Exam Results & Leavers’ Destinations

A Level Results 2020

Channing Girls Enjoy Success!

We are delighted that our Channing Y13 students now have the A Level grades we hoped for. Improving on last year’s already excellent results, 32.2% of all entries were awarded the top grade of A* with 78.4% of all entries achieving A*/A. 

We are thrilled by the unparalleled depth and breadth of the university destinations and courses this year. These include degree courses in Natural Sciences, English, History, Human, Social and Political Sciences, Geography and Classical Archaeology and Ancient History at Oxford and Cambridge, with a huge range of exciting courses at other top institutions, including Law, Medicine, Music, Finance, Psychology, International Relations, Hispanic Studies and Robotic Engineering. 

Outgoing Head, Mrs Barbara Elliott applauded the resilience and positivity of all UK Y13 students over the last, very challenging months. “At Channing, their approach to studying and life under the shadow of Covid-19 has been a source of inspiration to us all and has further strengthened this exceptional school community”.

I would also like to personally thank the Channing staff for their hard work and our parents for the support they have shown their daughters and the School. I am proud and delighted to build on Mrs Elliott’s successes, by leading Channing into the next phase of its development.

GCSE Results 2020

Following our A Level success we are also pleased to announce an extremely positive set of GCSE results for Channing students this summer. I am delighted to report that in line with previous years, 67% of all results were graded 8-9 while 89.1% were graded 7-9. 

Over 25% of our Year 11 students achieved a clean sweep of Grades 8-9, including 8 students who are celebrating all Grade 9s. Two of these achieved a stunning 11 Grade 9 results. Excitingly, this year was the first time Year 11 students completed GCSE Further Maths and all 15 students achieved 100% grades 8-9.

Our results this year demonstrate exactly how much life at Channing is a family affair.  Nine of the Year 11 students receiving their grades today have older sisters who got their A level results last week, making it a week of double celebrations for those families. Getting their GCSE grades has also marked a milestone for Antonina and Mia, who are respectively the third and fourth Channing sister.  The family ties don’t end there: twins Mali and Tori are not only national netball superstars but also achieved 100% grades 8-9, results almost as identical as they are!

Congratulations to every one of our students whose hard work over the past few years has now been justly rewarded, and my thanks to our dedicated staff who have acted with care and integrity throughout.
