‘The girls have achieved absolutely outstanding results, they have worked extremely hard over the last 2 years and I am so proud of what they have achieved together with the dedication and expertise of the staff; Westfield school has achieved great results year on year because of our ability to offer individual support from the moment the girls choose their options.
‘It’s wonderful to see how busy our girls are outside their academic studies with some of them spending time in their summer break volunteering in conservation projects in Costa Rica!’
Aoife has been at Westfield since the start of Senior School and has achieved absolutely fantastic results which included Grade 9 in nine subjects, 1 grade eight and an A^in Further Maths!
She said, ‘I was really nervous coming in this morning but I am so happy. I have done much better than I thought. I was completely shocked about some subjects but I am relieved. I am going to stay on at Westfield and I am going to study Maths, Biology, Physics and Chemistry for A Level.’
Maria Athena, who is also a national sailing champion, has also achieved fantastic results with 5 at grade nine, 1 at eight, 2 at grade five and 1 at grade 6. ‘I am so happy with my results. I did much better than I expected, especially in the science subjects.’
