The Head, Adam Pettitt, commented: ‘Bravo Highgate! This was going to be a more challenging year to secure an A* given the introduction of more material, higher conceptual ceilings and tougher exams in three of the so-called core subjects, but it certainly seems that these reforms have inspired able pupils to cut their teeth on bigger ideas and less guided questions. Who wouldn’t be nervous faced with changes, and there’s more to come, but it’s a delight and a relief to see Highgate’s young people succeeding on these academic measures while enjoying and committing to so much else beside.’
