GCSE Results 2015

At a time of increased pressure upon young people at GCSE, the Benenden girls can be very proud of their performance in this year’s exams, in which 58 girls (64 per cent) achieved at least eight A* or A grades. Ninety-four per cent of all grades were A* to B, and 31 girls swept the board with all A* and A grades.

These results were achieved alongside our full co-curricular programme of activities and academic enrichment, essential to the Complete Education we offer here at Benenden.
