Despite all of the challenges brought by the outbreak of Covid-19, there was, once again, much joy and many congratulations at Belfast Model School for Girls, where students and staff celebrated another year of outstanding GCSE / Level 2 results. 75% of the girls achieved 5 or more GCSEs at Grade A* – C. The majority (77%) of Year 12 students achieved a grade C or better in GCSE English Language and 51% achieved a grade C or better in GCSE Mathematics.
We know that the grades awarded today are valid, fair and reliable, as they are based on the intricate knowledge that this school holds about our students as learners and reflects their progress and achievements in learning across a broad range of subjects. These impressive results mean that most girls will return to school to study three subjects at Advanced Level over two years. Others will have the opportunity to embark on a ‘Steps’ Programme to study either two or three subjects at Advanced Level. over three years.
Many students, too many to mention individually, achieved 7 GCSEs at grades A*- C. This is a just reward for all the hard work and commitment of both students and staff. I have no doubt that the girls’ parents, who also gave such fantastic support, are feeling just as proud as we are feeling today.
We are delighted for our girls, their parents and families. Their hard work has paid off. Year 12 had the motivational mantra of ‘I can; I will’ – they certainly did! Well done to all!
