GIRLS at The Towers Convent School in Upper Beeding are celebrating another successful year of GCSE results.

Every Year 11 pupil gained five or more passes at grades A* to C including maths, English and science.

Most of the girls take ten or 11 subjects at GCSE and this year six girls gained all of their subjects at A* or A.

As usual these girls have also been heavily involved in many other extra-curricular activities.

Helena Dunlavey from Storrington not only has ten A* grades and an A but also has both an Academic and Art scholarship to Lancing College as well as having been Captain of the Show Jumping Team.

Catherine Crick from Lindfield found the time to be Head Girl, Head of Choir and go to Lourdes to help in the Arundel and Brighton annual pilgrimage both this year and last as well as study for her GCSEs.

Charlotte Lee from Upper Beeding has been very involved in local Scouts and was selected to attend the Scout Jamboree in Sweden this summer whilst Lucy Barnett from Findon Valley has learned to fly whist being a member of the ATC and even went to Africa last summer to help at an Aids Orphanage.

Lily Tuhey from Arundel is also celebrating ten GCSEs all at A* and A.

Headmistress Carole Baker said: “The girls work hard and deserve their results but they also find the time to devote to other worthwhile activities. I am very proud of all that they achieve.”
