The school, which is located in Jesmond, reported a pass rate of 100%.

Students from Newcastle High School for Girls were in celebration last week, as they received their A Level results.

The class of 2023 achieved outstanding grades, with most going on to study further education at top universities across the country, despite being the cohort unable to sit formal GCSE exams in 2021 due to Covid-19 restrictions.

The private all-girls school, which is located in Jesmond, reported a 100% pass rate, with over 40% of students achieving top grades.

Newcastle High School for Girls’ Headteacher, Michael Tippett said:  “A Levels are possibly the most challenging exams any student will sit – but this is especially true for a cohort who were impacted so heavily during the pandemic when studying for their GCSEs. I applaud their hard work and resilience and am so proud of everything they have achieved.”

Mr Tippett, who will be leaving the school after 28 years at the end of August, said: “This year’s students will always be particularly special for me as they are the last A Level cohort I will see complete their education at NHSG, and I could not be more delighted to be spending my final NHSG A Level results day surrounded by the Class of 2023.

Amanda Hardie, Deputy Head Academic, and Acting Head of the school from this September, said:  “You simply can’t deny the benefits of an all-girl education – a productive environment that empowers girls to learn without limits and be the girl they want to be.

“Ambitions are always strong amongst the NHSG student community, and I am sure we will hear this cohort’s names mentioned in the years to come as they go on to achieve great things in their chosen field and blaze a trail of success.”
