Girls at Westonbirt shine in GCSE results
GIRLS at Westonbirt School have once again shined in their GCSE exams, with some taking them a year or two early.
Sisters Sally and Gemma Gibbs, from London, led the way at the Tetbury-based school as Sally, who is in year 10, received an A in science, an A* in French while Gemma, who is in year 9, also received an A* in French.
Sally said all their hard work had been worth it.
"We are so thrilled to have achieved the very best," she said.
"We are a bit competitive with each other but we support each other more."
Gemma added: "We’ve had fantastic support from our teachers and house mistresses but most particularly our mum."
Another star student was Yemi Greene, from Malmesbury, who received five As and six A*s and will now go into the school’s Oxbridge preparation course.
Six students took advantage of the early entry for year 10 and received four A*s and two As in maths.
Headmistress Natasha Dangerfield said: "We are proud of our students and their great achievements. They have all done very well.
"Our maths department is a vibrant area of the school and the staff push the girls to achieve as much as they can in the most positive way.
"We have already gained fifth place out of 28 schools that took part in the South West Schools Maths Challenge this year and delighted that this talented year 10 group will embark upon their A-level syllabus from September."
The school declined to release the overall statistics of their GCSE results.
