The headline for A level results at Farnborough Hill is the terrific increase in A* grades: up by 12% to an impressive 26% this year. This shows that Farnborough Hill is certainly bucking the predicted downturn in the top grades of A* and A; in fact all the girls who took Further Mathematics and/or Physics achieved A* grades: amazing! The school was delighted with all its excellent results, which included 100% pass rate, an astounding 79% of results at A* – B grades and 98% at A* to C, up another 2% on last year.
Also pleasing was the fact that just under half of all the students gained at least 3 A grades. Top performers were: Laura Doherty, Vicki Patel and Paloma Vince with an astonishing 4 A*s each; Erica Thake with 3 A* and an A; Amelia Cameron, Emily Ellis, Karen Ellis, Kloe Storrie and Caroline Watson with 2 A* and an A; Louise Biden with A*AAB; Louise Beynon, Bobbie Cattani, Zehra Rubbani and Annie Starkey with A*AA.

They have been an outstanding year group in terms of their academic achievement and their commitment to their studies.
