A comment from Mrs Acquisto, Executive Head

“Incredible results, incredible staff and girls for an impossibly disruptive year. Grit turned to gold. Well done!”

A comment from Mrs Jeffrey, Head of the Senior School

“2020 will go down in our history books as one closest to our motto, Per Angusta Ad Augusta, ‘through trials unto triumphs’. Throughout the trials of Covid-19 and lockdown the staff and girls showed their resilience in and commitment to their academics. I am so proud of each member of the class of 2020, as well as the teachers who ensured continued and thorough learning and teaching despite the challenges of the year. Congratulations on the wonderful results, I am in awe of you all.”
