Students at Elizabeth Garrett Anderson School achieved the school’s best ever results today.

Over two thirds of the girls achieved at least five of the top grades including Maths and English.

Seven students achieved all A*s and As in over ten subjects.

Jo Dibb, Headteacher, was delighted with the girl’s achievements and said:

“There is an expectation that all girls at EGA with succeed and reach their potential. Students are absolutely committed to their learning and benefit from outstanding teaching and support.

These results show that EGA girls really are “high fliers” who will build on their success in the future.”

Sabrina Ahmed’s success far outreached her expectations. She achieved a 13 A*s and As

The 16 year-old, who won the UK Maths Challenge competition in year eight is looking forward to studying her favourite subject, maths and further maths, next year along with biology and chemistry next year at City and Islington College.

“I like to think I worked really hard at this,” Sabrina said. “I was hoping to do well but I didn’t think I’d get this many A*s.”

The teen from Camden, who represented EGA in the summer when Michelle Obama visited a London school, added: “I’ll probably go in medicine or finance, but I’m think more medicine now because I’ve got the grades for it.”

Megan Robinson, 16, of Wynford Road, was delighted with her As and Bs.

“I’m going on to do my A levels in psychology, sociology and English. I want to do sociology because I really enjoy studying it and I find it interesting. I don’t know what I’ll do in the future but I want it to be something English-based and creative.”

Megan will be studying at City and Islington College next year.

Lily Panayiotou, who lives in Archway, was thrilled to have achieved the grades she needed to progress onto her A levels and said: “I’m happy. I got everything I need.”

Lily will study English, law and photography.

“I’m looking to do a degree in law” she added.

Manuela Valencia, originally from Columbia, who now lives on Caledonian Road, got she needed to study a Level 3 BTEC in animal management at City and Islington College.

“I passed everything to do the course I wanted,” she said.

“I want to work in a zoo or travel the world to see animals all over the planet. I’m so excited. I love it, it’s my passion.”
