GCSE celebrations at Withington Girls’ School

With 47.4% of exam results achieved at grade 9 and 70.4% of grades achieved at grade 8 or higher, there were hugs, smiles and tears of joy as pupils completing Year 11 at Withington Girls’ School opened their envelopes and took in their well-earned achievements.

Withington’s Headmistress, Mrs Sarah Haslam, said: “We are so very proud of each and every one of our pupils. With a return to the pre-pandemic approach to this year’s public examinations, we must not forget that these pupils were also impacted during several key years of their education by the dramatic adjustments to everyday life that we all had to make.

“Supported by our excellent staff team, they did not lose focus and they have worked hard to fulfil their potential. Their reward is a confident continuation of their life’s journey, with the vast majority choosing to do so at Withington’s Sixth Form.”

The Withington Upper Fifth of 2023 achieved 89% of grades at grade 7 and above and include nine students who achieved 10 grade 9s. Over a quarter of the cohort achieved all grade 8 or 9 across nine of more GCSE subjects. They will be joined by a group of new students from schools across Greater Manchester and beyond, who have also excelled in their GCSE examinations.

Amongst the pupils celebrating with smiles and hugs was Isabelle Burns, a talented U21 GB national youth dancer who has successfully combined her academic studies at Withington with training for national dance competitions, achieving top grades in her GCSEs, including nine at grade 9.

A talented ballroom and Latin dancer, Isabelle, who is from Wilmslow and joined Withington in Year 7, has represented Great Britain in international competitions including in Vienna in 2021 and Poland earlier this year. She is staying on at Withington for Sixth Form where she will prepare for A Levels in Further Maths, Maths, Chemistry and Biology, and she then hopes to study Natural Sciences.

“Whilst training hard for international competitions, I was also studying for my GCSEs but I found Withington to be really supportive. My dancing means that I have had to be disciplined and prioritise my subjects with good time management skills but the teachers have been very accommodating, always providing constructive feedback and the other pupils have been really supportive too,” she said.

Didsbury pupil Uma Abbas was delighted with her clean sweep of ten grade 9s and also praised Withington’s extra-curricular opportunities. Having played football in the school club and previously representing WGS at hockey and athletics, she said, “The extra-curricular activities here have been amazing, giving me the opportunity to mix with different year groups across the school. Academically, the teachers at Withington have been very supportive and I couldn’t have achieved these unbelievable results without them.”

Poppy Winnard, from Bowdon, said, “When choosing schools, Withington was always my first choice. We had a family friend who was in the Sixth Form here and she used to tell me I seemed like a Withington girl. At the time, I didn’t know what that meant but it’s been the right place for me. I‘ve always felt comfortable here in an environment that’s really helped me to develop and grow as a person. There are different ways to learn and that is really embraced here.”

Scarlett Holmes, from Altrincham, enjoys football and is a member of Withington’s extra-curricular football club. With A Level choices in Biology, English Literature and Religious Studies for A Level, she has aspirations to go on to study Clinical Psychology at university. She said, “I feel really privileged to have gone to school with such like-minded, friendly people. I was happy with my results but I was particularly pleased to have achieved a Grade 9 in English Literature as I had worked very hard to improve my previous grades in the subject. I have found the WGS community very supportive and I have made memories and forged great friendships.

Open Days for entry to Withington Girls’ School will be held on Thursday 2nd November and Saturday 4th November – see www.wgs.org for more details on 2024 Admissions.
