A Level results day!
King’s High Girls Celebrate Excellence at A Level!
In the Year King’s High School was awarded Independent School of the Year for the West Midlands by The Sunday Times, King’s High girls and their parents joined staff to celebrate superb individual achievements when A Level results were announced.
The headline figures are as follows:
- Over 50% of all results were graded A* to A
- Over 85% of all results were graded A*to B
- Over 96% of all results were graded A* to C
- 100% pass rate overall
- Over 30% of girls received at least one A*
- Nearly 70% of girls received at least one A
- 30% of girls received all A*-A grades
- Almost 2/3rds of girls received A-BB or higher
The strength of the girls' achievements was recognised in the most recent ISI Inspection Report statement: ‘Results in A level examinations and standard measures of progress indicate that pupils make excellent progress by the time they leave the school compared to the average for pupils of similar abilities.’
Outstanding individual King’s High results include:
One girl achieved four A*s, two girls achieved three A*s, two girls achieved two A*s and two As; twins gained identical grades with two A*s and an A, alongside two other girls who also achieved two A*s and an A.
Year on year, our girls’ results ensure that they can continue their education at leading universities and institutions both in the UK and further afield.
As is typical for our Year 13 leavers, around half the girls will be studying humanities, languages, and arts. Around half the girls will be studying STEM subjects. Six girls will be studying at Oxford and Cambridge.
Head Master, Richard Nicholson, commented, “I would like to congratulate all of our girls on their superb results. These reflect their hard work and dedication, the expertise of our staff, and the support of their parents. The girls not only achieve impressive academic results, but flourish in the pursuit of their personal goals over a wide range of disciplines, both curricular and extracurricular. We wish all our Year 13 leavers the very best for the future; we are extremely proud of them.”
