The Kingsley community is celebrating outstanding results in this year’s GCSE examinations, following on from a fantastic set of A-level results last week.
Almost 50% of all students achieved A* – A (or equivalent) grades and 98% of all students were awarded 5 A* – C grades. In those subjects with the new grading structure, 34% of girls were awarded levels 7 – 9, with the number of students achieving the highly coveted level 9 significantly higher than national estimates.
Among the many individual success stories were:
Heather Glover, from Wellesbourne, who was awarded 9 A*s (or equivalent) and 1 A grade
Jane Murphy, from Stratford-upon-Avon, who achieved 10 A*As and 1 B, including level 9 grades in English and maths
Chloe Esom, from Leamington Spa, was awarded 10 A*As and 1 B, including a level 9 in English
Poppy Whittaker, also from Leamington Spa, with 9 A*As
Mia Perrins, from Leamington Spa, who was awarded 8 A*As and 1 B
Katie Neal, from Warwick, who achieved 9 A*As including a level 9 in maths
Anna Hardy, from Claverdon, who was awarded 8 A*As and 1 B, including a level 9 in English
Hollie Jones, from Henley-in-Arden, achieving 8 A*As and 3 Bs
Head Teacher, Ms Heather Owens, is thrilled with this year’s results, which continue the school’s trend of achieving academic excellence in examinations. She says:
“I am so proud of all the girls’ efforts to achieve their individual best. Kingsley has a unique ethos and seeing our girls flourish over their time here makes it is an absolute joy to lead the team. Hard working staff prepare the girls well for their examinations and Kingsley girls learn that positivity and effort bring success. I very much look forward to their continued educational journey in our fantastic sixth form.”
