GSA Girls’ Buck the National Trend
Last week, the Girls’ School Association (GSA) reported that students in independent girls’ schools are performing well in science, in direct contrast to data for the UK as a whole recently published by the OECD. Girls at GSA schools are bucking the national trend, with 55% of students taking STEM subjects at A-level. Just under two fifths take maths and just over two fifths take at least one science, with a quarter of girls taking at least one language A-level.
