Among the many individual success stories were:

Head Teacher, Ms Heather Owens, says: “I am full of pride for the girls’ individual success stories today. The results reflect the hard work of the girls and the strong partnership between students, staff and parents. They also reflect Kingsley’s academic rigour across the board with top grades improving yet again. It is particularly impressive that the girls achieve so well academically whilst balancing their many extra-curricular commitments, from Duke of Edinburgh, to LAMDA, performing and sporting successes. We are extremely proud of the well-rounded individuals they have become, and look forward to seeing them continue to flourish in the future.
