There was plenty to celebrate at Loreto College this morning, with the vast majority of pupils securing the grades they needed in order to pursue their chosen pathways. This year’s top achievers were Lucy Baker and Elizabeth Burridge, who both achieved four A* grades. Elizabeth will commence her degree in medicine this September, whilst Lucy will read History and Ancient History at Durham. Outgoing Head Girl Karis Rable achieved three A* grades and a grade A, and eloquently thanked her teachers for all the support they have provided over the years, as did Sienna Harrod who achieved three A grades.

This year group has had an even more challenging time than most, with the first lockdown meaning that they had no previous experience of sitting major external exams, and the second one affecting their learning in the Lower Sixth, so our Year 13 students should be particularly pleased with what they have achieved.
