Once again we are immensely proud of the resilience, tenacity and integrity shown by our A Level students and staff amid the challenges brought by the COVID-19 pandemic. Their hard work and positive outlook resulted in 86% of our students achieving grades awarded at A* to B and 89% meeting their first choice university offer.

Impressive results like these demonstrate consistent commitment to academic excellence. Building on Heathfield’s continued success, the school’s initial analysis projects a value-added score of +0.75, marking a significant increase in the expected attainment of the pupils in each subject they take and firmly placing Heathfield as one of the leading independent schools in the region.

A large percentage are destined for leading Russell Group universities such as Exeter, Durham, Newcastle, Edinburgh and UCL, and other top destinations to study a broad range of subjects including veterinary nursing, costume design, film and television, education, and business marketing.

As our young women embark on the next chapter of their lives, they take with them an education that extends far beyond their academic grades – they are equipped with self-belief, a sense of individuality, and a desire to make the world a better place.

Even though this has not been the most conventional year for any school by any means, our latest A level cohort have demonstrated positivity, tenacity and resilience and come through to achieve well-earned results. Today is the culmination of the girls’ efforts throughout their school careers as well as the support from dedicated and committed staff, and rightly deserves celebration and recognition for all they have achieved.

Perhaps most importantly, whilst creating friendships to last a lifetime, the girls have developed and grown into kind, well-rounded and confident young women who will contribute positively to their communities. We are so proud of each and every one of them.

In summary:

  • A*:    30%
  • A*-A: 65%
  • A*-B: 86%
  • A*-C: 96%
  • A*-D: 100%

Last year’s Head Girl, Minty, achieved A* across all her subjects in addition to an A at AS level (the highest grade) in Further Mathematics.

In addition to gaining A*-A in all their subjects, Imaan and Olivia both achieved A*-A in their EPQ (Extended Project Qualification) which has contributed 24 and 28 UCAS points to their choice of university, UCL and Durham respectively.

All departments at Heathfield have achieved highly, with special mention to the following whose students all achieved A*-A: Drama, Economics, History, Music, PE, Photography, Religious Studies and Spanish.
