THERE was a grade A performance from girls at Queenswood School this year.
Seventy per cent of all grades achieved at the Brookmans Park school were either A* or A - that's 383 out of 545 subjects.
And of the 61 candidates, 14 notched a clean sweep of A*s or As in all their subjects.
Almost all subjects made a significant contribution to these successes: not only was there strength in the optional areas of drama, PE, Spanish, design technology, music, religious studies and geography, but also in the core subjects.
