A Level Results

Published: 18/08/2017 12:30:00 | Category: Sixth Form

KSHS is celebrating another year of outstanding A level and AS results with every single student achieving A Level passes in the subjects they took. Students, this year, were the first to complete some of the new tougher A level syllabuses.

69% of grades achieved by A level students were A*-B whilst 87% of grades were A*-C. These high scores mean that hardworking students are able to celebrate securing places at many of the country’s most prestigious universities or are embarking on exciting Gap year plans.

At AS level Year 12 students also impressed with a fantastic 25% of results at the highest possible A grade.

Many students in the year have impressed by meeting their academic potential in examinations whilst juggling demanding extra-curricular commitments. Bella Williams, for example, balanced her A level revision impressively with her training schedule for national running competitions and is now off to study in Utah, USA.

I am so pleased that students’ hard work has earned them such tremendous results this year. Their achievements are the result of their effort and commitment in conjunction with the excellent teaching, advice and guidance provided by staff. Once again I have been impressed by students' individual drive and ambition to achieve the grades they needed and full of admiration for students across the year group who have striven to meet their potential, especially those who have encountered some tough challenges along the way.

We wish all our students well as they take up university places up and down the country, enjoy gap year plans or enter the world of work. We are delighted we have been able to send them on their way having made the most of their school careers.”
