Mayfield is celebrating an impressive set of A level results after what has been a challenging few years for those sitting public examinations.
Mayfield’s Upper Sixth girls have secured places at leading universities to study a wide range of courses including Architecture, Fashion, Fine Art, Law, Modern Languages, Medicine, Natural Sciences, Psychology, and Veterinary Medicine.
The girls have secured places at universities throughout the UK, including Edinburgh, Exeter, UCL and Royal Northern College of Music, with over 10% heading to Cambridge University, including twins Victoria and Valeria, who each achieved an outstanding four A*s, Distinction in AEA Maths and an EPQ; the girls were also recipients of prestigious national Arkwright Engineering Scholarships in the Sixth Form.
Headmistress Antonia Beary said: "This year perhaps more than ever, we are immensely proud of all that our Upper Sixth Leavers have achieved.
"Everyone holding an offer for this year, or deferred entry, has secured her place at University.
"At a time of uncertainty, they have shown a resilience and positive approach which has been rewarded by an impressive array of results.
She continued: "At a time when faith in young people is being questioned, I am confident that our Mayfield leavers of 2022 are well prepared for the next stage in their journey, whether that be degree apprenticeship with the Metropolitan Police or Natural Sciences at Cambridge; studying everything from Architecture to Veterinary Medicine throughout the UK and overseas.
"Not only have they confirmed that they can pass examinations, but more importantly, they know that they are part of an inclusive community providing a lifelong network of supportive friends and peers.
"They have the interpersonal skills and talents, not to mention the technical expertise, practised and honed over the lockdown and COVID years, to make the most of the opportunities ahead of them.
"I would also like to pay tribute to the teachers who have walked with them and supported them, particularly through the last few challenging years."
