James Allen’s Girls’ School’s (JAGS) Year 13 cohort celebrated a 100 per cent pass rate in their A-levels.

Around a third of all A-level grades at the Dulwich school were A*s, 70 per cent of all grades were either A* or A, and 91 per cent were A* to B.

Almost half of the students at the school achieved at least three A*s or As.

Success was achieved in a wide range of languages, from French to Russian, to Japanese and more in between.

English was also a notable success with over 90 per cent passing at A* or A.

Headteacher Sally Anne Huang said: “It’s once again a real privilege to see JAGS pupils gaining these excellent results and hearing their exciting plans for the next stage of their lives.

“Not only have they secured wonderful grades, but they have done so in a challenging period of A-level reform.

“I am incredibly proud of them and know that they are about to have a truly positive impact on the world.”

Head girl Faaria will read engineering at Oxford, having gained A*s in maths and further maths, A grades in physics and chemistry, and an A in Latin at AS level.

“I’ve always loved maths and science,” she said. “I know it will be difficult but I want to focus on automotive engineering. I might even work in Formula 1!

“The sixth form at JAGS is the place to be. You really value your education so much more when you’ve worked hard for it.

“I appreciate now what the staff have done for me; it’s been an incredible journey.”

Clodagh, who achieved A*s in English and maths, and A grades in religious studies and French, will head to Cambridge to read Law.

“I realised it combined logical analysis, debating skills and stylised language – all aspects of my A-levels I enjoy,” she said of her chosen degree subject.

“I love religious studies and the role of religious parallel legal systems and how religion interacts with the law is fascinating.”

Student Aliyah will take up a two-year apprenticeship with the Civil Service, working for HMRC.

“I took A levels in politics, French, and maths, and an AS level in chemistry,” said Aliyah.

“My end goal is to work in politics and I think I will have so much more life experience from this scheme, having worked alongside people of all ages. It has opened my eyes to other options.”
