Stunning A-Level Results

There is simply no substitute for hard work says Loreto Grammar School Headteacher Jane Beever after her girls recorded another set of stunning A Level results.

“Colleagues and students have embraced the necessary changes associated with the new linear style of assessment and the more rigorous curriculum and worked tirelessly to achieve these superb results.   There are no ifs or buts or maybes at Loreto, it’s simply hard work if you want to succeed.”

“Over 75% of all grades were at A* to B with over 40% at either A* or A,” added Mrs Beever, “which all means our students have the opportunity to study some truly exciting and challenging courses at the country’s very best universities.”

Pictured from left to right are just some of the Altrincham school’s high achievers: Erin Reddington, who is now going to Newcastle to study History; Grace Wilson, who will study Fashion Design at Leeds Beckett; Neha Morrison, who read Medicine at Newcastle; Lucy O’Donnell, who will study Anatomy at Bristol; Hannah O’Donnell, who will read Psychology and Biology at Newcastle; Hollie Ross-Kenny, who is going up to Newcastle to read Medicine; Hannah Power, who will read Biomedical Sciences at Newcastle; Georgia Brooks who will read Economics and Management at Worcester College, Oxford and Emilia Russell, who will read General Engineering at Durham.

Loreto Grammar School’s identical twins Hannah and Lucy O’Donnell said team work was the secret to their identical grades in identical subjects in their A Levels.

The Timperley twins each got an A* in Psychology with A grades in Biology and History, though Lucy admitted “I did start a physics course but then swapped after one week when Hannah told me I should really be doing Psychology.”

Hannah said: “There is absolutely no sibling rivalry, after all we are a team.” Lucy added: “We share the same friends, both play the piano and enjoy lacrosse and do everything together.”

Hannah said: “It will be hard to be separated as I am going to Newcastle and Lucy is going to Bristol,” but Lucy chimed: “At least there is a plane that flies direct between the cities for when we just can’t bear it any longer.”

Both girls agreed they had loved their school lives: Hannah said: “You can talk to anyone about anything at any time. The support is just wonderful.” while Lucy added: “Unless you’ve been you can’t imagine how special it has been.”
