The Bermuda High School for Girls today announced its GCSE/IGCSE results for the academic year 2017—18.

87 per cent of all GCSE/IGCSE grades received by BHS students this year were A*-C. Top scorer, Katie Grainge, earned 11A* grades — an outstanding achievement! The percentage of A* and A grades earned by BHS girls was 40 per cent, well above the 23 per cent achieved by girls in the UK (Joint Council for Qualifications, 2018). This highlights the value of a BHS education with teachers who have in—depth experience educating girls. The majority of our students sat 9 to 11 GCSE/IGCSE examinations.

Erin Jones — 7A*, 3A, 1B

Natalie Calderon — 6A*, 4A (including a Level 9 in Drama)
