“Excellent” Exam Results For BHS Students

September 13, 2019

The Bermuda High School for Girls [BHS] has announced its GCSE/IGCSE results for the academic year 2018/2019.

A spokesperson said, “Once again, BHS has demonstrated the benefits of an all-girls education, where girls of all levels of academic ability achieve outstanding results. Forty-three percent of our GCSE/IGCSE grades were A* and A or the equivalent compared to an average of 20.8% in the UK. A quarter of these grades were A* or the equivalent with 14.5% of the grades at a Grade 9, which is considered higher than an A*.

“These excellent results are testament to the strong connection formed by the teacher-student partnership and our understanding of how girls thrive.”
