Headmistress Olivera Raraty, said: “I am really delighted by these results and some exceptional personal triumphs by girls who have achieved so much through the course of sixth-form.
“It’s been a good year for the Extended Project Qualifications, too, with many achieving A* and A, and I believe that these are becoming good markers of ability for universities who like this independent study qualification.
“It’s not all about results, of course – I am just as pleased to see that MSJ girls are likeable, well-rounded individuals.”
“They have all sorts of different talents, interests and dreams for their future and it is a pleasure to spend time with them.
“I wish them the very best in the next phase of their life: they have a lot to bring to the world and I will follow their progress with interest.”
