A headteacher has praised the work of Hatfield pupils after GCSE results were published.

A total of 75.4 per cent of pupils at Bishop’s Hatfield Girls’ School picked up five A* to C grades, including English and maths, it has been announced.

Overall, 30 per cent of all the GCSE grades were either A* or A.

Theodora Nickson, headteacher, said: “We are incredibly proud of our girls’ achievement which is a real testament to the hard work put in by the girls and their teachers, all made possible by continuing support from parents and carers.

“These fantastic results mean that the girls start their A Levels with confidence of future success, aspiring to places in top universities.”

Mrs Nickson said she was particularly proud of the school’s EBACC score of 46.61 per cent.

The score measures the percentage of girls achieving six A* to C grades in English, maths, two sciences, a modern foreign language and either history or geography.
