The headteacher of Channing School has championed the ability of her students to combat tougher exams on A-level results day.
Channing is once again among the top performing girls’ schools in the country after students achieved a 100per cent pass rate, with 86.7pc of grades at A* to B and 62.6pc at A* to A.
Headteacher Barbara Elliott said “I am very proud of my students’ achievements.
“Recent changes to the A-level courses have increased the challenges for all students, making it harder than ever to get top grades. Therefore these excellent results can be seen as an endorsement of a Channing education.”
Amelia Khavari was awarded three A*s and an A* for her EPQ and has a place at Imperial to read computing. Amelia’s EPQ was about the role of AI in games and she created a games programme which makes it impossible for the computer to be beaten.
