Headmistress Antonia Beary said: “It is a great joy to see so many girls achieve such impressive results again this year.

“It is particularly pleasing to see girls who joined us lacking in confidence but went on to thrive and flourish at Mayfield, today being rewarded by outstanding grades which reflect their ability and confirm their potential.

“These results are a great credit to Mayfield’s inspirational and dedicated staff, as well as the girls themselves, who have all worked hard.

“I am confident that another cohort of Mayfield girls are leaving us ready and prepared to respond positively to the opportunities and challenges the future holds for them.”
