Cheltenham Ladies College grades take a tumble

Cheltenham Ladies College is among a number of elite private schools to fall down the exam rankings following the introduction of an overhauled A-Levels system.

With notable former students including Home Secretary Amber Rudd, former Conservative MP Cheryl Gillan and actress Talulah Riley, the girls school has dropped out of the so-called ‘90% club’ where 90% of grades achieved are Grade B and above.

At £11,870 per term, the girls school is the second most expensive school country, behind only Hurtwood House in Dorking, Surrey.

A place at the school, which was described as “excellent” in a 2014 report by the Independent Schools Inspectorate, is subject to entrance exams or A* grades at GCSE level.

The Sunday Times figures (see above) revealed that the number of students achieving grades A*-B has declined each year since 2015, seeing the school drop from 33rd highest to 74th in the Sunday Times school ranking.

However, Cheltenham Ladies College has seen an improvement in it’s GCSE results. The school has leaped 15 places from 47th in 2015 to 32nd in both 2016 and 2017, with over 90% of students achieving grades A*-B in 2017.

  1. I run a vape store web directory and we have had a listing from a vape store in the United States that also offers CBD goods. A Month later, PayPal has contacted use to claim that our account has been restricted and have requested us to take away PayPal as a payment solution from our vape store directory site. We do not sell CBD products like CBD oil. We solely provide web marketing solutions to CBD firms. I have looked into Holland & Barrett– the UK’s Reputable Wellness Retail store and if you take a good peek, you will see that they supply a comparatively comprehensive series of CBD goods, particularly CBD oil and they also happen to accept PayPal as a settlement method. It seems that PayPal is administering double standards to different firms. As a result of this stipulation, I can no longer take PayPal on my CBD-related website. This has restricted my payment choices and presently, I am seriously reliant on Cryptocurrency payments and straightforward bank transfers. I have consulted a lawyer from a Magic Circle law practice in London and they stated that what PayPal is doing is absolutely unlawful and discriminatory as it ought to be applying an uniform standard to all firms. I am still to consult an additional legal representative from a US law practice in London to see what PayPal’s legal position is in the United States. In the meantime, I would be extremely appreciative if anybody here at targetdomain could provide me with substitute payment processors/merchants that work with CBD firms.
