The King’s School grades are top class again!

STUDENTS at The King’s School are today (Thursday) celebrating another outstanding year of A-level results.

Pupils have notched an overall A2 level pass rate of 99.6per cent.

Headteacher Faith Jarrett and chair of governors Robin Mitchell told the Herald in a joint statement:

“We are delighted for the students who have worked so hard to achieve some truly outstanding results with almost 40% of all grades being at A* to B and two thirds of all grades at A* to C.

“These results were obviously the culmination of a great deal of hard work by the students, especially as they have had to deal with completely new AS and A2 courses and with the new A* grades.

“The Year 12 AS results this year were extremely pleasing with again some brilliant individual performances – 19 students achieving at least two Grade As and six students achieving four straight A grades each, all of which bodes really well for next year’s A2 results.”
