Today’s A Level results have seen Queen Margaret’s continue on its impressive upward trajectory, the girls school said.
Queen Margaret’s is celebrating after 62% of all girls achieved three or more A*-B grades.
Half of all girls secured two or more A*-A grades – a figure which has gone from strength to strength over the last five years.
The average A Level class size of five students means teachers “have had the opportunity to really understand the needs of the individual girls”.
“Despite the tumultuous circumstances schools across the country have been faced with this year, QM continued to diligently nurture its A Level students when they were forced to learn from home during lockdown, even after examinations were cancelled. This is reflected in the grades the girls have achieved; 19% of entries scored an A* grade – more than double last year’s national average.”
Head teacher Sue Baillie said:
I’m delighted for our Upper Sixth girls, they’ve had to ride a wave of uncertainty over the last few months, days, and even hours but they’ve coped admirably.
I’m thrilled that we’ve been able to support them so well along the way, offering the best environment in which they could achieve such excellent results.
