|100% A Level Passes at Lady Margaret School|
Parsons Green students celebrate outstanding results
Hundreds of students in Hammersmith & Fulham are celebrating after receiving their A Level results on Thursday.
Lady Margaret School in Parsons Green is leading the way, with its girls achieving a 100% pass rate and with 22 students gaining an A* in at least one of their subjects.
Between them, the school’s pupils gained 36 A* grades, 91 As, 86 Bs and 63 Cs. The pass rate also improved to 100% with a 40% pass rate of students gaining A*-A – up two percentage points on last year’s figure of 38%.
Leading the charge was Bethan Waskett, 18, who racked up three A*s in biology, chemistry and fine art. She is now embarking on a gap year before planning to read medicine.
" I was so shocked when I opened the envelope to finds these grades on the sheet," says Bethan. " It was really hard work getting these grades and the exams were just as hard as people said they would be."
Isabeau Gervais, 18, who lives in Barons Court, is off to do an art foundation course later this year after she received two A*s in art and textiles and an A in history of art.
The promising artist will attend the Prince’s Drawing School in east London before going on to university. “It was blood, sweat and tears. It was such hard work as I was literally in the library every day until 6pm getting my revision done but thankfully it is all done now," says Isabeau.
“I am going to a small drawing school on a course with just 25 people and then I will be off to university to get my degree as I aim to get into graphics or illustrations when I finish my studies.”
Jeta Zhubi, 18, cannot wait for her year abroad on the Erasmus programme as part of her degree, when she goes to read French and Spanish at New College, Oxford University, after gaining four A Levels.
The linguist achieved an A* in Spanish, two As in French and maths, and a B in further maths.
