In total the Highgate school’s students notched up 84 per cent A* - A grades with half of all pupils achieving A*s and As across the board.

And ten students achieved A* grades in all their subjects.

Headmistress Barbara Elliott said: “I am so proud of my pupils’ achievements today. My exceptional teaching team prepared the girls well for their exams, placing equal importance on learning as well as developing their resilience and well-being.

“This is the final year of all A* to C grades before we move over to reformed subjects and it was certainly a great year to celebrate with the girls with such an impressive set of results,” Mrs Elliott added.
