Today was an A Level Results day like no other but Portsmouth High School girls have all secured places at their choice of university and are well placed to move on to the next stage of their lives.
Despite the extraordinary circumstances surrounding this year’s A Level results, it has been another tremendously successful year at Portsmouth High School GDST.
The cohort of 2020 could understandably have felt cheated as they weren’t given a chance to sit any exams. However, they have all secured places at their choice of university including: Cambridge, Bristol, Exeter, Liverpool and Guildford Law School with courses ranging from Medicine, Veterinary Science, Law, History and Spanish to Games Design and Biological Sciences.
One of the keys to the Sixth Form successes was a programme of pre-university courses and seminars rolled out for pupils. It was devised in a bid to focus the energy pupils would have used for revision, in a proactive bid to prepare them for further education. The initiative brought more than 1,000 students together from across the Girls’ Day School Trust family of schools.
