GCSE Results - 20 August 2020

Following last week’s A Level success at Lady Margaret School, Year 11 students have achieved a fantastic set of GCSE results.


English Language

English Literature


Both English and Maths

Grade 4 or above





Grade 5 or above





79% of our girls attained the English Baccalaureate. These are girls who attained 5 GCSEs with a minimum of Grade 4 of English and Maths, and a minimum of a grade 4 in three other ‘E Bacc’ subjects, which are: Sciences, History, Geography, French and Spanish.

Our overall Attainment 8 score is 67.6. 57% of grades in total were 9-7 and 88% of grades were 9-5.

Nine students attained all 8 and 9 grades, two of whom were awarded Grade 9 in all subjects.

These are excellent results and we are so proud of all girls in Year 11! Congratulations to everyone in Year 11, and, as for our A Level results, thank you to parents and carers for their support and encouragement and to staff for their hard work and commitment to the girls.

These results are based on Centre Assessed Grades submitted by the School to the Examination Boards in June 2020. In order to calculate the Centre Assessed Grades, staff worked very hard to ensure that these grades were based on a comprehensive range of data and work submitted by students. These grades were checked and moderated internally before being sent to the Examination Boards. Staff worked through our process with great care and precision to ensure that our submitted grades were accurate.

Our Year 11 students have shown remarkable perseverance and positivity over the last few months. They are to be commended for their commitment to their studies and for the ways in which they have supported each other through difficult times. These results have been calculated by staff who know them and have taught them well. Our thorough and robust process for calculating and checking these grades in school gives them integrity. Our students can be very proud of these results and of all they have achieved at Lady Margaret School. We look forward to welcoming many of them to Year 12 this September and we wish all of them every happiness and success in the next stage of their education.

Many congratulations to all Year 13 students at Lady Margaret School for their excellent A Level results this summer!

Following this week’s announcements about the awarding of A Level grades this summer, we are delighted to share our updated ‘headline figures’ for this year’s A Level results.

This has been a challenging academic year for all of us and it is fantastic to see how well our students have achieved this summer despite Lockdown and the cancellation of the public exams in June 2020.

Overall 97% of grades were A*-C and 84% of grades attained were A*-B. 53% of grades were A*-A. Fourteen girls attained at least three A/A* grades at A Level, which is a fantastic achievement. There were nine A* grades in English, eight in History, six in Maths, and three in Economics, four French and in Spanish. In French, Spanish, Politics, History, Fine Art, Textiles, Mathematics, Further Mathematics, Geography, Physics, Psychology and Music no student attained below a C grade.

This year we have two students who are going to study abroad, one going to study Psychology at the University of Amsterdam and one going to the University of Chicago to study Engineering. Three girls will be starting Art Foundation courses.

Congratulations to all of our Year 13 students who worked incredibly hard last year, many overcoming significant challenges outside their academic studies; these results are a testament to their commitment to their studies, and to the dedication of our staff in preparing the girls for the public examinations. We wish everyone well as they begin a new stage of their education!
