace and Conflict Resolution as well as Peace Making, Peace Building and Peace Keeping. Whilst serving as Deputy Lieutenant of County of Greater Manchester as a representative to Her Majesty the Queen, due to her passion for community peace which has seen her travel widely to share her stories and experiences with others seeking peace in countries across the world. We would like to thank Dr Bell for taking the time to talk to us and the inspiration that she provided. It is easy to decide to step back from society and not try to make a change for peace, because what can one single voice achieve? Dr Bell inspired otherwise. Her story teaches that one voice can make a change because one voice inspires more voices and in turn, social change for peace can occur. Her motto of being ‘non-PC’ really changed how I view discussions regarding cultural differences and the different lifestyles adopted in our society. She highlighted that asking questions that many feel stupid asking doesn’t show your lack of knowledge of a culture but is an important aspect of building bridges in communities. Therefore, we should take time to understand one another in order to take steps towards peace together!
