Sacred Heart of Mary Girl's School

Students at a school have been celebrating their “amazing” A-level results today.

Around 23pc of the grades awarded at the sixth form at Sacred Heart of Mary Girl’s School, St Mary’s Lane, Upminster, were either A* or A to students’ delight.

Emma Kearney also exceeded expectations by achieving an A* in maths, economics and history which means she has gained her place at Cambridge University to study economics.

Headteacher Kim O’Neill said: “We have a wide ability range in the 6th Form and we are equally as proud of the girls who worked hard to exceed expectations particularly those who took the new BTEC Business Awards where over 70pc of the grades awarded were Distinctions.

“These results are testament to the hard work and commitment of our talented staff as well as the girls.

“Congratulations!

“We are very proud of you all!”
