A level Results 2018

Many congratulations to Lancaster Girls’ Grammar School Year 13 students for such a fantastic set of results!

The students have been rewarded for all their hard work and commitment with excellent results. 74% of all grades were at A*- B with a remarkable 44% at the very highest A* and A grades. Forty students gained at least 3 A levels at grade A and above, with nine students gaining at least 3 A* grades.

One of the school’s many top performing students is Megan Dillon. Megan gained two A* and one A grades as well as contributing fully to school sporting life as Sports’ Captain. Megan is also U19 Lancashire table tennis champion and competes at a national level. She leaves behind a legacy of increased interest and success in table tennis at LGGS.  Megan will be studying Dentistry at Newcastle University. Another high performing student who has made a great contribution to school life and local theatre is Niamh Fraser. Niamh gained two A* and one A grade while continuing to develop her acting skills and was recently part of the Duke’s summer production. Katherine Deakin, who gained 3 A*, is one of six students who have gained places at Oxbridge. Katherine will be studying Geography at St Catherine’s College, Oxford.  Another outstanding student Marianne Rees, who gained   three A* and one A grade, will be continuing her passion for Computer Science at Leeds University.

There were some very strong performances from students who joined Lancaster Girls’ Grammar School Sixth Form from other schools.  Deputy Head Girl Jen White, who joined LGGS from Central High School, gained a fantastic three A* grades and will be studying History and Politics at London School of Economics. Another former Central High School student, Maya Hassan-Rawcliffe, also gained three A* grades and will now develop her fantastic talent in art with a foundation year.

The high success rate means the students have secured their places at their chosen universities to study a wide range of courses including Medicine, Dentistry. Law, Engineering, Politics and International relations in addition to the more traditional subjects such as Sciences, English, History, Geography and Languages.

Headteacher Mrs Jackie Cahalin said “At Lancaster Girls’ Grammar School Sixth Form we aim to support every student in finding their place in the world as happy, healthy, fulfilled young people, ready for their future. Academic success is a key part of this. However also important are the skills our students have developed through a range of opportunities including sports, arts, music, leadership posts and the Duke of Edinburgh Award.

The students and staff have worked incredibly hard to achieve these excellent  results. Everybody at LGGS would like to congratulate our Year 13 and wish them all the very best for the future.”
