“We are celebrating unparalleled results this year and are hugely proud of all our girls. They have joined us at various stages in their education – at 11, 13 or 16 – and grasped the opportunities at Prior’s Field, achieving so much both in the classroom and beyond. We are a school focused on the development of unique individuals and the wide range of universities that our students go on to, and diversity of courses they follow, reflects their huge array of individual talents, interests and future ambitions.
We have also been delighted this year by outstanding EPQ results, representing a minimum of 90 hours work on top of A-Levels and demanding intensive research, linked to a student’s intended degree. We are seeing an increasing number of our girls rising to the challenge of this qualification.”
