Redmaids’ High School is celebrating the success of its Year 13 students’ A Level and International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma results including a total of five girls who are heading off to Oxford or Cambridge.

 Lily Bickers who gained three A*s and an A, and Isla Waring who gained 43 points in the IB Diploma are off to Cambridge.  

Starting at Oxford are Romilly Leech, also an IB student with 38 points, and Georgia Watts and Tilly Guthrie who gained three A*s, and an A*AA respectively at A Level.

 Tilly, who will be reading history at Oxford, says she owes her place to her teachers: “The support I’ve received couldn’t have been any better. I don’t think I would have made it without their belief in me.”

 Aisha Adelopo, who earned an A*and two As, securing her place at the University of Liverpool to study Medicine echoed Tilly’s sentiments. “The teachers give you some serious tough love! When I felt like giving up or didn’t think I could do it, they never stopped telling me that I could. Their encouragement and support goes above and beyond.”

  As well as these successes, Redmaids’ High is celebrating students going off to study a diverse range of subjects at top UK and overseas universities, starting the next exciting chapter in their lives.
