Of the 24 pupils of Stormont School who took entrance exams for private secondary schools, no fewer than 19 won scholarships at private secondary schools.

The scholarships, offered by schools including Queenswood in Brookmans Park, St Albans School, and St Martha’s in Barnet, will help the winning girls pursue talents arts, sport, and music with caskh prizes or extra specialist tuition.

Headteacher Sharon Martin said: “We are so proud of all of the girls and how hard they have worked to achieve such excellent results. With small class sizes and a focus on the individual, at Stormont we are able to work with parents and pupils to help girls reach their full potential and find the right senior school for them.”

The girls were offered over 50 places between them, so many have a choice of options for the next stage of their education.

The private school in The Causeway charges about £4,000/term, and boasts class sizes of just 24.
