A Level Results – 13 August 2020
Many congratulations to all Year 13 students at Lady Margaret School for their excellent A Level results this summer!
Following this week’s announcements about the awarding of A Level grades this summer, we are delighted to share our updated ‘headline figures’ for this year’s A Level results.
This has been a challenging academic year for all of us and it is fantastic to see how well our students have achieved this summer despite Lockdown and the cancellation of the public exams in June 2020.
Overall 97% of grades were A*-C and 84% of grades attained were A*-B. 53% of grades were A*-A. Fourteen girls attained at least three A/A* grades at A Level, which is a fantastic achievement. There were nine A* grades in English, eight in History, six in Maths, and three in Economics, four French and in Spanish. In French, Spanish, Politics, History, Fine Art, Textiles, Mathematics, Further Mathematics, Geography, Physics, Psychology and Music no student attained below a C grade.
This Autumn our girls will be starting courses in many different subjects, at universities right across the country, including:
Law – Herford College, University of Oxford

Politics and International Relations – University of Bristol

This year we have two students who are going to study abroad, one going to study Psychology at the University of Amsterdam and one going to the University of Chicago to study Engineering. Three girls will be starting Art Foundation courses.
Congratulations to all of our Year 13 students who worked incredibly hard last year, many overcoming significant challenges outside their academic studies; these results are a testament to their commitment to their studies, and to the dedication of our staff in preparing the girls for the public examinations. We wish everyone well as they begin a new stage of their education!
