BREAKING NEWS: A-Level delight in Ottery
Joy at The King’s School
‘AMAZING an outstanding’ students at The King’s School proved yet again they’re top class after scoring a 100per cent A2 Level pass rate.
Teenagers saw a tense summer wait end in joy this morning (Thursday) as more than half of all marks were above B grade and a quarter at either A* or A standard.
“These results were obviously the culmination of a great deal of hard work,” said headteacher Faith Jarrett and chair of governors Edward Bloomfield.
“University places this year are extremely tight so we’re waiting to hear the outcome of clearing applications, but we’ve been really pleased to celebrate with all those who have secured them already.
“We’re delighted the students have achieved so many personal successes, but are equally pleased with the huge commitment these young people have made to life across the school and beyond.
“They really are a credit to themselves and to their families and we all wish them every success for the future.”
