GCSE results: Dame Alice Owen’s School, Potters Bar
DAME Alice Owen’s announced the school’s second best ever set of GCSE results.
Just over 94 per cent of this year’s students secured five A* to C grades including English and maths.
The news comes a week after the Dugdale Hill Lane school announced another year of record breaking A-level results.
Headteacher Alan Davison told the Welwyn Hatfield Times’ Potters Bar Edition: “I am delighted to say the school secured an excellent set of GCSE results.
“Our second best ever performance with 94.2 per cent of all Year 11 students securing A* to C grades including English and maths and 96.1 per cent of all students securing five A* to C grades without English and maths.

Among the top achieving students was Katerina Savvas, who landed nine A* grades and will hope to be multi-lingual by the time her A-level results are announced, because she is staying on at the school to study English, Italian, Spanish and French.
Among the students receiving straight A* grades were Jacob Davies, Yasmin Murray, Sriya Varadharajan and Deborah Berman.
