GCSE Results Bring A Galaxy of A*s for King’s High Girls
King’s High School’s GCSE pupils, their families and teachers celebrated their stellar 80.3% A*-A results, which are the highest in the school’s excellent achievement over five years. These stunning results continue the school’s remarkable 2016 results, as last week, King’s girls achieved the highest A*- B results of any girls’ school in Warwickshire.
42.8% of the girls earned all A*s and As in their GCSEs, with two girls, Saffron Rai and Agiya Tadros, achieving ten A*s each. Holly Bolger, Sarah Chapman, Georgia Hill, Penelope Islef and Eleanor King-Turner each attained nine A*s and one A.
GCSE candidates achieved an outstanding A*-B result at 95.1% and an impressive 99.6% of papers received A*-C grades. The school attained a 100% pass rate.
Head Master Richard Nicholson commented, “I congratulate our girls, their families and our staff for the excellence which is demonstrated by these exceptional results.
To have attained the highest results over five years of outstanding GCSE results is something of which they should be very proud. Our 2016 results, both at GCSE and at A Level, where our girls achieved the highest A*-B results of any girls’ school in Warwickshire, are all the more impressive when one considers that our girls accomplish these results whilst excelling in their extracurricular pursuits in sport, music, drama and art.
The GCSE results are especially important in 2016, as they will be the benchmark used by many universities as they make their offers for places in 2018. Our girls can now look forward to beginning their Sixth Form years with a very solid foundation.”
