STUDENTS of King’s High School celebrated success with their parents and staff when A Level results were announced.
The Warwick school achieved a 100 per cent pass rate with all papers receiving nearly 40 per cent of A* or A grades.
Grades A* to B were at almost 70 per cent across all papers and A* to C grades – those most highly sought by universities – were awarded nearly 90 per cent of all papers.
A full house of A* to A grades were achieved by 16 girls, with over 60 per cent receiving at least one A* or A grade.
Among those who achieved A*s are Lucy Abell, Jinny Du, Lucy Evans, Rebecca Hickman, Sophie Hodgson, Elizabeth Mutton, Imogen Reed, Sophie Lapage-Norris and Georgia Tolliday.
Achieving a number of As were Jemima Allden, Anna Ellwood, Isabella Hahn, Grace Martin, Esther Miles, Catherine Stanislas and Beatrice Stockport.
The spread of success across sciences, arts, humanities, and technologies stood out this year with 72% of all results in geography achieving A* to A, with further maths and music both standing at 75 per cent, food technology over 85 per cent and Physics at 60 per cent.
And The success of the girls’ achievements was recognised during a recent inspection which concluded in its statement that King’s High pupils made excellent progress compared to the average for pupils of similar abilities, by the time they left school.
A number of girls have secured spots at top universities including Oxbridge candidates, Jinny Du and Lucy Evans who will read history and music respectively, and head girl Esther Miles, who will take up her place at Bristol to read medicine.
Students of the lesser taken AS exams received 60 per cent A grades, with over 80 papers graded A- B, and almost 100 per cent achieving above C grades, with an overall pass rate of 100%.
Headteacher Richard Nicholson said: “Our congratulations to our girls whose results reflect the level of their hard work and dedication, and that of our staff. The new A Levels have received much attention in the press, but we are delighted that, as a group, the girls have exceeded our expectations. 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 were delighted that excellence in personal development and achievements were both rated ‘excellent’ in our recent ISI Inspection Report. We wish all our Year 13 leavers all the very best for the future; we are very proud of them.”
