THE name "Queen's school" was applied to a fictitious failing state school at the conference for head girls (TES, September 24).
We should like to point out to those who only skim the pages of The TES that 100 per cent of the students at the real Queen's school achieved at least five grades A*-C at GCSE this year, with 79.2 per cent grades A* and A.
