Yorkshire’s Leading Girls’ School for A Levels 2017
The Mount has come top of Yorkshire girls schools and third for A Levels in league tables published annually by the Sunday Times.
The table, which orders the top independent and state secondary schools in the country, lists The Mount in the top 150 schools using double-weighted A Level results and GCSE results. The Mount scored 81.2 for A Level A* to B grades and 55.7 for GCSE A* to A grades based on results published in August. The 81.2 score places The Mount third in the region behind Queen Ethelburgas and Bradford Grammar School.
Girls’ A Level Education
The Mount, which nurtures a rounded education and encourages a life-long love of learning, was a top girls school in the region for A Level results. Research published by the Girls’ Schools Association shows that learning in certain areas, particularly STEM (science, technology, engineering, maths) subjects has girls doing far better in all-girl schools than in co-educational settings.
Leavers from The Mount progress to a broad range of university destinations. In this year alone, girls went on to study courses in Ivy League, Oxbridge and Russell Group universities.
